nerve that transmits motor impulses to the diaphragm
one of a pair of nerves that arises from cervical spinal roots and passes down the thorax to innervate the diaphragm and control breathing
The motor nerve of the diaphragm. The phrenic nerve fibers originate in the cervical spinal column (mostly C4) and travel through the cervical plexus to the diaphragm.
Nerve arising from three cervical nerve roots (C-3 to C-5); supplies the diaphragm.
A nerve related to the diaphragm
