Helps for saline nasal irrigation, miniaturization and nasal hygiene: Makes 16800 ml (240 oz) Hypertonic 1.8% (w/v) or 33600 ml (480 oz) isotonic solution 0.9% (w/v).
Isotonic Saline is defined as 9 mg of sodium chloride per ml of water. Any concentration higher than this is defined as hypertonic. Limited research shows that a hypertonic saline solution may be more effective in reducing nasal mucosal or nasal lining congestion on a short term basis of a few hours. The theory is that hypertonic salt solution will draw water component out of the congested nasal tissue. It is possible that you may experience temporary burning or stinging with the hypertonic solution. If you experience any burning or discomfort, please use an isotonic solution. For convenience, one Neilmed blue packet in 240 ml of water is isotonic and one green packet in 240 ml is hypertonic.
- Please wash hands.
- Fill the clean bottle with the designated volume of lukewarm distilled, filtered or previously boiled water.
- May warm the water in a microwave in increments of 5 to 10 seconds to avoid overheating the water, damaging the device or scalding your nasal passage.
- Cut the sinus rinse mixture packet at the corner and pour its contents into the bottle.
- Tighten the cap and tube on the bottle securely.
- Place one finger over the tip of the cap and shake the bottle gently to dissolve the mixture.
- Standing in front of a sink, bend forward to comfort level and tilt head down.
- Keeping mouth open, without holding breath, place the cap snugly against nasal passage.
- Squeeze bottle gently until the solution starts draining from the opposite nasal passage.
- Some may drain from mouth.
- For a proper rinse, keep squeezing the bottle gently until at least 1/4 to 1/2 (60 mL to 120 mL or 2 to 4 fl oz) of the bottle is used.
- Do not swallow the solution.
- Blow nose very gently, without pinching nose completely to avoid pressure on eardrums.
- If tolerable, sniff in gently any residual solution remaining in the nasal passage once or twice, because this may clean out the posterior nasopharyngeal area, which is the area at the back of nasal passage.
- At times, some solution will reach the back of throat, so please spit it out.
- To help drain any residual solution, blow your nose gently while tilting head forward and to the opposite side of the nasal passage just rinsed.
