Airway Evaluation and Management - Applied Anatomy
The pharynx is divided into the nasopharynx, the oropharynx, and the laryngopharynx.
- The nasopharynx consists of the nasal passages, including the septum, turbinates, and adenoids.
- The oropharynx consists of the oral cavity, including the dentition and tongue.
- The epiglottis separates the laryngopharynx into the larynx (leading to the trachea) and the hypopharynx (leading to the esophagus).
