It is like an airconditioner of body. Just like your AC, IT

  • Filter the air
  • Humidify the air
  • Adjust the temprature, to that of body
  • Disinfect the air

As in case of AC, if the system is blocked, it will dysfuction.


The respiratory system begins, in part, with the nose. Air can be breathed in or out of this passage way from the outside world to the inner workings of the human body through what is called an airway. The nose also provides a protective barrier from outside airborne influences that could harm us, using a few different clever "barricades". The first of these are the hairs within the nose; small yet plentiful, these hairs serve to trap larger particles that are present in the air that we breathe. Next, mucus is produced by the system to trap other particles that are too small to be ensnared in the nose hairs.


Finally, the body's response to rid itself of these elements that have managed to get into the nose is to sneeze; an explosive exhalation of air through the nose designed to catapult these irritants out before they make their way further into the body. The nose provides the perfect accompaniment to the respiratory system; a secondary airway as well as a means to block and eliminate irritating substances from invading the body. Perfect, that is, unless some type of nose problem interrupts this natural synergy; causing any number of issues. There are certain problems that are more commonly seen with the nose; sinus, allergies, nosebleeds, breathing difficulties and deviated septum.


Since our sense of taste is greatly affected by our sense of smell, when nose problems exist, we are likely to not eat the foods that we should. While it may seem odd to associate eating with smelling, it does make sense that the "scents" we encounter can help us eat healthier by fixing problems we may have with our nose.

Top 5 Most Common Nose Problems

  • Sinuses : -Called "para nasal" sinuses due to their proximity to the nasal cavities, these are sacs behind and within the facial bones that are normally filled with air. Tiny tunnel-like orifices connect the sinuses to the nasal cavity. These tunnels can become blocked rather easily when the individual suffers from a cold or from an allergy attack. Blockages can develop into sinusitis, an inflammation of the para nasal sinus passages when mucus is unable to drain in the normal manner. Symptoms can include headache and a thick, greenish discharge from the nose.
  • Allergies : -An allergic reaction occurs when the body's immune system mistakenly identifies a substance in the environment as being a threat to the body. With the allergic reaction comes a variety of symptoms, most of which affect the nose. Problems such as sneezing, nasal congestion, runny nose, watery and itchy eyes and sinus infections are typically experienced.

  • Nose bleeds : -Lining the interior of the nose are tiny blood vessels that provide blood to the nasal cavities. These blood vessels are just under a thin layer of skin and are easily ruptured. There are many causes for these ruptures that result in a nosebleed; dry air, sinusitis, allergies, colds, foreign objects in the nose, picking the nose, and irritants among others. Most nose bleeds stop on their own, but when a copious amount of blood is lost or if it is difficult to breathe, a doctor should be consulted.
  • Difficulty breathing : -Most cases that involve breathing problems through the nose are associated with allergies, sinus or the deviated septum. Recurrent episodes of breathing issues should be more closely examined by a doctor.

  • Deviated septum : -A thin wall called the septum separates the two nasal cavities. In about 80% of people, one side is smaller than the other, which is a deviation. When severely deviated, problems of nosebleeds, frequent sinus infections and breathing difficulty can be experienced. Surgery will be required to repair this problem.

Blocked Nose

Septum Perforation

Foreign Body Inhalation

Dry Nose


The major issue with any of these nose problems is the symptoms they produce. Additionally, they affect our sense of taste, which can affect our eating habits. Fixing the problems will help you to not only feel better, but eat better as well.

What is Endoscopy? How can it help?

Endoscopy is the process of passing thin Prismatic tubes with a camera attached, into small cavities for proper internal visualization. It helps in proper diagnosis and facilitates in treating many diseases with minimum discomfort in OPD itself. It is quick, painless and easier process than you think. Invention of Endoscopes has revolutionized the field of ENT resulting in opening of sites which seems to be difficult earlier. Base of skull, sinuses, orbit and food/air passage can be approached easily. It also helps in early diagnosis and cure of diseases without any incision or stitch. Modern ENT practice, Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (FESS) or Minimal Invasive Sinus Technique (MIST) is based on this new concept with minimal intervention or alteration in natural pathway.

What is Minimal Invasive Surgery?

Endoscopes & Microscopes are now used to perform operations through minimal incisions (also known as Stitch-less Surgery). In fact Endoscopic Surgery does not even require an incision or stitch. More-over duration of stay is also reduced to a day in most of the cases.

What is Endonasal DCR?

It is opening of Nasolacrimal Duct in the nose at the level of lacrimal sac with the help of Endoscope. Major advantages over external one are no post-op scar, can be done at Acute stage with minimal blood loss. Results are equal & patient’s discomfort is minimal.
