Nasal Cilia: The nasal cilia are tiny hairs located on the mucus membranes of the nose. The nasal cilia trap potentially harmful foreign particles, pollutants, and pathogens before they can reach the lungs. The nasal cilia then move these particles mixed with mucus to the oropharynx where they can be expectorated or swallowed into the stomach and destroyed by the acidic gastric juices.
Conditions that can afflict the nasal cilia include cold exposure, pollutant exposure, nasal congestion, upper respiratory infections, respiratory allergies, smoking, and trauma.
