A running nose - The importance
of sucking out the stagnant nasal secretion
Toddlers suffer from running nose six times
a year on average. This means the inflammation of the sinusitis
in the nose, which is often viral. If it isn't treated properly
and at the proper time the stagnant nasal secretion will become
a good substrate for the bacteria. In this case the initial
watery secretion becomes dense, which can cause respiratory
disorders and complications.
To prevent or avoid discomfort and respiratory disorders
the stagnant nasal secretion has to be removed first as it
may cause risk for sinusitis, or can be coughed to the middle
ear and cause middle ear infections, also the bacteria from
the mucus can go down from the pharynx to the bronchia and
can make risk for the bronchitis, laryngitis and pneumonia.
Older children are able to blow their noses, however infants
and toddlers are not yet able to. Therefore the secretion
has to be removed by sucking.
Motor aspirators are available only in hospitals so sucking
several times a day is impossible. The secretion has to be
sucked as often as an adult blows out his/her nose.
The Arianna Baby Vac is giving a gentle suction but strong
enough to remove the mucus deep inside from the nose. It can
be used safely on infants as well. Sucking doesn't hurt/harm
the nasal mucus membrane. It has been fully tested clinically
by international institutions such as the Medical University
Vienna in Austria, the University Ulm Clinic in Germany.
The apparatus sucks out the secretion not with the strength
of a vacuum but with its help.
If there is no discharge in the collecting
cylinder when using the Baby Vac, the procedure must be stopped.
A cold lasting for more than a few days or a week must be
checked by a doctor for allergy, adenoids or any complications
have to be excluded. Besides using the Baby Vac nasal drops
such as Saline nose drops is recommended few minutes before
the suction and vitamins may be needed for the better results.
Antibiotics are not required only if a specialist thinks so.
