Nose: The nose is a tent-like structure located on the middle of the face and composed of nasal bones and nasal cartilage. The nose includes the structures of the nasal cavity, nasal septum, nostrils, turbinates, mucus membranes, olfactory receptor neurons, nasal meati, and nasal cilia. The nose has a variety of functions, including taking in inspired air, trapping potentially harmful foreign particles, pollutants, and pathogens before they can reach the lungs. These harmful substances are then moved to the oropharynx, where they are swallowed into the stomach and destroyed by the acidic gastric juices. The nose also plays a large role in the sense of smell and warms and moisturizes air before it flows into the remainder of the respiratory tract.
Conditions that can afflict the nose include nosebleed, nasal congestion, nasal polyps, nasal fractures, upper respiratory infections, respiratory allergies, smoking, and trauma.
