These are attached by short tubes, the bronchi, to the long cartilaginous trachea.
The first of these tubes are called the trache and the latter the bronchi.
Their size varies with that of the bronchi in which they are formed.
Trachea simple, generally cylindrical, with the bronchi wide, and a single pair of slender inferior laryngeal muscles.
Suppuration at times takes place in the bronchi and may extend to the lung tissue.
Parts of the lungs have been removed to show the branching of the air tubes or bronchi which pass into them.
Eighty-five sections (figure 7, X) caudad to the one under discussion the trachea divides into the two bronchi.
The bronchi and pharynx showed no changes, the mucous membrane being pale and thin.
The lungs were excessively emphysematous, and there was much secretion in the bronchi; the liver was slightly cirrhotic.
Again, the air-tubes or tracheæ of insects are, like the trachea and bronchi of many Vertebrates, air-breathing organs.
bronchus bron·chus (brŏng'kəs)
n. pl. bron·chi (-kī', -kē')
