Pressure–flow relationships measured in human plastinated specimen of both nasal cavities and maxillary sinuses were compared to those obtained by numerical airflow simulations in a numerical three-dimensional reconstruction issued from CT scans of the plastinated specimen. For experiments, flow rates up to 1500 ml/s were tested using three different gases: HeO2, Air, and SF6. Numerical inspiratory airflow simulations were performed for flow rates up to 353 ml/s in both the nostrils using a… CONTINUE READING
