Squip Nasaline Salt - 8 oz.
Nasaline Salt is highly purified non-iodized salt specifically made for use in mixing saline solution. Nasaline Salt is pure Sodium Chloride with no additives or preservatives and is completely safe to use with Nasaline's Nasal Irrigator for nasal cleansing. Nasaline Salt is obtained from deep well underground salt deposits, and has undergone the most stringent purification process controls to make sure it is of the highest quality and purity. Use of Nasaline Salt is recommended to prevent possible allergic reactions that one might develop from the iodine in store bought iodized salt or the algae sometimes found in sea salts.
Doctors recommend nasal irrigation to treat symptoms associated with colds, the flu, allergies, or sinus related infections. Nasaline Nasal Irrigator can also clean and soothe nasal passages after prolonged exposure to dry, dusty, or smoky environments. Under doctor supervision and direction, Nasaline Nasal Irrigator is also an effective tool for use in the follow up treatment to sinus or nose surgery.
Why Use Nasaline?
Nasaline is a unique, patented, drug-free nasal rinsing system designed by a team of Swedish ear, nose, and throat specialists. With the simple use of saline solution, Nasaline effectively washes away unwanted mucus, crusty secretions or allergens and provides relief from symptoms associated with allergies, colds, the flu and other sinus related infections. 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 recommended for:
- 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 nasal rinsing system that consists of a 2 oz. syringe, a silicone tip, saline and a storage/travel case. 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.
The Nasaline syringe delivery system has many advantages:
- Allows the user to control the flow and pressure for optimum safety, comfort and effectiveness
Protects against backflow if user slows down or stops during the rinsing process
- Easy to clean to prevent bacterial buildup
The patented silicone tip is:
- Designed to produce a gentle and effective swirl when the saline solution enters the nose.
- Made of medical grade silicone without any harmful plastic manufacturing components
Who can use Nasaline?
Anyone 4 years old or older can use Nasaline, however, children from age 4 to age 12 should not use Nasaline without parental supervision. For children from age 4 to age 12, use Nasaline Junior - a smaller unit- also to be used with parental supervision.
Can I use Nasaline if I am pregnant or breastfeeding?
Nasaline can be used during pregnancy and breastfeeding. In fact, since pregnant women should not be taking drugs for pregnancy congestion, nasal irrigation with saline solution is considered one of the best healthy natural alternatives to many over the counter and prescription drugs.
I've been using a Neti Pot for years, how is Nasaline different from the Neti Pot?
With Nasaline, the user actually controls the amount of pressure used, depending on the level of congestion. The patented silicon tip provides for a complete seal to the nostril, preventing any saline solution from pouring back through the same nostril for a more effective nasal rinse. Also, because you don't rely on gravity with Nasaline (as with a Neti Pot), you don't have to tilt your head awkwardly to the side, you simply stand upright, leaning slightly forward over your sink.
When making the saline solution, why is the salt-to-water ratio so important?
The saline solution has the same salt content as the human body (0.9%) - this is called a physiological (or isotonic) saline solution. Note: The proper salt/water ratio of the saline solution is VERY IMPORTANT! If too much salt is used (hypertonic), slight stinging may be felt. In some cases this may be desirable in order to shrink/reduce the swelling of the mucous membranes - but this may also dry them out if used for an extended period of time. If less than the prescribed amount of salt is used (hypotonic), a stinging sensation may also be felt and it may swell the mucous membranes. This is not desirable, as you may feel somewhat more congested than you did prior to rinsing.
Is the tip safe for contact with the skin?
The ENTIRE Nasaline applicator is latex-free and completely safe as it was specifically designed for direct contact with the skin.
What type of water should I use?
Use distilled or sterilized water. The saline solution should be at or close to body temperature. Once mixed, use the saline solution within 24 hours or discard.
Can I use ordinary table salt?
You can use ordinary salt, but if you are planning to use Nasaline for an extended period of time, you should use salt that is non-iodized and free of preservatives or anti-caking agents – additives that have been known to produce allergic reactions. It's recommended to use Nasaline Salt, which is 99.99% purified and completely free of additives.
Can I use sea salt to irrigate my nasal passages?
Although typically safe for eating, sea salts are generally not clean and should not be used for nasal irrigation. Some sea salts have been known to contain algae - which could result in allergic reactions.
What dosage should I use for Nasaline?
Use two(2) full syringes twice in each nostril per rinsing session. Rinse once or twice daily or as recommended by your doctor.
How should I clean Nasaline?
Pull out the plunger from the cylinder and rinse both parts with warm water and let air-dry. The Nasaline applicator can also be cleaned with a mild dishwashing detergent. When not in use, it's recommended that you store the Nasaline applicator with the plunger inserted into the cylinder to prevent the rubber surrounding the plunger from swelling. If the plunger does not easily slide back into the chamber, put a drop of olive oil on the plunger's black rubber ring.
Where and how should I store Nasaline?
Nasaline should be stored in a dry environment at room temperature. We recommend that you store the Nasaline applicator with the plunger inserted into the cylinder to prevent the rubber surrounding the plunger from swelling.
