Analyzers, Physiologic, Respiratory Function Mechanics, Adult, Nasal Resistance
Definition : Adult respiratory function mechanics analyzers designed to measure airway volume and airflow through the nasal passages, including the partition of airflow between the two nasal passages. These analyzers typically consist of a measuring unit and appropriate tubes and nasal adapters that permit the independent measure of the volume of air breathed into each side of the nose; usually the ratio of the two volumes is calculated as a measure of the difference between the air passage (i.e., a nasal partitioning ratio [NPR]). Adult nasal respiratory mechanics analyzers are intended to assess nasal septum deviation and/or to evaluate the upper airway respiratory cycle.
