THE NOSE KNOWS: NASAL FUNCTION AND RESISTANCE
Karen Davidson, DHA, MSA, MEd., MSN, RN
August 19, 2021 @ 9:00 pm - 10:00 pm EDT
This webinar will introduce the audience to nasal function and resistance, the importance of the nose as its own “organ”, why it is relevant in many aspects of medicine, the measurement technique of nasal function, treatment options for nasal resistance, and how to collaborate among the many medical professionals when treating nasal resistance. The importance of understanding nasal function is based on the study of nasal resistance to airflow. Over the years, the importance of nasal resistance and function has been researched but not brought to the forefront until the past few years, especially with the association of olfactory disfunction. Also, it is an important consideration in the times of COVID-19.
