Abstract

Background: Odiosoft-Rhino (OR) is new software and equipment that can be used to measure changes in nasal obstruction after intranasal steroid treatment. OR is a promising method for measuring the degree of nasal obstruction. OR can precisely analyze nasal sound spectra in decibels, which is generated by nasal airflow. We studied the reliability of OR for assessing declining nasal obstruction after budesonide nasal spray treatment.
