We have tested the influence of face-mask style and volume on rhinomanometric measurements. Using an artificial head-and-piston pump to standardize the test conditions, four types of face masks (volumes varying from 120 to 200 ml) have been tested in a series of 20 measurements per mask. No statistical difference could be found between the series using a(More)
