WHAT’S NASAL~FLOW©?

It is a medical device that studies the behaviour of the upper respiratory tract by means of the analysis of the air flow in the nasal cavity.

It is integrated in a medical or diagnostics centre and works remotely in a totally automatic way, performing a respiratory analysis scan of the nose performed in said centre.

APPLICATION

NASAL~FLOW© has been designed for use by ENT specialists.

It is indicated for use in patients with upper respiratory tract problems.

With a USABILITY designed to provide the professional a simple and friendly handling.

CLINICAL BENEFITS

The results obtained will provide the medical team with valuable information that will help them in the usual clinical practice to accurately detect the different alterations in the upper respiratory tract of patients, serving as a support for the diagnosis and decision making of the medical professional.

Improving the medical service of patients.

THE POWER OF SIMULATION

By means of the analysis of medical images (CT) the physical phenomena that occur inside the nasal cavity of the patient are analysed obtaining and providing information of the functionality of the nasal cavity.

MEASUREMENT
MEASUREMENT
NASAL~FLOW© makes a measurement of the perimeter of the nostrils, the area of the entrance and exit to the respiratory tract as well as its total volume.
FLOW RATE
FLOW RATE
The flow rate is quantified on each side of the airways in order to determine a lack of airflow traffic.
WSS
WSS
On the geometry of the anatomy, the zones of suffering/stress by the friction of the air flow in the walls of the nasal cavity are represented.
PRESSURE
PRESSURE
A colour mask is measured on the geometry of the anatomy, indicating the pressure values at any point in the nasal cavity.
VELOCITY
VELOCITY
On the geometry of the anatomy, the velocity of the airflow in the different anatomical zones of the nasal cavity is obtained.
TEMPERATURE
TEMPERATURE
It is observed, on the geometry of the anatomy, the transfer of heat from the airflow during its transit in the nasal cavity.

ANALISYS RESULTS

The result of the flow analysis is provided in a report. Its objective is to read the results in an agile and detailed way.

A report is obtained in PDF format once the case has finished. A study that represents the air flow is generated.

This report provides quantitative information on the functionality of airflow in each patient’s nasal cavity.

The PDF report consists of the following data.

MESH QUALITY

Quality data of the geometry obtained

DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS

Measurement values of the anatomical structure

ACOUSTIC RHINOMETRY

Graphic similar to an acoustic rhinometry

NASAL RESISTANCE

Measurement of nasal resistance

FLOW RATE

Amount of airflow circulating through the nasal cavity

PRESSURE

Airflow pressure over the nasal cavity

WSS

Airflow friction stress/suffering zones

TEMPERATURE

Airflow heat transfer

VELOCITY

Velocity of airflow in the nasal cavity

3D VIEWER

The 3D viewer is a tool that allows visualizing a solved case and allows the interaction with a 3D representation of
the results of the study.

The geometry generated can be freely compared with the radiological study, with the patient’s facial surface and with the results of the flow study in an agile and interactive way.

The result can be analysed with more detail and precision thanks to its interactive handling.

VIRTUAL SURGERY

Virtual Surgery is a tool implemented in NASAL~FLOW© that allows simulations of surgical interventions in the patient’s CT.

It is possible to draw air or tissue on each medical image which allows the simulation of a surgical intervention of the patient and obtaining a post-operated nasal cavity.

Thanks to NASAL~FLOW© it is possible to make a new analysis on the virtually post-operated nasal cavity to check how its functionality changes.

It is a non-invasive technique and very beneficial as it can reduce the rate of post-operative failures.

DEPLOYMENT

NASAL~FLOW© is purchased through an annual contract with a hospital, private clinic
or diagnostic centre.

Each device is exclusively associated with a CT machine, synchronized with our digital medical image archiving system (PACS).

To work, NASAL~FLOW© requires this device to be hosted in our data centre. Remotely, flow analyses are performed automatically, without any user interaction in this process.

Attached to the CT is the report of the results of the analisys. The rest of the tools can be accessed from the platform.

NASAL~FLOW© complies with data protection regulation.

FEATURES

NASAL~FLOW© is designed to perform flow analysis automatically with an average response of 2 hours from interception. It has the capacity to perform more than 2,000 analyses per year.
