  1. pmc Perceiving nasal patency through mucosal cooling rather than air temperature or nasal resistance
    Kai Zhao
    Monell Chemical Senses Center, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States of America
    PLoS ONE 6:e24618. 2011
    ..The dynamic cooling between the airstream and the mucosal wall may be quantified experimentally or computationally and could potentially lead to a new clinical evaluation tool...
  2. pmc Regional peak mucosal cooling predicts the perception of nasal patency
    Kai Zhao
    Monell Chemical Senses Center, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, U S A Department of Otolaryngology, Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, U S A
    Laryngoscope 124:589-95. 2014
    ..Previous work has suggested that the perception of nasal patency may involve nasal trigeminal activation by cool inspiratory airflow; we attempt to derive clinically relevant variables following this phenomenon...

    Kai Zhao
    Monell Chemical Senses Center, Philadelphia, PA Department of Otolaryngology, Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, PA
    Int Forum Allergy Rhinol 4:298-308. 2014
    ..We aimed to examine possible conductive factors using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) models...

    Kai Zhao
    Monell Chemical Senses Center, Philadelphia, PA Department of Otolaryngology, Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, PA
    Int Forum Allergy Rhinol 4:435-46. 2014
    ..Given individual variation in nasal anatomy, there is yet no consensus what constitutes normal nasal airflow patterns. We attempt to obtain such information that is essential to differentiate disease-related conditions...

  1. Nasal airflow and odorant transport: a prerequisite for normal olfaction
    Kai Zhao; Fiscal Year: 2007
    ..In the future, such modeling techniques may provide quantitative evaluation of surgical procedures and an important pre-operative guide to optimize airflow and odorant delivery in human nose. ..
