The nose is the most important organ for respiratory function in which it automatically inhales and exhales alongside the mouth. Your nose contains the nerve cells, so you can smell and for this reason you can taste things. One of the most important functions of nose is filtering the air you breathe in by removing germs, dusts and irritants. So, it has an important role in our health. It also warms and moistens the air to keep your lungs and tubes that lead to them from drying out.
A nose consists of bone and cartilage. The nasal septum is a cartilage divides nostrils evenly and or unevenly.
