Example text

The upper airway can become blocked in emergency with secretions and vomitus and clearing the upper airway is an essential first stage in the provision of artificial ventilation in an emergency. The lower airways contain smooth muscle cells which are controlled by the autonomic nervous system. This means that they can constrict in reaction to immune challenges, as in bronchial asthma and can be affected by drugs such as adrenaline and salbutamol which can counteract such constriction. The lower airways provide the lung with several defence mechanisms to protect the all – important but fragile alveoli.

4 The Larynx The larynx (Fig. 7) is an important structure in the upper airway which essentially acts as a valve protecting the airways from foreign substances such as food and secretions. It also produces vocal sounds. It is formed of cartilages, ligaments, membranes and small muscles. The structure is complex but essentially the larynx consists of three unpaired cartilages, the epiglottis, and the thyroid and cricoid cartilages and three paired cartilages, the arytenoid, cuneiform and corniculate.

This is situated at the level of the 4th and 5th thoracic vertebrae. 1 Key Points 1. The trachea can be opened surgically by tracheostomy to provide emergency access to the airway. However, this is a surgical procedure and is not appropriate during emergency for non – specialists. Instead, access through the cricothyroid membrane should be used (Fig. 1) 2. The division of the trachea into the right and left main bronchi means that an endotracheal tube which is too long will enter the right main bronchus, since this is more in line with the direction of the trachea.
