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.
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.
NASAL OBSTRUCTION DIAGNOSIS
NASAL has performed a clinical study that shows that NASAL~FLOW® is able to diagnose nasal obstruction in the upper airways obtaining results of 63% sensitivity and 87% specificity.
COMPARISON WITH RHINOMANOMETRY
NASAL~FLOW® is the only device capable of determining the airflow rate in septal perforated nostrils and provides more complete and detailed information than an acoustic rhinometry test.
POWER AND DIAGNOSIS PRECISION
NASAL~FLOW® performs a breathing simulation that allows exploration of the results with a level of detail capable of diagnosing nasal obstructions difficult to detect by usual clinical practice.
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.
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.
The flow rate is quantified on each side of the airways in order to determine a lack of airflow traffic.
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.
A colour mask is measured on the geometry of the anatomy, indicating the pressure values at any point in the nasal cavity.
On the geometry of the anatomy, the velocity of the airflow in the different anatomical zones of the nasal cavity is obtained.
It is observed, on the geometry of the anatomy, the transfer of heat from the airflow during its transit in the nasal cavity.
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.
Quality data of the geometry obtained
Measurement values of the anatomical structure
Graphic similar to an acoustic rhinometry
Measurement of nasal resistance
Amount of airflow circulating through the nasal cavity
Airflow pressure over the nasal cavity
Airflow friction stress/suffering zones
Airflow heat transfer
Velocity of airflow in the nasal cavity
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.
The 3D viewer has the option to visualize the patient’s CT on the geometry of the anatomy.
The facial reconstruction created through the patient’s CT scan can be displayed. An endoscopic examination is possible.
*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.

The device is installed in the healthcare centre itself.
The device is installed in our data centre.
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.
NASAL~FLOW® PRODUCTS / SALES CHANNELS
NASAL~FLOW® has a guarantee equivalent to the duration of the contract, so its operation is guaranteed through maintenance and technical service that resolves problems of use and detects unexpected results.
NASAL~FLOW® is designed to perform airflow analysis with a guaranteed response of 6 hours for the NASAL~FLOW® IN-HOUSE/ON-CLOUD model and 24 hours for the NASAL~FLOW® IN-HOME model. In the other models the time is 6 hours from interception.
Perform the number of virtual surgeries required and request a flow analysis for each simulated surgery to decide which of the interventions is the best functional solution for the patient.
Automatic flow analysis for each nose radiology study performed on the associated CT machine.
Tool that allows the realization of virtual surgical simulations with the possibility of manually requesting flow analysis of each one.
ARCHIVE AND BACKUP
All data generated from device activity is stored on our servers and maintained for the duration of the contract.
