Removing nasal valve obstruction in peak nasal inspiratory flow measurement
Martyn L. Barnes, MBBS Brian J. Lipworth, MD
Asthma and Allergy Research Group, Department of Medicine and Therapeutics, Ninewells Hospital and Perth Royal Infirmary, University of Dundee, Dundee, Scotland.
Peak nasal inspiratory flow (PNIF) measurements are used to evaluate nasal obstruction and as a surrogate for disease activity in allergic rhinitis and other nasal complaints. This measurement can give erroneous results when forced inspiration leads to nasal valve collapse.
To determine the effects of 2 different nasal stents (Sinus Cones and Nozovent) on valve collapse and repeatability of PNIF measurements.
Repeated measurements of PNIF were obtained in 74 individuals with and without 2 different nasal stents: Sinus Cones and Nozovent.
The mean (95% confidence interval) improvement in PNIF was 1.7 L/min (−2.4 to 5.8 L/min; P = .42) with Nozovents and 25.4 L/min (11.4 to 39.4 L/min; P = .001) with Sinus Cones. The PNIF coefficient of variation for repeatability was 11.6% without stents, 16.0% using Nozovents, and 10.4% using Sinus Cones.
Sinus Cones, but not Nozovents, significantly improved PNIF. Repeatability of PNIF measurements was worse with Nozovents and only marginally improved with Sinus Cones.
Small, Medium, Large
Follow our patented sizing guide to determine your most suitable size.
Place your thumb on a ruler, fingerprint side down with the left edge of the thumb on the beginning of the ruler or 1 inch mark. (In the image shown above, the left side of the thumb is placed flush with the 1 inch mark on the ruler.)
Measure the widest part of the thumb as indicated by the black arrows above. (In the image above, the right side of the thumb measures about 7/8″, or less than one inch.)
Use this gauge to select your size. (In the image above, based on a measure of 7/8″ and referencing the chart below, this thumb measures to a medium size.)
If your thumb measures:
3/4″ (.75 of an inch) or less, select the size small.
If your thumb measures more than 3/4″ to 1″ (.75 of an inch to one inch), select the size medium.
If your thumb measures more than 1″ (more than one inch), select the size large.
If you are right on the line between two sizes, we suggest ordering both sizes, trying them and then returning the ones that are not the correct size. Please see our guarantee for details***.
PLEASE NOTE: sometimes nasal airways are not the same size and two sizes are necessary. So be sure to try each size in each airway.
CUSTOMIZING FIT: MAX-AIR NOSE CONES are made connected to one another. To achieve just the right fit and comfort, they may be separated and worn individually.
Custom Sizing for Deviated Septum and Nasal Airway Collapse
Mixing two different sizes may be needed for deviated septum or nasal valve collapse, if one nasal airway or nostril is smaller or narrower than the other.
If this is your situation, you will find it more suitable to use two different sizes Cones to treat this problem. Simply determine the size that you measure to normally, as indicated above, and then select that size for your larger nostril, and the next smaller size for your other smaller or narrower nostril.
Purchase the two sizes, and use one size in one nostril and the other size in the other nostril. Once again, swivel for your most comfortable fit and best angle to maximize flow volume.
How to Choose Your Most Suitable Squeezieness-Rating: Soft, Softer, or Softest
Every person is slightly different when it involves the softness that they prefer.
The new soft, Max-Air Nose Cones Performance are designed to stay put so that you don’t have to; as such their fit and feel is a little more dynamic to insure a secure fit no matter how you plan to wear them.
For some individuals this is perfect for running faster than a speeding bullet or leaping tall buildings in a single bound; however it is too dynamic a feel for their sleep, where they prefer the Sinus Cones or regular Max-Air Nose Cones. That said for other individuals the new, soft Max-Air Nose Cones Performance are just right for day and sleep wear.
Generally the softest, clear, Max-Air Nose Cones are preferred, especially for deviated septum, as combination therapy for mild sleep apnea, to stop snoring and night time dry mouth.
The original, softer, white Sinus Cones may be best for those nights when nasal allergy, sinus or cold congestion is severe and extra nasal airway support is necessary, when snoring is loud and pervasive, or when nasal obstruction from a collapsed side-wall is present.
If you are undecided, why not order both. Try them out, decide which is more suitable for your situation, and return the other set for a free exchange.
