(16) on a single patient and a sample of healthy participants consisting of four equally sized diagnosis subgroups: nasal polyposis (NP), postinfectious (PI) olfaction deficiency, posttraumatic olfaction decrement, and normosmia. The ROT was adequately capable of appealing the significantly higher retronasal olfaction scores in the NP group.
(16) normosmia (n=120), hyposmia (n=37), and anosmia (n=73) Konstantinidis 35 children with adenoid et al.
(1) The four-minute "Sniffin Sticks" test is a forced choice 12-item test, where a score <7 is defined as "anosmia," >10 as "normosmia
," and score between 7 and 10 as "hyposmia" in the normative data .
Ao Anal do preenchimento desse questionario ha uma pontuacao obtida que vai de 0 (pior) a 40 (melhor), que se traduz por uma classificacao da funcao olfatoria em normosmia
, microsmia (leve, moderada e severa) e anosmia .
A TDI value of less than 16 means anosmia, up to 30 points hyposmia, and above 30 points normosmia
. Statistical analysis was performed with GraphPad Prism 4.01 (San Diego, USA).
(16) In general, a score of 15 or less indicates anosmia, a score of 15.5 to 30 indicates hyposmia, and a score of 30.5 or higher indicates normosmia
. A change of at least 6 points in a particular TDI score is accepted as evidence of subjective clinical improvement or deterioration of the olfactory function of a given patient.
Disregarding sex-related differences, the minimal (TDI) score (at the 10th percentile) for normosmia
is 24.9/48 for people aged 15 or younger, 30.3/48 for people aged 16-35, 27.3/48 for people aged 36-55, and 19.6/48 for people aged 55 or older (Hummel et al., 2007).
Generally, patients older than 50 years (as were all of our patients) can be classified thusly on the basis of their Sniffin' Sticks score: 0 to 8 points, anosmia; 9 to 11, hyposmia; 12 to 16, normosmia
. (7) Patients were also asked to subjectively rate their sense of smell and the practicability of using the larynx bypass on a scale of 1 (very poor) to 10 (very good).
