This article presents a new technique for creation of a model that can be used to study the aerodynamics of the nasal airway. The model is employed to determine parameters used to calculate nasal resistance and modified to compare various types of nasal obstruction. It quantitatively compares the importance of septal deviation, turbinate size, and nasopharyngeal port size to airflow. A new parameter of nasal resistance is introduced.
