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.

Performs respiratory analysis using a CT scan of the patient’s nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses, integrating interactive visualization and simulation of Virtual Surgeries tools.

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.

NASAL~FLOW® SALES CHANNELS

NASAL~FLOW® is aimed at healthcare system stakeholders, whether they are patients,
medical professionals, care networks or insurance systems.

NASAL~FLOW® has different marketing models.

NASAL~FLOW® ON-DEMAND

It is an online service for the use of the full potential of the device.

Through the acquisition of credits from the web platform, flow studies can be carried out on demand.

NASAL~FLOW® has a comprehensive model dedicated to the patient through the acquisition of NASAL~FLOW® BONUS.

NASAL~FLOW® BONUS

It is a service destined to the patient for the comprehensive treatment of nasal obstruction through the analysis of respiratory flows.

NASAL has a network of contracted centres for carrying out diagnostic tests and medical treatment included in the service.

NASAL~FLOW® BONUS INCLUDES:

NASAL~FLOW® IN-HOME

It is a device for the analysis of respiratory airflows that is installed in the medical professional’s office.

It is contracted for a year fee, can perform more than 400 analyses per year and has the ability to use all the features of the device.

Fully automated, in which the medical professional will only have to insert a pen drive or CD/DVD with the images from the CT to send. The device automatically carries out the case study.

NASAL~FLOW® IN-HOUSE/ON-CLOUD

It is a system designed to be used in an healthcare network or insurance system, fully automated and performs a respiratory airflow analysis for each CT scan of the nose performed in that network.

NASAL~FLOW® IN-HOUSE/ON-CLOUD is acquired through an annual contract.

Remotely, respiratory airflow analyses are performed automatically, without any kind of user interaction in the process.

DEPLOYMENT

NASAL~FLOW® IN-HOUSE/ON-CLOUD are synchronized to the CT machines of the healthcare network, using our digital medical image archiving system (PACS).

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