Rhinomanometry and Rhinometry Together
Rhinometers and Rhinomanometers allow non-invasive nasal examination in adults and children using a sound pulse technique and flow/pressure measurements, with analysis provided by accompanying software. NARIS provides a thorough examination of nasal cavity form and function.
- Examination of nasal structure (Rhinometer)
- Examination of nasal function (Rhinomanometer)
- Pre/post comparisons and percentage change calculations
- Complies with international measurement and safety standards
Form and Function
The Rhinometer measures the echo location boundary of the nasal cavity from the nasal valve to the back of the sinuses via reflections of the sound pulse produced by changes in the cross sectional area within the nose. This is critical to the dentist who needs to know if nasal obstruction will impede the success of OSA treatments. Seeing constrictions due to nasal valve collapse, inflamed turbinants, deviated septums, and allergies will allow the dentist to properly cross refer patients to ENT and allergists for maximum treatment success.
The Rhinomanometer measures nasal airway resistance by recording the volume and pressure of the air moving through the anterior or posterior portions of the nasal cavity and sinuses.
Rhinomanometry gives you a clear look at what is most important about the function of the nasal airway, which is simply how easily can your patient breathe through their nose.
