What means use for an irrigation of a nasal cavity
The choice of means depends on a specific problem. Sharp rhinitis — antibacterial means, a chronic congestion are good — it is worth stopping a choice on solution of sea salt. There is a set of recipes of preparation of medical structure.
The most known way – isotonic solution, prepares from 1 l of prokipyachenny water and 10 g of rock salt. Before application liquid should be filtered. Despite simplicity of preparation, readily available components means is very effective. It is impossible to use not boiled tap water — the risk of complications is possible.
Structure for an irrigation from sea salt without dyes, aromatic additives. It is necessary to mix 2 tsps (without hill) salt with a glass of warm boiled water, to stir before dissolution of kristallik, to filter. Use of strong solution can do much harm, so easy to provoke strong puffiness of a mucous membrane.
Infusion of medicinal herbs removes an inflammation, kills pathogenic microflora. To prepare it, use a camomile, linden flowers, a sage, an eucalyptus, a calendula. It is necessary for 1 tbsp of a dry grass or mix of herbs to fill in with boiled water liter, to insist 20-35 minutes. To filter, the received liquid to wash out a nose 2-3 times a day.

It is important to pick up means effective, not defiant allergic reaction, intolerance at the specific person.
As it is correct to carry out procedure
The easiest way — to gather palms the prepared solution, to bend over a sink or a basin, serially to involve liquid that one nostril, closing a finger the second, another.
The second way — use specially intended a chaynichka with a long nose. If such it wasn't succeeded to get, it is worth adapting any suitable teapot of the small size which is available at home. There to pour solution or infusion of herbs, to bend over a sink, having a little inclined the head to the right. To enter a nose of a teapot into the top nostril, thus liquid has to start pouring out from the lower. Then to incline the head to the left, to do the same with other nostril. It is better to hold the breath that solution didn't go further to airways.
I bore in a false manner to carry out washing of a nasal cavity a syringe or the syringe about 200 ml. Frequency of procedures has to be 2-3 times per day though everything depends on a concrete situation. With the preventive purpose it is possible to do washing of a nose 3-4 times a week, also after visit of places with a large number of people where the probability to catch an infectious disease is great.
If there is a strong congestion and lack of natural breath because of hypostasis mucous, it is necessary some minutes prior to carrying out procedure to dig vasoconstrictive drops. After restoration of breath to begin washing. The neglect this rule often causes complications as liquid together with the bacteria which are present at it from a nose gets to acoustical pass.
After carrying out procedure a couple of hours it is impossible to go outside.
How to do washing of a nose to children
By age till 1 year don't do to kids washing. Acoustical passes at them anatomic the too wide. Large volumes of liquid, especially under pressure, can lead to emergence of serious problems. To little children solution is dug in on couple of drops in each nostril. It allows to make slime of more liquid, then it is simple to remove it with the special device – a nasal aspirator. It is possible to use a syringe, the syringe of the smallest volume. Till three years to children clear a nose as to babies, only the amount of solution can be increased till 7-10 drops.
After three years to the child wash out a nose from a usual syringe, the syringe, a teapot, the volume of solution needs to be taken less, than for the adult. Pharmaceutical preparations in a set with the special batcher are convenient for application.
The correct carrying out won't do harm to health though there are certain contraindications to application. States when it is impossible to carry out an irrigation:
- existence in respiratory organs of tumors;
- at big puffiness of a mucous membrane, lack of free breath;
- weak vessels of a nasopharynx – bleeding is possible;
- otitis — an inflammation of a middle ear, injury of an eardrum;
- the nasal partition bent;
- allergy to solution components.
It is impossible to forget that abuse of procedure of washing of a nose can lead to violation of normal microflora of a cavity of a nose.
At serious problems with health it is better to talk to the doctor, to discuss need of application of these actions after that to start treatment.
