warms air
lined with fine hairs called cillia and stuicky mucus that filters air pharynx
back of mouth
location of epiglottis which prevents food from entering airway larynx
location of vocal cords trachea
tube made from rings of cartilage through which air travels to your lungs
lined with mucus and cillia bronchi
two short tubes which lead to the lungs bronchioles
narrow tubes which lead to the lungs alveoli
clusters of tiny thin-walled sacs
