This paper presents the results of a study of the basic parameters of respiratory function of the nasal cavity in Mature, elderly and senile age. Presents the main indicators of nasal breathing: nasal cavity volume, air volume and air velocity. Reflect the characteristic of dynamic changes of respiratory indexes of the nasal cavity in elderly and senile age taking into account their gender, complexion and features of the skull. The critical period of declining respiratory function of nasal breathing in old age is identified.
