rhinomanometry

 [ri″no-mah-nom´ĕ-tre]
measurement of the airflow and pressure within the nose during respiration; nasal resistance or obstruction can be calculated from the figures obtained.

rhinomanometry

ENT A technique for evaluating nasal patency or obstruction, and airflow by simultaneously measuring transnasal pressure and airway resistance, and pressure-flow characteristics. Types–Anterior A pressure tap is inserted into a sealed nostril. Posterior A face mask is combined with a pressure tap in the oral cavity or oropharynx; used to measure net bilateral airflow resistance.  Unilateral posterior One nostril is taped during the procedure. Cf Acoustic rhino(mano)metry, Nasal airway resistance.

These patients were preoperatively evaluated with radiographic and endoscopic imaging; preoperative nasal resistance and nasal airway cross-sectional area values were measured and recorded with acoustic rhinometry and rhinomanometry devices.
Evaluation of nasal air flow was done by rhinomanometry, x-ray nose and PNS, CT scan of nose and PNS and nasal endoscopy.
In addition to examination by an orthodontist, an otolaryngologist examined the patients, who were evaluated by tympanometry tests and rhinomanometry (a dynamic test that calculates flow, pressure and nasal resistance).
Liu et al16 used visual analogue scale, anterior rhinomanometry and saccharin test as the pre and post-operative assessment in order to obtain more objective results.
