rhinomanometry

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.

It is difficult to assess the degree of obstruction or to quantify the nasal discharge; the assessment is completely subjective unless a nasal peak flow meter is used or rhinomanometry is performed.
Second, we used acoustic rhinometry, while most other studies relied on anterior rhinoscopy or rhinomanometry, which are inferior methods of making the evaluations in question.
