Summary
Most people lose some olfactory sense as they approach old age, but the problem can also impact the lives of young or middle-aged adults and require extensive medical treatment. This program examines the causes of smell and taste loss, surveys various treatments for it, and presents several case studies of the unhappy condition. Viewers learn about the basic functions of the olfactory nerve; the various types of smell and taste loss, including phantosmia, or hallucinated smells; and the array of diagnostic and treatment options available-from a clinical scratch-and-sniff test to endoscopic surgery. Expert guests include Dr. Eric Holbrook, a sinus surgeon and Harvard Medical School professor; Dr. Alan Hirsch, neurological director at Chicago's Smell & Taste Treatment and Research Foundation; and Dr. Robert Henkin, a pioneer in taste and smell research.
