Through years of evaluation and treatment of patients with taste and smell dysfunction at the Taste and Smell Clinic, specific methods and techniques have proven useful in caring for patients with these symptoms.

Because of this success, our methods and techniques were reduced to practice and resulted in the development of specific products for use by both patients and physicians. A few of these products are described below.

AccuSens Taste Kit- This is a self-contained taste-testing kit for use by physicians and other health professionals interested in measuring human taste function. It contains testing materials, forms for recording results, and full instructions for its use. This kit is available through the auspices of a major drug company, and has been nationally advertised in major medical journals. It has been used successfully in physician offices, schools, and in sensory function laboratories for over 35 years.

AccuSens Sinus Kit- This is a simple self-contained kit for use by patients and physicians (1) to assist in stimulating nasal mucus secretion, (2) to facilitate clearance of excess mucus and debris from the nasal passageways, and (3) to relieve symptoms associated with nasal allergies. Use of this kit has proven successful in improving nasal breathing, relieving nocturnal snoring, and reducing nocturnal mouth breathing. Included in this kit are materials for use in easing nasal breathing, equipment to perform clearing of the nasal passageways, and a set of written instructions. The kit has been used successfully by patients at the Taste and Smell Clinic for such disorders as allergic rhinitis, acute and chronic sinusitis, and other types of upper airway disease for over 20 years.

AccuSens Saliva Kit- This is a simple self-contained kit designed for use by physicians and other health professionals in the collection of human saliva. The kit contains materials for collecting parotid saliva and instructions for its use. The AccuSens Saliva Kit facilitates the diagnosis of patients with various clinical problems related to salivary secretion. These clinical problems may include, but are not limited to Sjogren's syndrome, impairment of salivary secretion following x-irradiation or neutron radiation to the head and/or neck, and salivary dysfunction after I131 treatment for thyroid cancer. It has been used successfully at the Taste and Smell Clinic for over 35 years.
