Cricothyroid Muscles. These muscles, which are located on the anterior surface of the larynx, can swing the entire thyroid cartilage anteriorly. This action provides an additional way to tense the vocal folds and thereby change the frequency of phonation (Figure 1–14E). 22 SECTION ONE THE CARDIOPULMONARY SYSTEM—THE ESSENTIALS Ventilatory Function of the Larynx A primary function of the larynx is to ensure a free flow of air to and from the lungs.
