Respiratory System in a Child
The nose, mouth, throat (pharynx and larynx), and hollow spaces in the cheeks and around the eyes (sinuses) make up the upper respiratory tract. The windpipe, breathing tubes (bronchial tubes and bronchioles), and structures inside the lungs make up the lower respiratory tract.
