Disease relevance of Rhinometry, Acoustic


High impact information on Rhinometry, Acoustic

  • Montelukast did not significantly affect upper respiratory responses, as measured by means of symptom scores (P =.43) and changes in acoustic rhinometry (P =.078) [4].
  • Subjects were then challenged with antigen or diluent (control), and their responses were monitored by using acoustic rhinometry [5].
  • Nasal airway changes assessed by acoustic rhinometry and mediator release during immediate and late reactions to allergen challenge [6].
  • Effects measurements included assessment of bronchial reactivity, measurement of specific airway conductance, spirometry, acoustic rhinometry, nasal lavage, tear-fluid cytology, a CO2 eye-provocation test, evaluation of eye redness, and subjective sensations [7].
  • Serum octreotide and GH data were subjected to pharmacokinetic analyses, and local nasal effects were evaluated by acoustic rhinometry [8].

Chemical compound and disease context of Rhinometry, Acoustic


Anatomical context of Rhinometry, Acoustic


Associations of Rhinometry, Acoustic with chemical compounds

  • Histamine, 40-800 microg, intranasally into each nostril, induced significant blockage of the nasal airway in normal human subjects, as measured by acoustic rhinometry [16].
  • RESULTS: Acoustic rhinometry revealed a significant difference in favour of steroid treatment (P < 0.05) comparing nasal volumes before and during season [17].
  • Nasal mucosal swelling was assessed with acoustic rhinometry before and after nasal decongestion with oxymetazoline and was analysed for the crosssectional area (4cm from the nostril) and the volume between 3.3 and 4cm from the nostril [18].
  • OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the reproducibility of PNIF and acoustic rhinometry following nasal lysine-aspirin challenge in AIA [19].
  • 2. Twenty normal healthy volunteers underwent nasal challenge with either histamine or bradykinin, 100 micrograms to 1000 micrograms, and responses were assessed by acoustic rhinometry [20].

Gene context of Rhinometry, Acoustic

  • Furthermore, acoustic rhinometry and s-ECP reflect the impact of nasal steroid therapy on seasonal allergic rhinitis [17].
  • ETS-S and ETS-NS subjects differed in correlations between bilateral subjective and objective measures: ETS-S subjects showed significant correlation between baseline congestion and NAR; in contrast, ETS-NS subjects showed significant correlation between baseline congestion and acoustic rhinometry [21].
  • These findings correlate with a significant increase in cross-sectional diameter at the Isthmus nasi revealed by acoustic rhinometry 3 months postoperatively [22].
  • Most psychophysical tests (e.g., Continuous Performance Test) turned out to be suitable, but physiological tests were either heavily disturbed by technical problems (e.g., portable electrogastrography), or biased by application techniques (e.g., acoustic rhinometry), or were simply too time-consuming (e.g., PC-based voice analysis) [23].
