 In Podcast (The Physical Performance Show)

Dr Dan Robinson

In episode 253 of The Physical Performance Show Brad Beer shares a conversation with Dr Dan Robinson: ENT Surgeon: ‘Navigating nasal obstruction’ on this Expert Edition.

On this episode, I share with you a conversation I recently had with Gold Coast based ear nose and throat surgeon Dr. Dan Robinson on all things navigating nasal obstruction. One in three people experience nasal obstruction.

Listen in as Dr Dan Robinson shares around the different types of nasal obstruction, how nasal obstruction presents in both children and fully grown adults, the different types of obstructive sleep apnea; central and peripheral and how each of those presents, the physiology of breathing and why when we exercise most of it occurs through the mouth yet that’s reversed when we sleep with the bulk of breathing happening through our nose. Dr Dan shares around nasal anatomy including the nasal valve and why it is so important and importantly how to treat nasal obstruction and the treatment pathway or sieve as Dr Dan Robinson refers to it as that exists all the way from nasal spray through to devices through to surgical procedures.
