Scope:  Nasal Drug delivery system is used to disperse drug directly central nervous system, through Olfactory region. Drug particle are placed inside drug delivery device. The efficiency of the drug delivered to olfactory region located in the Nasal Cavity depends on the size, location of the particle (Pouch) inside device and time of release. Study was carried to trace the particle trajectory for different size particle and concentration of the drug particle in various regions, within the Nasal cavity to evaluate the effectiveness of the device. Based on the data collected, effectiveness of the device can be calculated for different volumes of drug storage (Pouch) with particle of various sizes and design changes are suggested to improve efficiency.
