The Liquid Used For Nasal Washing?
The doctor wants to ask, which type of IV solution can clean the inside of our nose?
Hello Ririn, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself that Dr. Rio will answer your question.
Washing the nose is a simple and inexpensive method by rinsing the nasal cavity using a saline solution. The salt solution used is generally an isotonic solution such as 0.9% NaCl. NaCl 0.9% liquid is one type of existing intravenous fluids. In this case, its usefulness is to support the improvement of mucociliary cleansing by moisturizing the nasal cavity and removing materials attached to the nasal mucous membranes. Nasal washing can be done approximately 2 times a day by using 30ml of 0.9% NaCl liquid in each nostril.
By doing this nasal wash, various pathogens / germs around the nasal cavity and nasopharynx will be helped out and wasted, mucociliary drainage of the nose will be better helping bring germs to get out and not fall into the deeper layers of the body, maintaining integrity nasal epithelium because nasal epithelium is a natural immunity that contains many antiviral and antibacterial properties.
That's all the answers I can give. Thank you :)
