Nasal mucosal blood flow at rest and during exercise.
Nasal airway resistance increases at rest in the supine position and decreases during exercise due to changes of the thickness of the nasal mucosa regulated by the capacitance vessels. The resistanceExpand

Paranasal Sinus Ventilation in Healthy Subjects and in Patients with Sinus Disease Evaluated with the 133-Xenon Washout Technique
Ventilation of the paranasal sinuses is of great importance in sinus pathophysiology. Therefore, methods of measuring sinus ventilation are important for the evaluation of patients with sinusExpand

Ventilation of the paranasal sinuses studied with dynamic emission computer tomography
This investigation's aim was to study a noninvasive method for determining the ventilation of the nasal sinuses. For this purpose, different insufflation techniques using xenon 133 were tried, alongExpand

Nasal mucosal congestion during the menstrual cycle.
A relationship between the reactivity of the nasal mucosa and changes in female sex hormones have been debated for a long time, although no evidence has been presented to prove or disprove thisExpand

Washout of 133-Xenon as an Objective Assessment of Paranasal Sinus Ventilation in Endoscopic Sinus Surgery
Endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS) is today a common method for the treatment of chronic rhinosinusitis. Assessment of the results has been based mainly upon subjective evaluation, and only a few reportsExpand

Tympanometry before and during nitrous oxide anesthesia with middle ear effusion.
During nitrous oxide anesthesia the nitrous oxide passes from blood to the normal middle ear space. Middle ear pressures before and during anesthesia in ears of pediatric patients with secretoryExpand

Factors influencing 133-xenon washout in a nose-sinus model.
The 133-xenon washout technique is a non-invasive method for the evaluation of ventilation of the paranasal sinuses. The half-time of 133-xenon washout (T(1/2)) is considered to reflect sinus ostialExpand

Effects of Oxymetazoline on the Ventilation of Paranasal Sinuses in Healthy Subjects
Background Impairment of sinus ostial function is considered an important factor in the pathophysiology of sinus disease. The use of the decongestants such as α2-agonists is thought to improve sinusExpand
