The components of upper airway respiratory functions performed, chewing, swallowing, articulation, resonance and phonation. The lower airway consists of the trachea, bronchi and lungs. Its function is specifically breathing. The air intake in normal situations is done through the nose and it is here where the air is heated, filtered and humidified. The air then passes into the nasopharynx (posterior nasal cavity), oropharynx (posterior oral cavity), pharynx, larynx, trachea, bronchi and lungs where it finally makes the exchange of gases.
Disorders of the upper airway. Following are some conditions that prevent or hinder the passage of air through the nose and produce Respirator Syndrome Study. 1. Chronic allergies. 2. Deviated nasal septum. 3. Nasal polyps. 4. Hypertrophic adenoids. 5. Hypertrophic tonsils. 6. Choanal atresia. The above conditions prevent air is filtered and heated in the nasal cavity and enter through the mouth into the lungs by promoting the development of viral flu. Features mouth breather. 1. The children get colds often, even more than the average (bronchitis, acute laryngitis, otitis, etc.)
