SinusitisStreaming Video - 2009
Although sinusitis affects some 30 million Americans each year, its frequent appearance alongside the common cold can make for a difficult diagnosis. This program illustrates the causes of sinusitis, assesses various treatments for it, and highlights two sinusitis case studies. Viewers discover how pollution, allergies, and dehydration are all linked to the ailment and how it presents as an infection blocking the sinus passages. Also discussed are the differences between acute, subacute, and chronic sinusitis, as well as the treatment options now available, including saline and steroid sprays, antibiotics, and endoscopic surgery. Expert commentary comes from Dr. Thomas Troost of the Washington ENT Group; Dr. Suzette Mikula of Georgetown University Hospital; and Dr. Harvey Plasse, coauthor of Sinusitis Relief.
