AbstractAnterior rhinomanometry is the current gold standard for the objective assessment of nasal breathing by determining the nasal resistance. However, computational fluid dynamics would allow spatially and temporally well- resolved investigation of additional flow parameters. In this study, measured values of nasal resistance are compared with measured values. An unclear discrepancy between the two methods was found, suggesting further investigation.
