Nasal washing has several benefits, including cleaning nasal mucus; decrease in local inflammation; cleaning of purulent secretions, cell debris and crusts; improves the functioning of the mucociliary system (improves the function of the cilia present in the nasal mucosa responsible for cleaning the nasal mucus).
In addition, as we talked about in the post about Allergic Rhinitis, Pharmaceutical spray is fundamental in its treatment. It is considered the most conservative and simplest treatment of all, and can be used in cases of rhinitis, sinusitis and upper airway infections (flu and colds).
In 2012, the EPOS, the main consensus used for clinical practice on the subject, showed recommendation level A in the treatment of rhinosinusitis, that is, a higher level of recommendation in the medical literature.
Due to its great importance in the treatment of various diseases, below we will show you how to properly wash your nose and apply nasal spray. Nasal washing with saline is very important to keep the nasal mucosa always hydrated.
Position the nozzle of the syringe in the right nostril using the left hand and turning the nozzle slightly towards the right ear. Push the plunger with speed and draw in the deep air; (part of the serum may come out of the same nostril, the opposite nostril or fall into the throat). The process can be repeated several times throughout the day if necessary.
The saline solution in the form of a pressurized spray is available on the market under different brands and with different specifications. Some are more aimed at children, including a different applicator nozzle and some more for adults, with a stronger jet.
The most important thing is to have a continuous jet applicator, which guarantees better jet performance and, consequently, a more effective nasal wash;
Doing the nasal wash correctly is very important for the health of the nose and for the treatment of various diseases.
Nasal congestion and pain are very common symptoms of a cold or sinusitis. At that time, using vasoconstrictor drugs will help the patient reduce this uncomfortable feeling. In some cases, the doctor will prescribe the patient to use Pharmaceutical nasal spray. So, what is Pharmaceutical and how is it used?
Pharmaceutical is a vasoconstrictor. This narrows the blood vessels in the nasal area, thereby reducing swelling and reducing nasal congestion. Furthermore, pharmaceutical constricts the vascular system by direct stimulation of alpha-adrenergic receptors.
Moreover, it temporarily relieves nasal congestion caused by the common cold, sinusitis, hay fever and allergies.
Pharmaceutical spray: Uses, side effects, interactions
Patients need to use Pharmaceutical nasal spray as directed on the product packaging or use as directed by the doctor.
Accordingly, the patient should blow his nose gently before using the medicine. Furthermore, he can use one finger to seal the nostril on the side that does not spray. Similarly, you need to keep the head upright, put the spray head in one nostril, proceed to spray, and at the same time Breathe in through your nose.
Take a few strong breaths to make sure the Pharmaceutical spray gets deep into your nose, repeating these steps for the other nostril as needed. Moreover, avoid spraying in the eyes or directly into the nasal septum.
Rinse the spray head with hot water or wipe with a clean tissue after each use.
Note that Pharmaceutical nasal spray only works to relieve temporary discomfort, so do not arbitrarily use more sprays or use it for longer than directed by your doctor, as this may increase the risk side effects appear.
Also, do not use Pharmaceutical nasal spray continuously for more than 3 days, otherwise it may cause nasal congestion again. Symptoms of nasal congestion include: prolonged redness and swelling inside the nose and increased runny nose. If this happens, stop using Pharmaceutical spray and consult your doctor or pharmacist.
