Why Use Nasaline?
Nasaline is a unique, patented, drug-free nasal irrigation system designed by a team of Swedish ear, nose, and throat specialists. With the simple use of saline solution, Nasaline effectively washes away unwanted mucous, crusty secretions or allergens and provides relief from symptoms associated with allergies, colds, or the flu. After a prolonged stay in dry, dusty, or smoky environments, Nasaline cleans and soothes the nasal passages, reducing nasal irritation and moistening the mucous membranes.
Nasaline is also prescribed for the following:
Prevention of sinus related infections.
Drug-free relief from pregnancy congestion.
Follow up treatment to sinus or nose surgery.
Relief from symptoms associated with nose polyps or after the excessive use of cold medicines such as nose sprays and drops.
What makes Nasaline unique?
Nasaline is a patented system that consists of a 2 oz syringe and a silicone tip. The silicone tip was designed to fit most noses in such a way as to completely seal the nostril opening. The channel inside the tip is formed in the shape of an hourglass, producing a gentle swirl stream when the saline solution enters the nose. The silicone tip does not contain latex and is safe for direct contact with the skin.
How to Use Nasaline®
1. Mix half a (1/2) teaspoon of salt into one (1) cup of water (ca 2.5 grams salt into 1/4 liter water). Stir to dissolve the salt.
2. Extract the saline solution completely into the syringe.
3. Stand (or sit) slightly bent over a bathroom sink, washbasin, or bathtub. Put the silicone tip against the nose so that it completely seals the nostril. Slowly push the saline solution up into the nostril. Breathe normally (or say aaah...) through the mouth and refrain from swallowing. When the saline solution reaches the back of the nasal cavity, the palate closes automatically by reflex. The saline solution fills the nasal cavity and proceeds to pour out of the other nostril as it brings along unwanted mucous and crusty secretions. Occasionally, some of the saline solution can trickle down the throat. This is not harmful. A proper flushing should take anywhere from 3-7 seconds per nostril depending on level of congestion, narrowness of ones nasal passages or personal preference. Repeat the process for other nostril.
4. Use a tissue to gently blow out any remaining solution in the nose. Some of the saline solution can remain in the nose and trickle out a few hours later. Tilting your head forward and turning side to side immediately after flushing can prevent this. If you are severely congested, the saline solution can reach the sinus channels and can occasionally drip out of the eyes. This is not harmful and can be prevented by flushing more slowly.
Dosage: Use one (1) or two (2) full syringes for each nostril in the morning and evening or at any time as necessary.
Cleaning: Pull out the piston from the syringe and flush both parts thoroughly with hot water and lit it air-dry. Nasaline can also be cleaned with a mild dishwashing detergent, but it should not be necessary for cleaning. If piston does not easily slide back into chamber, put a drop of cooking oil on the back of piston tip.
Saline Solution Recipe:
Heat up fresh clean tap water or use water directly from the tap. The water temperature should be at (or close to) body temperature and feel comfortable to the touch. Mix half a (1/2) teaspoon of salt into one (1) cup of water (ca 2.5 grams salt into 1/4 liter water). Stir to dissolve the salt. The saline solution now has the same salt content as the human body (0.9%)- this is called a physiological saline solution. IMPORTANT: If you feel or a light stinging feeling in your nose when you flush, you may be adding too much or too little salt.
If you are planning to use Nasaline for an extended period of time, non-iodized salt should be used to prevent any allergic reactions that may develop from the iodine or the algae frequently found in sea salts. We recommend using Nasaline Salt, which is 99.99% pure sodium chloride and does not contain any additives or preservatives.
