• sinusitis
  • When their mucous membranes swell from allergies, the common cold, infection or other causes, the narrow sinus openings become blocked, the pressure inside them drops, and they can fill with fluid, which easily leads to bacterial infection (called sinusitis, or rhinosinusitis if the nasal tissues are also affected). (alphasurg.com)
  • In the acute state, decongestants, mucolytics and antibiotics are the main line treatments, while the treatment of chronic sinusitis is directed towards controlling the inciting factor that causes obstruction of sinuses and chronic inflammation. (alphasurg.com)
  • mucosa
  • Therefore, after cessation of prolonged use, there will be inadequate sympathetic vasoconstriction in the nasal mucosa, and domination of parasympathetic activity can result in increased secretions and nasal edema. (wikipedia.org)
  • It is also used in challenge tests with allergen when nasal patency is measured before and after application of allergen onto the nasal mucosa. (wikipedia.org)
  • Generally, one or more turbinates may be reduced or absent when viewed in medical imaging or via endoscope with no sign of physical obstruction, the mucosa will be dry and pale, and there may be signs of secondary infection. (wikipedia.org)
  • sprays
  • Treatment is ideally surgical, though some medications such as steroid, atrovent, or antihistamine nasal sprays may be helpful. (daganmd.com)
  • Rhinitis medicamentosa is possible if one has been using nasal decongestant sprays frequently. (daganmd.com)
  • Nasal obstruction due to allergies or structural abnormalities is generally first treated with nasal steroid sprays. (houstonadvancedsinus.com)
  • Patients often try increasing both the dose and the frequency of nasal sprays upon the onset of RM, worsening the condition. (wikipedia.org)
  • United States Patent Number 5,988,870 was issued for a method and apparatus used to facilitate the precise titration and gradual withdrawal of decongestant nasal sprays containing addictive compounds. (wikipedia.org)
  • A study has shown that the anti-infective agent benzalkonium chloride, which is frequently added to topical nasal sprays as a preservative, aggravates the condition by further increasing the rebound swelling. (wikipedia.org)
  • To avoid such damage and the subsequent risk of loss of smell, vasoconstricting nasal sprays should be used only when absolutely necessary and then for only a short amount of time. (wikipedia.org)
  • mucosal
  • The list of possible causes for nasal obstruction in the neonatal period is a long one, the most common being nasal mucosal oedema, infectious causes such as syphilis (rare nowadays), bony abnormalities such as pyriform aperture stenosis, choanal atresia, cystic lesions such as a dacrocystocele or Rathke's pouch cyst, Thornwaldt cyst, and other developmental midline nasal lesions such as a meningo-encephalocele or glioma. (scielo.org.za)
  • Rhinomanometry can be used to test nasal patency in basal conditions in order to differentiate between anatomical and mucosal abnormalities by performing a test with a decongestant. (wikipedia.org)
  • Hyam's Histopathological Grades for Esthesioneuroblastoma Esthesioneuroblastoma can resemble small blue cell tumors like squamous cell carcinoma, sinonasal undifferentiated carcinoma, extranodal NK/T cell lymphoma, nasal type, rhabdomyosarcoma, Ewing/PNET, mucosal malignant melanoma and neuroendocrine carcinomas (NEC) that occur in the intranasal tract. (wikipedia.org)
  • post-nasa
  • I could not sleep at night due to not being able to breath properly and when I did fall asleep I would wake up because of my extensive post nasal drip gagging me. (abodybeautiful.com)
  • obligate nasal breathers
  • While this ability is a common trait of obligate nasal breathers, clearly this definition does not require that nasal breathing in any way be obligatory to the animal. (wikipedia.org)
  • Even in obligate nasal breathers such as horses, rabbits, and rodents, there is a potentially patent path for air to travel from the mouth to the lungs which can be used for endotracheal intubation. (wikipedia.org)
  • Horses are also considered obligate nasal breathers. (wikipedia.org)
  • Rabbits and rodents are also obligate nasal breathers. (wikipedia.org)
  • normal nasal
  • Some sources use the term "mouth breathing habit" but this incorrectly implies that the individual is fully capable of normal nasal breathing, and is breathing through their mouth out of preference. (wikipedia.org)
  • patients
  • Aim of this Stage is to investigate the effects of nasal High Flow (NHF) therapy in patients in progressed stages of COPD, by measuring physiologic parameters like tidal volume, breathing frequency and expiratory PCO2 concentration. (centerwatch.com)
  • RESULTS: Thirty-seven patients (92.5%) showed poorer oxygen saturation after nasal occlusion. (biomedsearch.com)
  • This must be taken into account in the postoperative nasal packing of patients with respiratory failure, obesity, or SDB. (biomedsearch.com)
  • D allas Sinus Center provides treatment options for patients dealing with symptomatic nasal obstruction. (dallassinuscenter.com)
  • Dr. Kuperan is one of the few fellowship certified Rhinologists in all of Texas with specialized expertise, experience, and skills in treating patients with nasal obstruction. (houstonadvancedsinus.com)
  • This article suggests that nasal obstruction can indirectly have a positive effect on sleep bruxism as it causes patients to mouth breathe, thus relaxing the jaw. (az-tmj.com)
  • Patients with nasopharyngeal angiofibroma usually present with one-sided nasal obstruction and recurrent bleeding. (wikipedia.org)
  • Patients' complaints of nasal obstruction are not always confirmed by these objective measurements. (wikipedia.org)
  • diagnosis
  • Nasal obstruction could help with bruxism although a proper diagnosis from an orofacial pain management physician and an oral appliance for treatment is highly recommended. (az-tmj.com)
  • posterior
  • Examination in theatre revealed a very narrow right nasal passage, and it was impossible to pass the nasal endoscope into the posterior choana. (scielo.org.za)
