Following an accident, attention is often focused on injuries to a victim’s brain, neck and spine as these are those commonly seen as having the most immediate impact on the quality of life. But injuries to the nose and face can be just as detrimental and can have lasting, even lifelong effects.
The position of the nose makes the bones, cartilage and soft tissue vulnerable to external injuries and, in fact, it’s the most common type of facial fractures. While trauma to the nose can result in superficial bleeding, bruising and swelling, a fracture may go undetected — and untreated — at the time of injury. A careful examination is important for anyone who sustains nasal trauma due to the possibility of a fracture or blood clots. Physical deformity, infections and obstructed breathing are potential complications of nasal trauma. This is why an Otolaryngologist, commonly referred to as an ENT, can make all the difference in a patient’s recovery.
An ENT can determine whether blood vessels positioned close to the surface have been compromised or the cartilage lining the sinuses has been fractured. Nasal trauma can be life threatening if not addressed immediately, due to obstructed or compromised airways, difficulty breathing or a hemorrhage. Even in situations where a patient’s life isn’t in immediate danger, ENT’s are essential to helping patients literally breathe easier following a traumatic accident.
