Nasal patency was evaluated using an acoustic rhinometer (Eccovision; Hood Laboratories, Pembroke, MA), to determine the nasal volume as well as the cross-sectional area for the left and right nasal cavity of each participant, using methods for calibration and measurement previously described (Opiekun et al.
The Rhinometer is an upper airway imaging system providing quantitative information on nasal obstruction, site of obstruction, and degree of obstruction.
The rhinometer is a painless way to help us determine more quickly and accurately than before the degree and cause of nasal obstruction," explains Richard Mabry, a professor of otorhinolaryngology who specializes in treatment of the nose and allergies.
Mabry says using the rhinometer may eliminate that need because it documents the degree and source of obstruction.

The rhinometer was properly calibrated according to the manufacturer's guidelines.
12] The correct size of the rhinometer nose tip was determined by holding the tip to the nostril and making sure that the tip formed a seal with the nostril without distorting the shape of the nasal cavity.
17] These differences can occur because of nasal mucosal variations over time, [14] the subject's posture, [14] or a poor positioning a of the acoustic rhinometer so that it distorts the dimensions of the nasal cavity or fails to form a good seal with the nostril.
This craniostat allowed us to exactly position each patient's head in relation to the rhinometer.
