Beschreibung

A deviated nose septum is a disorder in which the nasal septum (the bone and cartilage that divide the nasal cavity of the nose) is substantially off center, or crooked, making breathing difficult.
Most people have some form of difference in the size of their right and left nasal passages.
Only the more severe differences cause considerable breathing disorders and need treatment.
The deviated nose septum can be observed when the delicate wall (nasal wall) of nose between the nostrils is displaced to any side
It can be seen that the wall of nose dislocated or different causes the nasal entrance smaller.
When a deviated nose septum is severe, it is able to obstruct any side of one's nose and reduce the airflow which results in breathing difficulty.
The effect of dryness in air flowing through nose is another indication of deviated nose septum which induces the encrustation and loss of blood in some people.
Nasal blockage can occur from these abnormal deviations from swelling of the tissues covering the nose or from either of the two.
Causes:
Congenital: occurs at birth
Injury: collision, contact body sports
Children are more vulnerable to such deviations as the bones are still soft.
As the body becomes older, the structure of the nose is likely to get affected even more and produces a worst situation
It causes acute nasal blockage as the nasal passage becomes narrow due to the dislocation.
Symptoms:
In most cases of deviated nose septum there is almost no indication of any form.
The most frequent symptom of a deviated nose septum is nasal congestion, with one side of the nose being more congested than the other, along with difficulty breathing.
Frequent Nosebleeds
Facial pain
Headache
Postnasal drip
Loud breathing and snoring during sleep
Obstructive sleep apnea
Some people have the habit of sleeping on one particular side.
They feel free flow of air during sleeping on that side.
Diagnosis:
The doctor normally sprays a decongestant spray in to the nose before and after the examination
Endoscopic examination of the nose is done
Any deviation of the septum is seen easily
Initial Treatment
The treatment for deviated nose septum may start with treating the obvious symptoms of the disorder such as swollen lining in the nose resulting in the drainage obstruction in the nose.
The doctor may use these medicines for deviated nose septum at the start:
A decongestant may be given to reduce the swollen nose tissue.
It assists to open the passage of the nose properly and let air enter through both holes
Decongestant is available in both spray and tablet form.
Any incorrect dosages can lead to the dependency on the decongestant and involve the heart rate or the blood pressure.
During initial treatment, doctors normally also give antihistamines to counter the nasal allergies.
Some antihistamines have more effect on the body and make it drowsy so activities like driving should be avoided under such situations.
On many occasions doctors use nasal steroid sprays to reduce the inflammation in the nasal passage.
It should be well noted that medicines can only fix this problem temporarily and not permanently.
If medicines alone do not provide adequate relief, a surgical procedure called septoplasty may be needed to correct a crooked septum and improve breathing.
Septoplasty is the frequent surgery for the correction of deviated nose septum when there is no successful effect is noticed with the medicines
It is the most frequent way to correct any displacement in the nasal wall of small or big type
Reshaping the Nose or Rhinoplasty is often done along with septoplasty to reshape the nose for deviated nose septum.

Introduction

I have been writing medical articles for my blog http://kennethkee.blogspot.com (A Simple Guide to Medical Disorder) for the benefit of my patients since 2007.

My purpose in writing these simple guides was for the health education of my patients.

Health Education was also my dissertation for my Ph.D (Healthcare Administration).

I then wrote an autobiolographical account of his journey as a medical student to family doctor on his other blog http://afamilydoctorstale.blogspot.com.

This autobiolographical account A Family Doctor’s Tale was combined with my early A Simple Guide to Medical Disorders into a new Wordpress Blog A Family Doctor’s Tale on http://kenkee481.wordpress.com.

From which many free articles from the blog was taken and put together into 800 amazon kindle books and 200 into Smashwords.com eBooks.

Some people have complained that the simple guides are too simple.

For their information they are made simple in order to educate the patients.

The later books go into more details of medical disorders.

The first chapter is always from my earlier blogs which unfortunately tends to have typos and spelling mistakes.

Since 2013, I have tried to improve my spelling and writing.

As I tried to bring the patient the latest information about a disorder or illness by reading the latest journals both online and offline, I find that I am learning more and improving on my own medical knowledge in diagnosis and treatment for my patients.

Just by writing all these simple guides I find that I have learned a lot from your reviews (good or bad), criticism and advice.

I am sorry for the repetitions in these simple guides as the second chapters onwards have new information as compared to my first chapter taken from my blog.

I also find repetition definitely help me and maybe some readers to remember the facts in the books more easily.

I apologize if these repetitions are irritating to some readers.

Chapter 1

Deviated Nose Septum

I have a deviated nose septum as a result of boxing with my brother while in my teens.

Fortunately it is only slight but it is enough to cause blockage when I catch a cold.

What is Deviated Nose Septum?

A deviated nose septum is a disorder in which the nasal septum (the bone and cartilage that divide the nasal cavity of the nose) is substantially off center, or crooked, making breathing difficult.

Most people have some form of difference in the size of their right and left nasal passages.

Only the more severe differences cause considerable breathing disorders and need treatment.

The deviated nose septum can be observed when the delicate wall (nasal wall) of nose between the nostrils is displaced to any side.

It can be seen that the wall of nose dislocated or different causes the nasal entrance smaller.

When a deviated nose septum is severe, it is able to obstruct any side of one's nose and reduce the airflow which results in breathing difficulty.

The effect of dryness in air flowing through nose is another indication of deviated nose septum which induces the encrustation and loss of blood in some people.

Nasal blockage can occur from these abnormal deviations from swelling of the tissues covering the nose or from either of the two.

The treatment to cure nasal blockage may involve medicines to reduce the inflation or sticky strips that may help in clearing the entrance of the nose.

To improve this displacement of nasal septum, surgery on the deviation is essential.

The nasal septum is the wall separating the cavity of nose into two parts, made of middle sustaining bone and cartilage and enclosed with mucous membrane from each side.

Incidence

80% of people, most not knowingly, have some form of misalignment to their nasal septum.

If one has this kind of disorder, it means one's septum is deviated and hence the name is deviated nose septum.

Otolaryngologists (specialist doctors of ear, nose and throat or ENT) believed that the nasal wall is deviated to some extent in more than 80 % of the people.

What are the causes of Deviated Nose Septum?
