Overnight Documentation of Respiratory Sounds in Patients with Chronic Sinusitis.
Summary of "Overnight Documentation of Respiratory Sounds in Patients with Chronic Sinusitis."
: Nocturnal worsening of respiration in patients with chronic sinusitis is most likely induced by creeping of mucus from the parasinuses down to the pharynx. The aim of this study was to document respiratory symptoms such as deglutition, wheezing and cough in patients with chronic sinusitis using long-term recording of respiratory sounds. PATIENTS AND
: According to the CORSA (computerized respiratory sound analysis) criteria, long-term recording of respiratory sounds was performed in 20 patients with chronic sinusitis.
: Wheezing was detected in 30%, (excessive) cough was found in 40%. Deglutition was measured with a frequency of ten per hour.
: Long-term recording of respiratory sounds is a practical and noninvasive method for the documentation of clinical symptoms like wheezing, coughing and deglutition during sleep.

Ciliary Motility Disorders
Conditions caused by abnormal CILIA movement in the body, usually causing KARTAGENER SYNDROME, chronic respiratory disorders, chronic SINUSITIS, and chronic OTITIS. Abnormal ciliary beating is likely due to defects in any of the 200 plus ciliary proteins, such as missing motor enzyme DYNEIN arms.
Inflammation of the NASAL MUCOSA in the SPHENOID SINUS. Isolated sphenoid sinusitis is uncommon. It usually occurs in conjunction with other paranasal sinusitis.
Noises, normal and abnormal, heard on auscultation over any part of the RESPIRATORY TRACT.
Inflammation of the NASAL MUCOSA in the ETHMOID SINUS. It may present itself as an acute (infectious) or chronic (allergic) condition.
Respiratory retention of carbon dioxide. It may be chronic or acute.
Cough can be a biomarker in case of respiratory diseases. By monitoring and analyzing cough sounds through automatic devices, the farmer can obtain an early warning about a developing outbreak of resp...
