OBJECTIVES Cyclic congestion and decongestion in the two nasal cavities is seen in connection with the respiratory function of the nose. The turbulent behavior of nasal airflow is a prerequisite for adequate contact of inspired air particles with the mucosa. The aim of this study was to gain insight into this turbulent behavior of nasal airflow during the nasal cycle. METHODS The nasal cycle in 10 healthy human subjects was investigated using endoscopic imaging, rhinoresistometry, and… CONTINUE READING
