A runny 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
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
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.
