They are suspended in the epiglottic fold.
What is the purpose of the Arytenoid cartilages?

What are the vocal folds?
Mucous membranes that flap over the vocal ligaments.
What helps to manipulate the sounds in our voice?
The arytenoid muscles.
When you swallow what goes up and what goes down when feeling your laryngeal prominence?
The laryngeal prominence goes up and the epiglottis goes down.
What is the rema glottidis or it could also be known as the glottis?
It is a slit between the right and left vocal folds.

When is the epiglottis open?
When we breathe.

When you are swallowing food.
What is the tracheal division called?
Tracheal bifurcation.
What is the purpose of the tracheal anular ligaments?
It holds the cartilages of the trachea together.
What are the first two major branches of the bronchial tree called?
Left and Right principal bronchi.
Which of the two principal bronchi is the longest?
The left side because it has to go further to the heart.
Which of the two are more vertical?
