Drugs designed to treat inflammation of the nasal passages, generally the result of an infection (more often than not the common cold) or an allergy related condition, e.g., hay fever. The inflammation involves swelling of the mucous membrane that lines the nasal passages and results in inordinate mucus production. The primary class of nasal decongestants are vasoconstrictor agents. (From PharmAssist, The Family Guide to Health and Medicine, 1993)

Air-filled spaces located within the bones around the NASAL CAVITY. They are extensions of the nasal cavity and lined by the ciliated NASAL MUCOSA. Each sinus is named for the cranial bone in which it is located, such as the ETHMOID SINUS; the FRONTAL SINUS; the MAXILLARY SINUS; and the SPHENOID SINUS.
Procedures of applying ENDOSCOPES for disease diagnosis and treatment. Endoscopy involves passing an optical instrument through a small incision in the skin i.e., percutaneous; or through a natural orifice and along natural body pathways such as the digestive tract; and/or through an incision in the wall of a tubular structure or organ, i.e. transluminal, to examine or perform surgery on the interior parts of the body.

Hindrance of the passage of luminal contents in the DUODENUM. Duodenal obstruction can be partial or complete, and caused by intrinsic or extrinsic factors. Simple obstruction is associated with diminished or stopped flow of luminal contents. Strangulating obstruction is associated with impaired blood flow to the duodenum in addition to obstructed flow of luminal contents.
A malignant olfactory neuroblastoma arising from the olfactory epithelium of the superior nasal cavity and cribriform plate. It is uncommon (3% of nasal tumors) and rarely is associated with the production of excess hormones (e.g., SIADH, Cushing Syndrome).

The sudden, forceful, involuntary expulsion of air from the NOSE and MOUTH caused by irritation to the MUCOUS MEMBRANES of the upper RESPIRATORY TRACT.
Drugs that selectively bind to but do not activate histamine H1 receptors, thereby blocking the actions of endogenous histamine. Included here are the classical antihistaminics that antagonize or prevent the action of histamine mainly in immediate hypersensitivity. They act in the bronchi, capillaries, and some other smooth muscles, and are used to prevent or allay motion sickness, seasonal rhinitis, and allergic dermatitis and to induce somnolence. The effects of blocking central nervous system H1 receptors are not as well understood.

A disorder characterized by recurrent apneas during sleep despite persistent respiratory efforts. It is due to upper airway obstruction. The respiratory pauses may induce HYPERCAPNIA or HYPOXIA. Cardiac arrhythmias and elevation of systemic and pulmonary arterial pressures may occur. Frequent partial arousals occur throughout sleep, resulting in relative SLEEP DEPRIVATION and daytime tiredness. Associated conditions include OBESITY; ACROMEGALY; MYXEDEMA; micrognathia; MYOTONIC DYSTROPHY; adenotonsilar dystrophy; and NEUROMUSCULAR DISEASES. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p395)

Interference with the secretion of tears by the lacrimal glands. Obstruction of the LACRIMAL SAC or NASOLACRIMAL DUCT causing acute or chronic inflammation of the lacrimal sac (DACRYOCYSTITIS). It is caused also in infants by failure of the nasolacrimal duct to open into the inferior meatus and occurs about the third week of life. In adults occlusion may occur spontaneously or after injury or nasal disease. (Newell, Ophthalmology: Principles and Concepts, 7th ed, p250)
Simultaneous and continuous monitoring of several parameters during sleep to study normal and abnormal sleep. The study includes monitoring of brain waves, to assess sleep stages, and other physiological variables such as breathing, eye movements, and blood oxygen levels which exhibit a disrupted pattern with sleep disturbances.

Influence of nasal obstruction on auto-CPAP behaviour during sleep in sleep apnoea/hypopnoea syndrome. (1/214)

BACKGROUND: Auto-CPAP machines have been developed to adapt automatically the positive pressure level to the required needs. The auto-CPAP response to transient nasal obstruction was tested during sleep in patients with sleep apnoea/hypopnoea syndrome (SAHS). METHODS: Nasal obstruction was induced by local instillation of histamine. Fourteen nasal challenges were performed on eight patients, seven while the patients were on the "Morphee plus" apparatus and the other seven with the patients on the "Horizon" machine. RESULTS: Nasal resistance increased initially by a mean (SD) of 166 (66)% during the trials with the "Morphee plus" and by 118 (44)% with the "Horizon" machine. The increase in nasal resistance was always accompanied by flow limitation with one exception. Mask pressure initially decreased to the minimal permitted value as nasal resistance increased with the "Morphee plus" device. A late increase of the positive pressure level occurred sometimes. Mask pressure did not change with increasing nasal resistance when the "Horizon" device was used. CONCLUSION: Neither the "Morphee plus" nor the "Horizon" device abolished flow limited breaths and resulting sleep fragmentation. We conclude that, despite the different algorithm of pressure changes, these auto-CPAP machines do not adequately respond to an acute increase in nasal resistance.  (+info)

MR appearance of rhinoscleroma. (2/214)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: We describe the MR imaging appearance of rhinoscleroma, an endemic, chronic, granulomatous disease whose causative agent is Klebsiella rhinoscleromatis. METHODS: The study included 15 patients (nine males and six females; mean age, 25 years; range, 13-36 years) with rhinoscleroma. MR imaging was performed in all patients. The signal intensity of the nasal masses was compared with that of fat, muscle, and CSF on both T1- and T2-weighted images. All cases were proved by histopathologic examination. RESULTS: The nasal masses were bilateral and symmetrical (n = 6), asymmetrical (n = 4), or unilateral (n = 5). They extended through the anterior nares (n = 9) or posterior choana into the nasopharynx (n = 3). They obstructed the ostiomeatal units with retained secretions in the related sinuses (n = 10). On T1-weighted images, rhinoscleroma showed striking (n = 9) or mild (n = 6) high signal intensity relative to muscle and CSF, but less hyperintensity than fat. On T2-weighted images, the nasal masses showed homogeneous high signal intensity (n = 10) or heterogeneous high signal intensity associated with hypointense foci (n = 5). They were hyperintense relative to fat and muscle, but less hyperintense than CSF. CONCLUSION: The hypertrophic stage of rhinoscleroma has characteristic mild to marked high signal intensity on both T1- and T2-weighted MR images.  (+info)

Nasal patency and lavage biomarkers in relation to settled dust and cleaning routines in schools. (3/214)

OBJECTIVES: This study determined the relations between settled dust and cleaning routines in classrooms on one hand, and nasal symptoms, nasal cavity dimensions, and the concentration of selected biomarkers of inflammation in nasal lavage on the other. METHODS: Measurements of settled dust via standardized vacuum cleaning and an investigation of the cleaning routines were performed in 12 randomly selected primary schools in the municipality of Uppsala. Clinical examinations including acoustic rhinometry and nasal lavage were performed in the school environment among 279 school personnel working in the main buildings of the schools. Eosinophil cationic protein (ECP), myeloperoxidase (MPO), lysozyme, and albumin were analyzed in the lavage fluid. The relationships between the medical and hygienic data were analyzed both bivariately and with a multiple regression model controlling for age, gender, smoking, atopy, room temperature, and urban vicinity of the school. RESULTS: The amount of settled dust was positively related to subjective nasal obstruction and smaller nasal cavity dimensions measured with acoustic rhinometry. The noses were less patent, and the levels of ECP or lysozyme in the lavage were increased for the subjects in schools with a lower frequency of floor mopping, a lower frequency of desk cleaning, and where wet mopping was used. CONCLUSIONS: Our results indicate that the actual dust levels in Swedish classrooms can affect the occurrence of nasal obstruction among school personnel. A beneficial effect on the clinical signs of the nasal mucosa was observed for a higher frequency of both floor mopping and desk cleaning, whereas the use of wet mopping seemed disadvantageous in comparison with dry mopping. These findings illustrate the need for adequate cleaning procedures to minimize the environmental effects on the airway mucosa.  (+info)

Asymptomatic intranasal abnormalities influencing the choice of nostril for nasotracheal intubation. (4/214)

We have studied the prevalence of intranasal abnormalities that may influence the choice of nostril for intubation, using the fibreoptic laryngoscope, in 60 oral surgery patients presenting for nasotracheal intubation under general anaesthesia, who had no symptoms or signs of nasal obstruction. Videotape recordings were made during each nasendoscopy and later analysed by an anaesthetist and an otolaryngologist. A total of 68% of patients had intranasal abnormalities (10% bilateral and 58% unilateral) which resulted in one nostril being more patent than the other and therefore considered more suitable for intubation. The most common abnormality was deviated nasal septum which occurred in 57% of the study group; 22% were minor deviations, 13% were major deviations and 22% were impactions. Other abnormalities were simple spurs, unilateral polyp and hypertrophy of the inferior turbinate. In view of the relatively high incidence of intranasal pathology revealed on endoscopic examination, anaesthetists should consider using the fibreoptic laryngoscope to select the best nostril when performing nasotracheal intubation.  (+info)

Management of respiratory failure with ventilation via intranasal stents in cystic fibrosis. (5/214)

External nasal dilation reduces snoring in chronic rhinitis patients: a randomized controlled trial. (6/214)

Chronic rhinitis patients often suffer from unrefreshing sleep and snoring, related to increased nasal resistance to airflow. Previous trials based on subjective assessment of snoring have demonstrated beneficial effects of Breathe Right (BR), a noninvasive external nasal dilator. Polysomnography (PSG) was applied to objectively assess the effects of BR on snoring. Twelve nonobese chronic rhinitis patients participated in the present study, which had a randomized, placebo-controlled design. The presence of snoring and the absence of sleep apnoea was demonstrated during a baseline overnight sleep study. Patients were then randomized for placebo or true nasal dilator treatment, which was also assessed by overnight PSG. The use of BR had no effect on sleep quality, arousal-index apnoea-hypopnoea-index or snoring loudness. Snoring frequency was significantly lowered by BR (173+/-29 snores x h(-l)), compared with placebo (258+/-34 snores x h(-1); p=0.016). The results support the hypothesis that Breathe Right is effective in reducing the amount of snoring in patients with chronic rhinitis. This objective finding is in line with some other reports on subjective improvement of snoring, based upon the judgement of bedpartners.  (+info)

Airway disorders and pulmonary function in snorers. A population-based study. (7/214)

The aim of our study was to determine the relationship between snoring, airway disorders and pulmonary function in the general population. We performed a stratified random sampling from the population (n = 92,364). Four hundred subjects agreed to participate and were invited to the clinic, where a detailed medical history, physical examination, spirometric test and maximal respiratory pressures measurements were carried out. Snoring was reported by 152 subjects (38%). Nasal obstruction and the presence of abnormal pharynx exploration were more frequent in subjects with snoring. Age, body mass index and neck circumference were significantly higher in the snorer group. In addition, we found that the non-snoring group had a significantly higher frequency of tonsillectomy during infancy and adolescence than the snorer group. We did not detect any significant difference in spirometric test values or in maximal respiratory pressure values between snorer group and non-snorer group. In conclusion, in the general population snoring is associated with nasal obstruction and abnormal pharynx exploration. Furthermore, snoring appears not to be associated with modifications in spirometric or in maximal respiratory pressure tests.  (+info)

A cephalometric comparison of subjects with snoring and obstructive sleep apnoea. (8/214)

This prospective study analysed the upright lateral cephalometric radiographs of 115 dentate, Caucasian males. Forty-five subjects exhibited proven obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA), 46 were simple snorers, and the remaining 24 subjects, who had no history of respiratory disease and did not snore, acted as controls. Radiographs were traced and digitized, and comparisons were made of the dento-skeletal, soft tissue, and oropharyngeal features of the three groups. Differences were also sought between the snoring and OSA subjects. Of the hard tissue measurements, only the cranial base angle and mandibular body length showed significant inter-group differences (P < 0.001 and P < 0.05, respectively). When the airway and associated structures were examined, both snorers and OSA subjects exhibited narrower airways, reduced oropharyngeal areas, shorter and thicker soft palates, and larger tongues than their control counterparts. Comparison of the two sleep disordered breathing groups showed no differences in any of the skeletal or dental variables examined. However in OSA subjects, the soft palate was larger and thicker (P < 0.05), both lingual and oropharyngeal areas were increased (P < 0.01 and P < 0.05, respectively) and the hyoid was further from the mandibular plane (P < 0.05). Thus, whilst the dento-skeletal patterns of snorers resembled those of subjects with OSA, some differences in soft tissue and hyoid orientation were apparent. There was not, however, a recognizable gradation in size of the airway and its associated structures from control through snoring to OSA subjects. This suggests that there may be a cephalometrically recognizable predisposition towards the development of sleep disordered breathing, but that this is only one facet of the condition.  (+info)

Background. Allergic rhinitis and Asthma are considered as one airway disease. Theophylline is used as a bronchodilator in asthma and also has anti-inflammatory properties. We hypothesize that low dose theophylline in persistent allergic rhinitis improves total nasal symptom score (TNSS).. Methods. We conducted a double-blind, randomised placebo controlled crossover study of Theophylline 200 mgs twice a day for 4 weeks in 21 patients with persistent rhinitis. Primary outcome was change in TNSS. Secondary endpoint measures were differences in peak nasal inspiratory flow,Sino-Nasal Outcome Test. Participants continued with their intra nasal steroids and antihistamines.. Results. There was no significant differences in TNSS, peak nasal inspiratory flow or sino-nasal outcome test between treatment periods but there was a non-significant improvement with Theophylline treatment period ...

Discussion. Sleep-disordered breathing (SDB), according to the Third International Classification of Sleep Disorders (ICSD-3),22 is characterized by ventilation abnormalities during sleep and, sometimes may be present during wakefulness. It comprises four categories: OSAS, central sleep apnea, sleep-related hypoventilation/hypoxemia, and upper-airway resistance syndrome (UARS); individuals can display more than one condition. This review shows a series of 297 cases, in which patients with different causes of nasal obstruction were submitted to clinical and surgical interventions, and were evaluated for polysomnography indices and clinical improvement.. OSAS was the best-studied and most accepted disorder in the medical community. It is characterized by partial or total obstruction of the upper airways, called hypopnea and apnea, with episodic drops in oxyhemoglobin saturation and recurrent awakenings.10 In addition to these events, respiratory effort-related arousals (RERA) may occur, without ...
These include deformities of the nose and nasal septum; the thin, flat cartilage and bone that divides the two sides of the nose and nostrils. These deformities are usually the result of an injury, sometimes having occurred in childhood. Seven percent of newborn babies suffer significant nasal injury in the birth process. Nasal injuries are common in both children and adults. If they obstruct breathing, surgical correction may be helpful.. One of the most common causes of nasal obstruction in children is enlargement of the adenoids. These are a tonsil-like tissue located in the back of the nose, behind the palate. Children with this problem may experience noisy breathing at night and may snore. Children who are chronic mouth breathers may develop a sagging face and dental deformities. In this case, surgery to remove the adenoids and/or tonsils may be advisable.. Of course, one of the most common causes of nasal obstruction is chronic sinusitis. Inflammation in the sinuses, nasal polyps, and ...
Rarely, masses such as nasal polyps and even cancer may cause symptoms of nasal obstruction. As such, an initial important part of any examination investigating a persons nasal obstruction is nasal endoscopy. Nasal endoscopy enables the physician to look into the back half of the nose which is not able to be seen by just looking into the nose with a flashlight. Beyond the examination, an exact description of a persons complaints is helpful to determine what type of treatment whether medical or surgical would be most beneficial. The most common scenarios are described below:. If the patient is a child younger than 5 years old,. I cant breathe through my nose mainly one side.. ...
The quandary is whether surgical intervention to resolve nasal obstruction will actually work if the same patient also has bad allergies.

The Nasal Allergen Challenge (NAC) model allows the study of Allergic Rhinitis (AR) pathophysiology and the proof of concept of novel therapies. The Allergic Rhinitis - Clinical Investigator Collaborative (AR-CIC) aims to optimize the protocol, ensuring reliability and repeatability of symptoms to better evaluate the therapies under investigation. 20 AR participants were challenged, with 4-fold increments of their respective allergens every 15 minutes, to determine the qualifying allergen concentration (QAC) at which the Total Nasal Symptom Score (TNSS) of ≥10/12 OR a Peak Nasal Inspiratory Flow (PNIF) reduction of ≥50% from baseline was achieved. At the NAC visit, the QAC was used in a single challenge and TNSS and PNIF were recorded at baseline, 15 minutes, 30 minutes, 1 hour, and hourly up to 12 hours. 10 additional ragweed allergic participants were qualified at TNSS of ≥8/12 AND ≥50% PNIF reduction; the Cumulative Allergen Challenge (CAC) of all incremental doses was used during the NAC
Abstract Introduction: Field studies for allergic rhinitis (AR) commonly have inconsistent allergen concentrations and subject exposure patterns due to varying environmental conditions and subject behaviors. A technical and clinical validation study was conducted for the Allergen BioCube® using timothy grass to confirm uniform allergen concentration and clinically relevant subject symptom responses. Methods: Allergen concentrations were verified by laser particle counts. Subjects (N = 14) with positive skin test reactions and no symptoms at screening received four 3‐h timothy grass exposures in the BioCube over consecutive days. Subjects evaluated nasal itching, sneezing, rhinorrhea, and nasal congestion while in the BioCube; Total Nasal Symptom Score (TNSS) was computed. Peak Nasal Inspiratory Flow (PNIF), Peak Expiratory Flow Rate (PEFR), sIgE blood tests, and Nasal Inflammation Score (NIS) were assessed. A correlation analysis was conducted for mean sIgE, skin test, and TNSS. Results: ...

Description of the drug NyQuil Multi-Symptom. - patient information, description, dosage and directions. What is NyQuil Multi-Symptom!
Nasal airway obstruction, a well-known cause of patient discomfort, is one of the most common presenting complaints to the otolaryngologist. The different causes of nasal airway obstruction are very wide-ranging, spanning from congenital life threatening causes to acquired benign causes. Herein, we present a case of nasal obstruction caused by widening of the posterior septum. A 52-year-old gentleman presented to the rhinology clinic with complaint of chronic nasal congestion for 4 years. Trials of topical steroid sprays and nasal saline rinses had been unsuccessful in symptoma- tic resolution. On anterior rhinoscopy, the septum was noted to be straight anteriorly, but appeared to be deviated bilaterally, flaring into the nasopharynx and obstructing the airway. A CT scan was performed, which showed soft tissue enlargement on the posterior aspect of the septum. The patient was subsequently taken to the operating room for a posterior septectomy and inferior turbinectomy. He reported alleviation of
Forty-nine-years old male patient was admitted to our clinic with the complaint of nasal obstruction which is present for two years. The endoscopic examination and computerized paranasal sinus tomography revealed a polyploid mass which is originated from frontal sinus and lies through choana. Frontochoanal polyp is a rarely seen cause of nasal obstruction and it should be kept in mind in the evaluation of nasal obstruction. ...

Dr. Chiu responded: Mouth-breathing?. You likely have nasal obstruction as well and mouth-breathing while asleep can give you dry mouth. Consult your doctor to see if you have nasal problem and then observe whether reducing the nasal obstruction leads to improvement in your dry mouth. Dry mouth may also be caused by inflamed salivary glands presumably from an autoimmune process.
Submucous Resection (Submucosal Resection, SMR) of the nose is a surgical procedure during which the bony structures of the turbinate are partially removed from below the mucous membrane. It is usually intended to treat a deviated septum causing chronic nasal airway obstruction or chronic nosebleeds. Other reasons include nasal obstruction due to allergy or chronic sinus infections which have not responded to other treatments. SMR may be required for another nasal sinus surgery, when the deviated septum makes the access to other parts of the nose difficult. Sometimes it is performed as part of a cleft lip and palate repair ...

Objective: To determine the efficacy of inferior turbinate coblation for the treatment of nasal obstruction. Methods: Twenty patients awaiting submucosal diathermy to the inferior turbinates were recruited into the study. All underwent inferior turbinate coblation. Pre-operative and post-operative nasal function was investigated using posterior rhinomanometry and subjective symptom scales. Results: There was no significant increase in nasal conductance two weeks after inferior turbinate coblation (p = 0.159). However, three months after inferior turbinate coblation, median nasal conductance had increased significantly, from 203 to 324 cm3/s (p = 0.004). The median increase in nasal conductance was 73 cm3/s or 43.5 per cent. Post-operative visual analogue patients reported post-operative visual analogue scales scores for nasal obstruction decreased significantly, both two weeks (p = 0.006) and three months after inferior turbinate coblation (p = 0.001) when compared to Pre-operative values. ...

Eosinophilic angiocentric fibrosis (EAF) is a rare submucosal fibrosis. The patients experienced a nasal cavity mass, maxillary pain, or nasal obstructive symptoms of long duration. The process has been reported in the nasal septum, nasal cavity, and/or the maxillary sinus. It does not seem to have systemic associations with known diseases. OUTLINE. ...
Patients are typically apprised of the procedure and given perioperative instructions prior to the procedure. Informed consent is obtained for all patients and includes a discussion of the risks and benefits of procedure, including the rare risk of smell disturbance as well as the infrequent risks of postoperative crusting, bleeding and/or pain.. The coblation inferior turbinate reduction procedure is most commonly performed in the outpatient setting. In patients who have isolated turbinate hypertrophy as a cause of their nasal obstruction (or minimally impacting nasal septal deviation) we prefer to perform this procedure in the outpatient setting prior to any adjunctive sleep apnea procedures. This allows patients to maintain a patent nasal airway in the immediate postoperative period after other surgical procedures for OSA. However, the procedure can be performed simultaneously with nasal septoplasty and/or other adjunctive surgical procedures for OSA in the operating room setting provided the ...
Turbinate hypertrophy, inferior turbinate hypertrophy, and nasal turbinate hypertrophy are all descriptions of a similar condition where the tissue on the lateral (outside) walls of the nose are too large, causing nasal obstruction. Treatment may involve medications, allergy therapy and surgery.
Rhinomanometry is a form of manometry used in evaluation of the nasal cavity. Rhinomanometry is a standard diagnostic tool aiming to objectively evaluate the respiratory function of the nose. It measures pressure and flow during normal inspiration and expiration through the nose. Increased pressure during respiration is a result of increased resistance to airflow through nasal passages (nasal blockage), while increased flow, which means the speed of airstream, is related to better patency. Nasal obstruction leads to increased values of nasal resistance. Rhinomanometry may be used to measure only one nostril at a time (anterior rhinomanometry) or both nostrils simultaneously (posterior rhinomanometry). In anterior rhinomanometry, the patient is asked to blow his nose, sit in an upright position, and the pressure sensing tube is placed in one nostril while the contralateral nostril is left opened. The patient places a mask which is connected to the device tightly onto his face. Unilateral ...

The pathologic and immunohistochemistry features of the SGAT, as described by Dehner et al,1 were constant between cases in that report and similar to the case presented here. The histology of the SGAT suggests that of a normally developing salivary gland, with invaginating surface epithelium into mesenchymal tissue, suggesting that SGAT may be a hamartoma, rather than a neoplasm.1. Symptoms of nasal obstruction from SGAT are similar to nasal obstruction from other causes, and may include sleeping difficulty, feeding problems, episodes of respiratory distress and/or cyanosis, and nasal discharge. Neonates with complete nasal obstruction may have severe respiratory distress which is relieved by crying7; however, neonates with even partial nasal obstruction may be symptomatic.8 Retractions, stridor, a weak or breathy cry, or respiratory distress not relieved or worse with crying may indicate laryngotracheal abnormalities.. The cause of neonatal nasal obstruction may sometimes be revealed by ...
Dr. Dutton created the below infographic on everything you need to know about turbinate surgery. Turbinates are thin bones covered with thin tissue on the interior wall of the nose. Patients tend to undergo turbinate surgery because allergies or other nasal problems can cause the turbinates to swell and block airflow. Patients can experience improved breathing, reduced sinus-related snoring, less allergy issues, and less nasal congestion and drainage. For more information on turbinate surgery, or to schedule a consultation, please contact Dr. Dutton ...

Youre scheduled to have nasal surgery. The type of nasal surgery youre having is called turbinate surgery. Read on to learn more about what to expect during this surgery.
Nasal turbinate hypertrophy is often a result of chronic untreated allergies that lead to nasal congestion and symptoms of nasal airway obstruction.
Presented by Laura Cavallone, M.D., Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Missouri.. Dear SHANA members,. I would like to share with you the Extubation Algorithm that I have developed for major neck and upper airway surgery. I believe it offers a reasonable, pragmatic approach to this high-risk patient population, where early extubation failure may occur in nearly 11% of patients due to postoperative laryngo-pharyngeal edema and airway obstruction.. The Extubation Algorithm that is offered for your attention has served me well so far in my practice. Yet, it was developed 2 years ago, and will certainly benefit from your constructive feedback. The recently published Difficult Airway Society Guidelines for the management of tracheal extubation and ASA Practice Guidelines for Management of the Difficult Airway have both advanced our appreciation....

The investigator interviewed and examined participants to evaluate for nasal symptoms of: sneezing (daily frequency of attacks; score of 0=less than 1 time to 3=11+ times), rhinorrhea (daily frequency of blowing nose; score of 0=less than 1 time to 3=11+ times), nasal congestion (score of 0=less than nasal blockage without oral breathing to 3=severe nasal blockage causing prolonged oral breathing in a day), and nasal itching (score of 0=none to 3=nose is itchy, requiring frequent rubbing or blowing nose). The TNSS is the sum of the 4 nasal symptom sub-scores. TNSS scores could range from 0 to 12, with a higher score indicating more frequent/severe nasal symptoms ...
Turbinate Hypertrophy can be an irritating problem, leading to many different symptoms like difficulty in taking a breath, bleeding from the nose and experiencing recurrent infections.

With some of the other procedures, a portion of the turbinate is removed. It is important that enough of the turbinate be left intact so that the turbinate can warm and humidify the air that is flowing through the nose. A procedure called submucosal resection is a common technique used to treat enlarged turbinates. With this procedure, the lining of the turbinate is left intact, but the stuffing from the inside of the turbinate is removed. As the turbinate heals, it will be much smaller than before surgery. Sometimes, this resection can be performed with a device called a microdebrider. This device allows the surgeon to remove the stuffing through a small opening in the turbinate. In some instances, more of the turbinate is removed ...
The turbinates are structures made of thin bone covered by spongy mucous membranes in the nasal cavities. There are three on each side and are called the superior, middle and inferior turbinates. The turbinates have three main functions. They warm the air we breathe, humidify this air as it passes through the nose, and the mucous layer of the turbinates assist in filtering particles such as dust and pollen.. The turbinates, particularly the inferior, can block breathing when they are enlarged. The inferior turbinates are most commonly enlarged by swelling of the mucous membranes caused by allergies. This enlargement is due to increased blood flow into the tissue which then are congested. The middle turbinates can be enlarged if an air bubble develops inside the bone, a condition called concha bullosa. Concha bullosa of the middle turbinates may narrow the space through which the sinuses drain, the ostiomeatal complex, and hence can contribute to sinusitis.. Turbinate enlargement can be treated ...
Turbinate reduction or nasal turbinate hypertrophy reduction is a procedure used to decrease enlarged nasal turbinates (hypertrophic nasal turbinates).
Nasal obstruction can be monitored objectively by measurement of nasal airflow, as evaluated by nasal peak flow, or as airways resistance/conductance as evaluated by rhinomanometry. Peak flow can be measured during inspiration or expiration. Of these measurements, nasal inspiratory peak flow is the best validated technique for home monitoring in clinical trials. The equipment is portable, relatively inexpensive, and simple to use. One disadvantage, however, is that nasal inspiratory peak flow is influenced by lower airway as well as upper airway function. Rhinomanometry is a more sensitive technique that is specific for nasal measurements. The equipment, however, requires an operator, is more expensive, and is not portable. Thus, it is applicable only for clinic visit measures in clinical trials. Measurements require patient cooperation and coordination, and not all can achieve repeatable results. Thus, this objective measure is best suited to laboratory challenge studies involving smaller ...
For patients with swollen turbinates that disrupt their breathing, a turbinectomy can remove or reduce the turbinates to relieve sinus issues.
Septoplasty for a deviated septum is performed due to nasal congestion, nasal obstruction, snoring, breathing difficulty and nasal discharge.

The anatomical features, reflex systems, mucous transport, and circadian cycles of the nasal system will be discussed.. Learning Objectives: ...
Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) has been closely associated with undifferenciated nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) and T/ NK nasal non Hodgkin lymphoma. Nevertheless, the presence of EBV in non neoplastic lymphoid tissue of the nasopharynx has been rarely investigated. In a previous study by our group, using in situ hybridization to detect EBV in adenoids of children (2-13 years old) resected because of nasal obstruction due to hypertrophy, we found EBV genome in 72% of the cases. It was now intended to study the frequency of EBV expression in adenoids from children that underwent surgical removal, belonging to a lower age group (1-2 years old). It was also intended to establish which lymphoid subsets are involved in this infection. Adenoidal paraffin sections from 21 patients aged 1-2 years old (mean 1.6 years), 15 males and six females were submitted to double labeling: in situ hybridization with EBER 1/2 probes to detect EBV and immunohistochemistry to determine the lymphocyte typing of EBV-positive ...

IObjectives: To determine efficacy of the minimally invasive technique of radiofrequency ablation applied to the inferior concha in cases of inferior concha hypertrophy refractory to medical treatment. Methods: 40 patients that applied to our clinic with complaints of nasal obstruction later determined to have isolated inferior concha hypertrophy were included in the study. Patients age ranged from 19 to 55, with the mean being 26.2. Patients were treated with bipolar radiofrequency inferior concha ablation under local anesthesia. Patients undertook anterior rhinomanometry tests prior to surgery and again 6 weeks postoperative to achieve objective measurement. Patients were also analyzed using a visual analog scale (VAS) before and 6 weeks after surgery. All data was statistically analyzed and the data was used to assess the effect of radiofrequency application to the inferior concha. Results: Total resistance of both nasal cavities was measured preoperatively and 6 weeks after surgery combined ...
Symptoms can vary with the season and type of allergen and include sneezing, runny nose, nasal congestion, and itchy eyes and nose. A year-long exposure usually produces nasal congestion (chronic stuffy nose).. In children, allergen exposure and subsequent inflammation in the upper respiratory system cause nasal obstruction. This obstruction becomes worse with the gradual enlargement of the adenoid tissue and the tonsils inherent with age. Consequently, the young patient may have mouth-breathing, snoring, and sleep-disordered breathing such as obstructive sleep apnea. Sleep problems such as insomnia, bed-wetting, and sleepwalking may accompany these symptoms along with behavioral changes including short attention span, irritability, poor school performance, and excessive daytime sleepiness.. In these patients, upper respiratory infections such as colds and ear infections are more frequent and last longer. A childs symptoms after exposure to pollutants such as tobacco smoke are usually amplified ...
