Ethmoid Air Cells: The ethmoid air cells are tiny cavities of air that make up the ethmoid labyrinth. They are located in the skull and together as a group, form the ethmoid sinuses in the area between the upper nose and the eyes. They are separated into individual air cells by bony laminae.
The function of ethmoid air cells is believed to include warming, moistening, and filtering inspired air and maximizing voice quality. They may also provide some protection from facial and head trauma and minimize the total weight of the skull. The ethmoid air cells consist of variety of elements, including cilia and respiratory epithelium, mucus membranes and ostia. They drain into the nasal meati. Conditions that can afflict the ethmoid air cells include upper respiratory infections, sinusitis, respiratory allergies, smoking, sinus fractures, and trauma.
