All of our bodily systems work in perfect harmony with each other, to maintain the great equilibrium within us, to allow ourselves to function. There are some essential practices we must work into our lives in order to live this beautiful life, of which being what I am about to discuss today: respiration. Our breathing is possible due to several necessary bits and pieces. The oxygen in our atmosphere is inhaled by the lungs, through the nasal or oral cavity, into our pharynx, containing 3 parts. The oropharynx, the pathway for air through the mouth. The nasopharynx, being the pathway through the nose, and the laryngopharynx, which leads further down the neck to the larynx. However before it reaches the larynx, the Epiglottis opens the pathway to the lungs. Its job is to direct food to the stomach or air to the lungs. If one goes to the other, the Epiglottis would be doing itself harm, as it is damaging the very body it belongs to. Past the epiglottis

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
