  • The nose and pharynx begin the upper airway system and represent a continuum. This is the biologic basis for the mutual influences of rhinitis and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Sleep-disordered breathing has a large differential diagnosis that includes snoring, upper airway resistance syndrome, and severe OSA. Nasal obstruction is an independent risk factor for OSA, but there is no correlation of daytime nasal resistance with the severity of OSA. However, nasal resistance was an independent… CONTINUE READING
