The larynx starts from the laryngeal inlet to the lower margin of the cricoid cartilage. (Burdett, 2011)It lies opposed the 3rd to 6th cervical vertebrae, being a slight higher in female than in male. The larynx can be divided anatomically into 3 regions, the supraglottis, glottis and subglottis by limitation of the false and true cords (Monnier, 2011).
