Example text

The Pharynx Moreover, during deglutition, the Eustachian auditory tube is opened, thus equalizing the pressure on either side of the ear drum. Deglutition is a complex, orderly series of reflexes. It is initiated voluntarily but is completed by involuntary reflex actions set up by stimulation of the pharynx; if the pharynx is anaesthetized, normal swallowing cannot take place. The reflexes are coordinated by the deglutition centre in the medulla, which lies near the vagal nucleus and the respiratory centres.

3 The interarytenoid muscle, the only unpaired muscle of the larynx, runs between the two arytenoid cartilages. Its action is to help close the glottis, particularly its posterior part. The muscle is made up of transverse and oblique fibres; the latter continue upwards and outwards as the aryepiglottic muscle, which lies within the aryepiglottic fold and acts as a rather feeble sphincter to the inlet of the larynx. The Larynx 4 The thyroarytenoid muscle has its origin from the posterior aspect of the junction of the laminae of the thyroid cartilage and is inserted into the arytenoid cartilage on its antero-lateral aspect, from the tip of its vocal process back onto its muscular process.

46 The mediastinal aspect of the right lung. the 5th and 6th costal cartilages. The lower border of the lung has an excursion of as much as 5–8 cm in the extremes of respiration, but in the neutral position (midway between inspiration and expiration), it lies along a line which crosses the 6th rib in the mid-clavicular line, and the 8th rib in the mid-axillary line, and which reaches the 10th rib adjacent to the vertebral column posteriorly. The lung lobes (see Figs 44 & 45) Each lung is divided by a deep oblique fissure, and the right lung is further divided by a transverse fissure.
