What is the function of cartilage in the bronchus?
The function of cartilage in the bronchus is to hold the soft tissue open so that air may pass through. The cartilage in the bronchus are C-shaped rings.

It varies. It can serve the same function as bone (note all bones begin ascartilage). Flexable (slightly) connection between bones. (see ribs) To give shape to protrusions (se…e nose & ears).

The bronchi are lined with mucous membrane and ciliated cells which trap and help in the removal of any dirt and dust that enters. The bronchus helps you breathe. If you mean bronchial tube, it leads the air containing oxygen from the atmosphere into your lungs when you breathe in and it leads out the air containing carbon dioxide when you breathe out. to transport air to rest of body Allow air to pass from trachea to lungs it moves the air aaround from the lungs Your Mum and Dad The bronchus also known as the air sacs has an extremely thin wall with a rich blood flow. Oxygen comes in through the trachea and into the bronchus were the gas exchange of Co2 and oxygen takes place Glucose+Oxygen=water+energy+ Co2

Cartilage has bone marrow, so therefore it connects bones to bones in the skeletal system.
Cartilage acts as a cushion between joints, to prevent the bonesfrom rubbing against each other (such as the cartilage in the kneesand elbows) and also reduces friction in the… joint with movement.It also holds some bones together, such as rib cartilage. Cartilagealso forms bone when you are growing - the ends of your long bones(arm and leg bones) are formed of cartilage when you are young, andthis gradually changes into bone and grows longer. Cartilage is a flexible connective tissue found in many areas inthe bodies of humans and other animals, including the jointsbetween bones, the rib cage, the ear, the nose, the elbow, theknee, the ankle, the bronchial tubes and the intervertebral discs.It is not as hard and rigid as bone but is stiffer and lessflexible than muscle. Cartilage is also the only body tissue that never stops growing!Look at some very old people and you will see that the end of theirnose and their earlobes are bigger than yours - this is becausethose areas are made of cartilage and keep growing all of yourlife.
The right bronchus is a passage leading from the trachea/windpipe into the right lung. When objects are aspirated, they are more likely to end up in the right bronchus than th…e left because its angle at the carina (the point where the trachea divides into a left and right bronchus) is more vertical/leads more straight down
Right or Left main stem bronchus is for the carina and this is a bifurcation that sends air to both lungs. Sierra Q.
The function of the left bronchus, similar to that of the right, is to allow the passage of air to and from the lungs and trachea/windpipe. The only difference between the …two bronchi is that the angle of the right bronchus at the carina (point of bifurcation) is straight while the left one is more angled. This is why in case someone aspirates something, it is almost always found lodged in the right bronchus instead of the left (despite sharing a common passageway/trachea).
You do not have anything like bronchus in your lungs. Air passes from nose to pharynx, larynx and then to trachea. Trachea divides into two branches. One each for both lungs. …Each of them is called as primary bronchus. Each divide into ten branches. Each of them divide into two branches. This type of branching reapeates for about seventeen times. So at last you have terminal bronchioles. So number of bronchi is very large. This is there to increase the surface area of the gaseous exchange. Function of the bronchi is to transfer the air to alveoli. to get the number of alveoli, you have to multiply the number of bronchi six more times. This gives you the surface area of about hundred squre meters for gaseous exchange.
Yes. They are surrounded on all sides by intermittent "plates" of hyaline cartilage.
There are actually several different kinds of cartilage in the body, but the tracheal rings are the hardest (softer cartilage is found in bendy things like your ears and nose)…. They're there so your windpipe doesn't collapse in on itself, kind of like a hula hoop keeping a large trash bag open.
