Measurement of Age and Sex Related Changes in Nasal Tip Support Using Digital Newton Meter

2019-07-18 10:31:17 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Background:

It is predicted that the nasal tip support will decrease with aging due to weakening of cartilage and connective tissues. However, there is no consensus on the age at which this change began. It is quite difficult to evaluate the nasal tip support, while the ideal nasal tip support pressure is also not known. The aim of this study is to determine the nasal tip support pressure alterations in various age groups, by measuring nasal tip support with a Newton meter, according to age and gender.

Methods:

This prospective clinical study was conducted between January 2019 and April 2019 at a tertiary health facility. Nasal tip resistances in 4 different age groups, as 20-29, 30-39, 40-64 and 65 years and older, were measured with a digital Newton meter. A total number of 159 patients with a minimum of 36 patients in each age group were included in the study. Nasal tip resistance measurements were compared among nasal tip displacement distances of 2mm, 3mm and 4mm, according to age groups and gender.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Diagnostic measurement of the nose and its cavity through acoustic reflections. Used to measure nasal anatomical landmarks, nasal septal deviation, and nasal airway changes in response to allergen provocation tests (NASAL PROVOCATION TESTS).

Fluid obtained by irrigation or washout of the nasal cavity and NASAL MUCOSA. The resulting fluid is used in cytologic and immunologic assays of the nasal mucosa such as with the NASAL PROVOCATION TEST in the diagnosis of nasal hypersensitivity.

The proximal portion of the respiratory passages on either side of the NASAL SEPTUM. Nasal cavities, extending from the nares to the NASOPHARYNX, are lined with ciliated NASAL MUCOSA.

Application of allergens to the nasal mucosa. Interpretation includes observation of nasal symptoms, rhinoscopy, and rhinomanometry. Nasal provocation tests are used in the diagnosis of nasal hypersensitivity, including RHINITIS, ALLERGIC, SEASONAL.

The partition separating the two NASAL CAVITIES in the midplane. It is formed by the SEPTAL NASAL CARTILAGE, parts of skull bones (ETHMOID BONE; VOMER), and membranous parts.
