How to use a nasal aspirator?
Why is nasal aspiration important?
Mucus stagnating in the nose can be the hotbed of numerous problems.
– It inhibits breathing.
– Nasal mucus can get superinfected, the result of which may be the inflammation of the middle ear or the maxillary sinuses. By keeping the nasal passages clean, you can prevent numerous protracted illnesses and inconveniences already at newborn stage. Read more about why to use a nasal aspirator.
Which position should the child be in during the aspiration?
Aspirate the nose of infants after laying them into a stable position and hold their head during the process. If the child is already able to sit, sit them in your lap. In this case, do not lay the child on their back during the aspiration. Watch the instructional videos.
Why is Nosiboo different from every other nasal aspirator on the market?
The most crucial elements of the Nosiboo products are the patented Colibri and Penguin heads. The liquid cannot exit from the inside of the head, safely preventing the nasal mucus from getting into the connecting tube or into the device. That means you won’t have to purchase extra replaceable filters for the daily use of these devices. After use, the patented Colibri/Penguin head is the only part of the device that needs to be cleaned and it can be done within a minute. The Colibri head can be powered in two different ways: as a part of the electric Nosiboo Pro/Pro2, and also with the manual Nosiboo Eco. The Penguin head can only be used as a part of the Nosiboo Go.
Our products feature a child-friendly design besides being highly functional.
Can Nosiboo products be used with infants?
Yes, we have designed our products to be safe for babies.
Are the Nosiboo products suitable for newborns?
Yes, Nosiboo can be used from birth on.
Till what age can the Nosiboo products be used?
The use of the electric devices (Nosiboo Pro/Pro2 and Nosiboo Go) is recommended till the age of 6 while the use of the Nosiboo Eco till the age of 4, but it may be used with older children depending on the thickness of the secretion or the child’s ability to blow his nose on his own.
How often should the Nosiboo products be used?
You may use the products as often as needed although you should stop using the devices if no mucus is entering the Colibri/Penguin head anymore.
Please consult your healthcare provider about when and how often you should clear your baby’s nose. For more information please see the user manuals.
Can the use of Nosiboo products cause allergic problems?
We exclusively use materials that are absolutely harmless to humans. The Colibri and the Penguin head’s nose tip is made of soft, BPA-free material to make sure that it does not irritate the baby’s nose.
Can the Nosiboo products be also used in case of allergy-like symptoms?
Yes, we recommend the use of Nosiboo products to relieve allergy-like symptoms.
Do I need to use a filter for the manual Nosiboo Eco Nasal Aspirator?
There is no need for a filter! Thanks to the Colibri head’s exclusive patented design, the liquid cannot exit from the inside of the head, safely preventing the nasal mucus from getting into the connecting tube or into the mouth of the person performing the suction.
Can we cause injury by aspirating the nose?
The nose tip of the Nosiboo products is made of soft, BPA-free material to make sure that it does not irritate the baby’s nose. The suction power of the electric devices was also developed in such a way as to prevent any injury. Each nasal aspirator from Nosiboo has got a medical device certification; therefore, they are perfectly safe. Watch the instructional videos.
What to do if I could not aspirate all the mucus during a nose cleaning session?
In this case the mucus is most probably too thick. We suggest using saline solution and repeating the aspiration some time later.
How strong is the suction power of the Nosiboo Pro/Pro2 and the Nosiboo Go Nasal Aspirator?
The maximum strength of the suction power is in accordance with the listed values in the international professional recommendations. This strength is perfectly safe and highly effective at the same time.
Can the suction power of the Nosiboo nasal aspirator be adjusted?
The suction power of the Nosiboo Pro/Pro2 Nasal Aspirator can be adjusted to fit the age of the child and the thickness of the mucus.
The suction power of the Nosiboo Go Nasal Aspirator is constant.
The Nosiboo Eco Nasal Aspirator is powered by your own lung, so you can decide how strong you wish or can perform suctioning.
What to do if the device has turned off?
Nosiboo Pro/Pro2: In case of overuse or if insufficient ventilation is provided, the thermal switch switches off the device and will prevent reuse for approx. 50 minutes for safety reasons.
Nosiboo Go: The device turns itself off automatically after 10 minutes of continuous use, but it can be restarted depending on the charge level of the battery.
How can the Nosiboo products be cleaned?
