The airways of the lungs. The main bronchi are the airways that connect the windpipe (trachea) to each lung. So there is a right and a left bronchus. The bronchi connect to the secondary bronchi that go to each lobe of the lungs. There are even smaller tertiary bronchi that go to each segment of the lungs.
Hollow air passages that branch from the largest segment (the windpipe or trachea) into the lungs. Oxygen-containing air passes into the lungs through the bronchial tubes, and waste gases (mostly carbon dioxide) pass out of the lungs.
branches of the respiratory passageway including primary bronchi (divisions of the trachea), secondary/ lobar bronchi (to the lobes of the lung) and tertiary/ segmental bronchi (to bronchopulmonary segments of the lung)
The airways that lead from the trachea to each lung, and then subdivide into smaller and smaller branches. They connect to the bronchioles. The walls of the bronchi are made of smooth lining tissue (called endothelium) over fibrous connective tissue, cartilage, and smooth muscle. They also have many glands to produce mucus. (singular: bronchus)
are two large tubes at the bottom of the trachea. One leads to the left lung and the other goes to the right lung. Each bronchus—the name for just one bronchi—branches into smaller and smaller bronchial tubes.
Tube-like passageways (airways) that allow the air we breathe to enter and exit the lungs. Like a tree, each bronchus divides again and again, becoming narrower each time. The narrowest "branch" , or "passageway", is called a bronchiole.
The large air tubes leading from the trachea to the lungs that convey air to and from the lungs. The bronchi have cartilage as part of their supporting wall structure. The trachea divides to form the right and left main bronchi which, in turn, divide to form the lobar , segmental, and finally the subsegmental bronchi. See the entire definition of Bronchi
