Rhinomanometry is a test of nasal function that measures air pressure and the rate of airflow in the nasal airway during respiration. These findings are used to calculate nasal airway resistance. Rhinomanometry is intended to be an objective quantification of nasal airway patency.
Acoustic rhinometry is a technique intended for assessment of the geometry of the nasal cavity and nasopharynx and for evaluating nasal obstruction. The technique is based on an analysis of sound waves reflected from the nasal cavities.
The techniques are proposed for use in comparing decongestive action of antihistamines and corticosteroids and for assessment of the patient prior to nasal surgery. It is also use in patient with obstructive sleep apnea and other treatment in the nose. It is specially usefull in children to evaluate if they have nasal obstruction.
