Intersession Repeatability of Acoustic Rhinometry Measurements in Healthy Volunteers

Abstract Objectives Acoustic rhinometry is a rapid, reliable and non-invasive technique for the evaluation of conditions associated with impaired nasal patency. This study aimed to examine the intersession repeatability of acoustic rhinometry measurements of unilateral and combined nasal parameters in a group of healthy volunteers. Methods Twenty healthy volunteers were studied. In each subject, acoustic…

Acoustic rhinometry and video endoscopic scoring to evaluate postoperative outcomes in endonasal spreader graft surgery with septoplasty and turbinoplasty for nasal valve collapse

  Abstract Background Nasal obstruction is a common complaint seen by otolaryngologists. The internal nasal valve (INV) is typically the narrowest portion of the nasal cavity, and if this area collapses on inspiration the patient experiences significant symptoms of nasal obstruction. The nasal obstruction is further compounded if the INV is narrower than normal. Previous…

Comparison of Anatomic, Physiologic, and Subjective Measures of the Nasal Airway

Sleep Apnea Research Group Principal Investigator: Derek J. Lam, MD Co-Principal Investigator: Edward M. Weaver, MD, MPH Co-Investigators: Kathryn T. James, PA, MPH American Journal of Rhinology (in press) Background – Studies comparing different categories of nasal measures have reported inconsistent results. We sought to compare validated measures of the nasal airway: anatomic (acoustic rhinometry),…

Confirming Nasal Airway Patency Observed on Panoramic and Posterior-Anterior Cephalometric Radiographs Using an Acoustic Rhinometer and ImageJ

Tufts University–Pediatric Dentistry Authors: Jorge Landa, Alfred Rich, and Matthew Finkelman Rationale: “Currently, dentists and orthodontists rely on subjective visual assessment of the airway extraorally, and by analyzing panoramic radiographs and noting apparent structural and anatomical abnormalities. Once again this current modality of analysis lacks a standardized norm and is subject to human error and…

Abnormalities on Nasal Exam Associated with Decreased CPAP Tolerance and Use

Sleep Apnea Research Group Principal Investigators: N. Husen, MD; E.M. Weaver, MD Abstract: “Poor tolerance and inadequate use are the greatest limitations to CPAP therapy for sleep apnea. This retrospective cohort study evaluated 306 patients who were prescribed CPAP therapy for sleep apnea at the University of Washington’s Sleep Disorders Center during the period January…

Acoustic Rhinometry Reliability

Sleep Apnea Research Group Principal Investigator: Edward M. Weaver, MD, MPH Co-Investigators: Judy Stenstrom LPN, BA This study confirms the inter-rater and test-retest reliabilities of minimum cross-sectional area measurements of the nasal airway using acoustic rhinometry. Methods – Two separate examiners measured minimum cross-sectional area with acoustic rhinometry on 25 normal volunteers on three consecutive…

Confirming Nasal Airway Patency Observed on Panoramic and Posterior-Anterior Cephalometric Radiographs Using an Acoustic Rhinometer

(Accepted for Publication, 11/23/2009) Authors: Jorge Landa, Alfred Rich, and Matthew Finkelman Conclusion: “A very strong correlation was found between the anterior nasal cross-sectional area calculated from the radiographs, and the anterior nasal cross-sectional area and nasal volume from the rhinometer. “The acoustic rhinometer can be a very instrumental and reliable adjunct during the course…

Nasal Cavity Geometry of Healthy Adults Assessed Using Acoustic Rhinometry

Brazilian Journal of Otorhinolaryngology, 2008 Authors: A. de Oliveira Camargo Gomes, A. C. Martins Sampaio-Teixeira, S. H. Kiemle Trinadade, I. E. Kiemle Trinadade Conclusion: “This study used acoustic rhinometry to determine the reference values for nasal cross-sectional areas to be used, for comparison purposes, in the analysis of adults with functional and/or anatomical nasal obstruction.…

Adherence to Continuous Positive Airway Pressure Therapy

The Proceedings of the American Thoracic Society , 2008 Authors: Terri E. Weaver and Ronald R. Grunstein Relevance: “There is emerging evidence that increased nasal resistance affects CPAP use and initial acceptance of this treatment. Using acoustic rhinometry to measure the internal dimensions of the airway, those patients with smaller nasal cross-sectional area and reduced…
