the space where the trachea divides is called the "tracheal bifurcation". This is the place in the treacha where it divides into the 2 broncholes that go into the right and left lung. They further divide in to the broncholies and then into aveolary ducts and finally into the arveoli sacs where the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide occurs.
