  Nasal Airflow 2

  The septum is partially removed. The most narrowed portion is just inside the nostril. The plane of this cut-away is roughly the location of the nasal valve. This "valve" is the narrowest cross section of the nasal airway. Swelling here or deviations of the septum can easily cause obstructions.
