The Nose
By Jennifer Kenny

1     Did you ever hear the expression "It's as plain as the nose on your face"? A nose can be a focal point on a person's face. Noses come in all shapes and sizes. It's often one of the most noticeable features. That's appropriate since the nose is such an important part of the respiratory system.
2     The nose is the first workstation in the respiratory system. It is the entrance to the respiratory system. It makes incoming air warm, moist, and clean. It is also essential to the sense of smell.
3     The nose itself is made of curved plates of cartilage. The two entrance holes, or nostrils, of the nose are held open by these plates. The septal cartilage runs in the middle of the nose, separating the nasal cavity, or air chamber. Skull bones form the roof, sides, and floor of the nasal cavity.
