Sinuses are the hollow cavities located in the bones of the face and around the nose. There are four sinus cavities: frontal, maxillary, ethmoid, and sphenoid, each with different features. Under normal conditions, the secretion (mucous) flow through the nasal passages, but with the onset of sinusitis, the secretion gets blocked in the sinuses due to inflammation. Sinusitis disturbs the normal lifestyle of a person and sometimes become frustrating, as it affects the person’s breathing, sleeping and eating.
Sinusitis can be divided into Acute Sinusitis, Recurrent Acute Rhinosinusitis (RARS) and chronic Rhinosinusitis (CRS), on the basis of the duration of the episode of sinusitis and its severity.
