Definition of windpipe in English:
The air passage from the throat to the lungs; the trachea.
- The windpipe is connected to each lung by a large airway called the bronchus.
- In some cases, such as when the swollen epiglottis blocks the windpipe, a tracheostomy may be performed.
- Find your pulse by placing your index and third finger on your neck to the side of your windpipe, over your carotid artery.
