Larynx and Trachea — two great body parts that make beautiful music together, now in happy plush form! This team brings a breath of fresh air to your lungs! The larynx helps with talking, singing and breathing while the tube-like trachea draws air deep into your lungs. Your vocal cords, along with your mouth muscles, lips and tongue, create the sound of your voice. Breathe easy!
How healthy are your lungs? Now you can test how efficient your lungs are, right from your own smartphone! An app called SpiroSmart acts like a spirometer, and even comes quite close to the accuracy of medical spirometers. All you do is take a deep breath and breathe toward your phone, which analyzes the reverberation of your lips. Have you ever used this app, or a spirometer before? I would love to hear your stories below.
