Upper Airway

What is the Upper Airway?

Upper Airway diagram

Everything from the tip of the nose and the mouth, to the opening of the throat above the vocal chords.

The upper airway is the passage that goes from the nose, through the sinuses, past the back of the palate, into the space behind the tongue, through the voice box, and into the trachea.
