This project develops and utilizes a system that replicates nasal breathing in order to visually document flow distributions and patterns under a wide range of breathing conditions. It is our hope that this approach and data will prove helpful in future medical research of nasal delivery systems. Our results show that there is a distinct change in flow pattern as pressure increases. This study also demonstrates that a turbinectomy also will change flow patterns and should be accounted for when designing nasal delivery systems.
