Why Nasal Care?

Why do babies need nasal aspiration?

  • Early recovery from cold, RS virus, and middle ear infection.
  • Prevents bacteria and mucus from entering the middle ear.
    Presense of excess nasal mucus can cause middle ear infection.

Why does a nasal aspirator need strong suction power?

  • “Tough nasal mucus tends to stick around”

In cases where sinus inflammation is present, sticky nasal mucus tends to flow toward the throat from a deep part of the nasal cavity. This is called a postnasal drip.
When a postnasal drip occurs, nasal mucus remains in the deep part of the nasal cavity near the throat and in most cases, can’t be resolved by simply blowing the nose.

  • “Mucosa lives and grows in the nasal cavity.”
    When mucus is caught behind a bend in the nasal passage, a strong suction power is required to remove it.
