Three techniques for studying nasal mucociliary clearance have been compared in 20 normal subjects, aged 19 to 26. Three different tracers used were deposited on the septum or the nasal floor. The transport rate of a 250 micron anion resin particle tagged with 99mTc was measured over a distance of 3.5 cm. This method was used as reference. The transport time of saccharin was measured when the subjects tasted its sweetness on swallowing. The transport time of 600 micron aluminium discs was… CONTINUE READING
