Ninety-five patients with documented perennial allergic rhinitis have been treated with local hyperthermia of the nasal passages in a randomized double-blind trial. The treatment consisted of one series of three 30-min insufflations of humidified air at 43 degrees C at a 2-hr interval. In the active treatment group, 75% (P less than 0.00003) and 68% (P less(More)
Animal senses cover a broad range of signal types and signal bandwidths and have inspired various sensors and bioinstrumentation devices for biological and medical applications. Insects, such as desert ants and honeybees, for example, utilize polarized skylight pattern-based information in their navigation activities. They reliably return to their nests and(More)
Local hyperthermia (43 degrees C) to the upper respiratory passages, without supplementary drugs, relieves symptoms of perennial allergic rhinitis.
