4 Diagram of Upper & Lower Respiratory Systems

nose nasal cavity pharynx

6 The Nose Air enters through 2 openings called nostrils
Wall of cartilage separates the 2 nostrils Air is heated by warm blood flowing through blood vessels in the lining of the nasal cavities Mucus keeps air moist & keeps tissues from drying out

7 The Nose Continued Mucus along with little hairs called cilia trap tiny particles entering the nose These cilia also sweep old mucus towards the esophagus & down to the stomach where it is destroyed by hydrochloric acid


9 Lower Respiratory System Larynx Trachea Bronchi Bronchioles Alveoli

10 The Anatomy of the Larynx

11 Trachea (windpipe) Bronchus Bronchus bronchioles bronchioles alveoli

12 Diaphragm Main muscle used in breathing

13 Diaphragm Dome-shaped muscle at the bottom of the lungs.
When you breathe in, the diaphragm contracts and flattens out while pulling downward. This movement enlarges the space that the lungs are in. This larger space pulls air into the lungs. When you breathe out, the diaphragm relaxes reducing the amount of space for the lungs and forcing air out. The diaphragm is the main muscle used in breathing.
