Nevada ENT and Reno Tahoe Sinus Center Collaborate with Harvard Medical School

Dr. Meier recently returned from Chicago where the paper “A Validated Model for the 22-item Sinonasal Outcome Test Subdomain Structure in Chronic Rhinosinusitis” was presented at the American Rhinologic Society’s Annual Meeting. This paper demonstrated that the 22 questions found in the SNOT-22 can be grouped into 4 subdomains (sleep, nasal, otologic/facial pain and emotional). Data was provided from 400 patients from Nevada ENT / Reno Tahoe Sinus Center and 400 patients from Harvard / Mass Eye and Ear. Dr. Meier and Dr. Killeen enjoyed collaborating without colleagues from Boston and look forward to future projects. Special thanks to our hard working, 2nd year UNR medical student, Nicholas Weseley, who performed the data collection.
