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.

1. The use of a rhinomanometer.
2. The measurement of nasal air flow and pressures.

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.

Complementary instrumental exams, such as nasometry, nasoendoscopy, rhinomanometry, acoustic rhinometry, videofluoroscopy, and electromyography, were identified in this literature review.
First of all, we did not perform rhinomanometry or acoustic rhinometry to our patients.
The patency of the nasal airway was evaluated objectively using acoustic rhinometry and anterior rhinomanometry (RhinoScan/Rhinometrics[R] SRE2000, Denmark and RhinoStream v.2.1, RhinoMetrics[R] SRE2000, Denmark).

Recently, rhinomanometry has been introduced to evaluate the patency of nostrils [13-15].
Studies evaluating the surgical result after septoplasty using objective methods such as rhinomanometry or acoustic rhinometry predominantly report a positive effect on nasal air flow and patency [1].
Rhinomanometry measures the nasal patency utilizing the physics of airflow.
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.
The patient centeredness of this study, looking specifically at nasal symptoms, meant that objective tests of nasal obstruction were not performed (i.e., rhinomanometry and/or acoustic rhinometry).
Evaluation of nasal air flow was done by rhinomanometry, x-ray nose and PNS, CT scan of nose and PNS and nasal endoscopy.

Nasal obstruction can be evaluated by subjective (VAS, NOSE) or objective (acustic rhinometry, rhinomanometry) means while findings of nasal examination can only be quantified by subjective scales like DIP scoring.
