Glossary of Terms
The tube-like structure that allows inhaled air to reach the lungs. The trachea, in non-medical terms, is often referred to as the "wind pipe". The trachea begins immediately below the larynx in the neck and travels into the chest where it divides into two main tubes, known as bronchi. The bronchi are known as the right mainstem bronchus and the left mainstem bronchus.
