What Is Nasal Airway Obstruction (NAO)?

Do you regularly feel like you can’t breathe easily through your nose? Maybe it’s affecting your quality of sleep, or you find it hard to exercise. If so, you may have a common and often undiagnosed condition called nasal airway obstruction, or NAO.

Common Symptoms of Nasal Obstruction:

  • Trouble breathing through your nose, or a “blocked” feeling
  • Nasal congestion
  • Difficulty sleeping, leading to fatigue
  • Struggling to breathe through your nose during exercise
  • Frequent “mouth breathing”

What Causes Nasal Airway Obstruction?

NAO is caused by an anatomical narrowing or blockage in the nasal airway that can hinder airflow and make it feel difficult or nearly impossible to breathe through your nose. People with nasal airway obstruction talk about feeling “blocked,” congested, or stuffy nearly all the time. Home remedies and medications can offer some temporary comfort, but for those struggling with chronic nasal obstruction, remodeling the nasal airway is a proven way to find lasting relief.

VIVAER CAN HELP

Get Lasting Relief Right in Your Doctor’s Office with VivAer

Some patients respond well to medications, and some can benefit from an invasive surgery. However, medications might only offer temporary relief, and surgery isn’t always the best option for every patient. With VivAer, patients can get significant, lasting relief with a non-invasive, office-friendly treatment.

How VivAer Works

With VivAer, your ENT physician will first apply local anesthesia to numb the inside of your nose and then insert a small wand into your nostril to precisely target and treat the blockage. The tip of the wand uses low-temperature radiofrequency (RF) energy to gently remodel your nasal passage to improve airflow. The treatment has minimal discomfort, and once it’s finished, you can typically get right back to your normal daily activities.
