What functions of the respiratory tract are lost with use of a ventilator and trache tube?
The upper respiratory tract also functions to warm and humidify the air you breath so this is one function that is lost. To counter this the air/oxygen mix should be warmed and humidified. If not the lining of the respiratory tract would become dried and damaged as a result.
The upper respiratory tract also serves to filter particles from the air so filters must be attached to the ventilator. (+ info
what prevents food and liquids from entering the respiratory tract?
what prevents food and liquids from entering the repiratory tract
Epiglotis, a cartilaginous flap that lies above the voice box. when you start to swallow, the epiglotis covers the entrance to the voice box, the initial part of the respiratory tract.
You can see the epiglotis in the young babies when their mouth is wide open, because their voice box is higher. The higher placed voice box allows them to breast (or bottle) feed and breath at the same time. Milk flows around, left and right, the voice box into the esophagus, instead of over the top of it if it was placed lower. As the baby grows the voice box descends, making it no longer possible to breath and eat at the same time. (+ info

Upper respiratory tract infection and chest pain when coughing!!?
I am 25 weeks pregnant and have a upper respiratory tract infection. I cannot sleep at night due to runny and congested nose, watery eyes, bad cough and when i cough my chest really hurts, could this be something worse and will it harm my baby, my doc says it wil take 2-3 days to get over it's been 5 days already and seems to be getting worse.
Sounds like you have a nasty lingering cold to me. The chest pain will be from the coughing. It won't do your baby any harm it is just a horrible nuisance for you. The doctor won't be able to do anthing for you except advising rest and plenty to drink.
What I would recommend is using a steam bath or steam inhaler to help clear your nose. Fill a bowl with boiling water, stick a towel over your head and the bowl and inhale the steam. If you have some eucalyptus oil, put a few drops in the boiling water and it will work even better. (+ info
Why has Christina Aguilera contracted a viral upper respiratory tract infection?
Just wondering what's caused Christina's illness? Is it from singing too much or oversinging etc?
You don't get an infection from singing too much. You could strain your vocal cords, but no infection. You get infections from letting your immune system get run down, possibly from too busy of a schedule, not eating properly, not getting proper nutrition and being exposed to someone else with an upper respitory infection.
