  • Cartilages of the Larynx

There are 4 cartilages in the larynx whose initial letters are TEAC (also the brandname of a home stereo). Associate the TEAC sound and the vocal cords, and you get the connection.

Thyroid
Epiglottis
Arytenoid
Cricoid


  • The snake in Garden of Eden spoke with a lisp, saying "Adam, thry thith apple." This refers to the fact that the THYRoid cartilage is also called the Adam's Apple.

  • Lung Lobes

The segments of the (right) Middle Lobe of the lung are Medial and Lateral [ML=ML]


  • Nasal Cavity

Never Call Me Needle Nose helps remember the parts of the nasal cavity: Nares (external), Conchae, Meatuses, Nares (internal), Nasopharynx.


  • Respiratory Tract

It's a bit of an extended version of the Airflow Passage mnemonic above. Movie Personality Lana Turner's Pretty Sexy Thighs Turn Retinas All Around helps you recall the order of the respiratory tract segments...
