144754 - Cabrini GP Lectures- Term 2 Lecture 5 Topic: Common nasal problems and paranasal sinus disease e-learning

  • : Online

This online video of Cabrini's GP lecture is available for GPs via https://praxhub.com at not cost. The lecture entitled Common nasal problems and paranasal sinus disease is designed to educate GP's on identifying general anatomical and physiological principles of nasal and paranasal sinus anatomy and applying an anatomical and physiological approach to diagnosis of nasal and sinus disease to maximise primary care medical management options.

Relevance to General Practice

Sinusitis is an inflammatory condition affecting the nose and paranasal sinuses. It is one of the most common primary care presentations in Australia, and 1.4 in every 100 general practice encounters were for acute or chronic sinusitis . In 2011 and 2012, an estimated 1.9 million Australians had chronic rhinosinusitis. It has been shown to have a greater impact on social functioning than chronic heart failure, angina or back pain. 
Nasal obstruction may be acute or chronic and is a manifestation of a wide range of disease processes, most of which are managed by the GP. In patients with persistent nasal obstruction and in those with structural abnormalities, specialist referral is warranted.
