ABSTRACT

There are many methods for assessing impaired olfaction, but odorivectors used for testing exclude feasibility of creating a standardized common approach, therefore, the results of olfactory function tests cannot be strictly formalized. Also, most of the existing techniques for diagnosing abnormalities in the olfactory analyzer function are based on patient-subjective data, which in turn is also a substantial limitation. Thus, the goal of the present work is to develop a method for studying the respiratory and olfactory dysfunctions that would allow, by placing the carrier of an odorous substance in the airway of a rhinomanometer, as well as by determining the energy characteristics of respiration, to associate breathing parameters with olfactory function parameters. This would allow performing effective and evidential tests of both respiratory and olfactory impairments. Here, we describe a technique for conducting studies of respiratory and olfactory disorders including the reliability evaluation of measurements by the proposed method. The calculations showed that test-retest-reliability coefficient corresponds to a high degree of reliability of the conducted measurements. The prospect of work is the choice of concentrations of odorous substances for differential diagnosis of the olfactory analyzer sensitivity disorders.
