New York: Peri Hellados publication office. The unpaired cartilages are: the cricoid cartilage, a thick cartilage ring on top of the trachea; the thyroid cartilage, a V-shaped cartilage that sits on the cricoid with the point of its 'V' facing forward; and above this, the epiglottic cartilage, shaped like an upright paddle, with its handle held inside the front angle of the thyroid cartilage.

The internal, chiefly longitudinal layer consists of two levators: the stylopharyngeus and the palatopharyngeus. E no appreciable changes in heart structure or function. The shape and size of the rima are altered by movements of the arytenoid cartilages. D Surfactant helps increase alveolar surface tension. The cancer travels through the to other parts of the body.
Laterally, the larynx is related to the carotid sheath, infrahyoid muscles, sternomastoid muscle, and the thyroid gland. The single cartilages are the thyroid, cricoid, and epiglottis. E if the volume goes up, the pressure goes down. Their overlapping has been compared with that of three flower pots placed one inside another.

Cartilage The bronchioles can constrict and dilate because of the? A laser is a thin hot beam of light. B increased cardiac output from the left ventricle. Sensory innervation and blood supply The mucosa of the larynx is supplied on each side chiefly by the internal laryngeal branch of the superior laryngeal nerve, which supplies the larynx as far down as the vocal folds. The mucous membrane over each vocal ligament has nonkeratinizing, stratified squamous epithelium, is firmly bound down, and appears white. The pharynx is the part of the digestive system situated posterior to the nasal and oral cavities and posterior to the larynx.
