    The Anatomy of Sinuses


    • The sinuses are air-filled spaces found in the bones of the head and face.
    • They are connected to the nose on the facial part of the skull where air passes and mucus drains.
    • There are four pairs of sinus cavities(each named after the bone they reside in)

    Sinusitis and it's Symptoms


    • Sinusitis is the swelling and inflammation of the inner lining (mucosa)
      of the sinuses, which may be due to infection, allergy or immune madiated causes.

    • Sinusitis often develops due to upper respiratory infection
      or allergic reactions.

    • Symptoms of sinusitis can be debilitating and

    NeilMed® Sinus Rinse


    NeilMed® Sinus Rinse is the # 1 physician recommended and #1 selling product when it comes to large volume and low pressure nasal irrigation. It is used for upper respiratory conditions such as Sinusitis, Rhinitis, Nasal Allergy, Hay Fever, Common Cold, Flu, etc.

    Saline Nasal Rinse is the first step in daily nasal hygiene and provides relief from the symptoms of excessive mucus production. It is the easiest, inexpensive method to reduce symptoms of sinusitis.

    These products help remove excess mucus, pollutants and allergens from the nasal cavity and sinuses and cause no negative side effects. Also available in extra strength hypertonic packets.

    NeilMed® Sinus Rinse and Corticosteroid Use


    NeilMed® Sinus Rinse is a large volume, positive and low pressure squeeze bottle system. The mixture packets are completely natural and preservative free.

    The system is extremely simple: You add the mixture packet to the NeilMed® Sinus Rinse bottle filled with 8oz. of warm water.

    NeilMed® Sinus Rinse and Corticosteroid Use


    In a recent study, the effectiveness of using saline nasal irrigation along with nasal corticosteroid therapy was investigated.

    The NeilMed® Sinus Rinse system was used to deliver large volume, low positive pressure isotonic sodium chloride solution for nasal irrigation treatment.

    This was in conjunction with intranasal corticosteroid treatment. It was found that these isotonic nasal irrigations significantly improved nasal symptoms and steroid nasal spray use was also reduced.

    Due to the significant improvement in quality-of-life and the effectiveness of the NeilMed® Sinus Rinse system, it is recommended that you use this system of saline irrigation as part of your sinonasal treatment plan.

    NeilMed® NASAFLO® Neti Pot

    NeilMed® NASAFLO® Neti Pot works on the principle of gravity to deliver large volume irrigation. The neti pot system is an ancient method of nasal irrigation that was used as part of yoga practice.

    Fill the neti pot with 8oz. of warm water, add the mixture packet, and mix to create the buffered saline solution.

    This method of irrigation is similar to Sinus Rinse

    Place the tip of the neti pot under one nostril while leaning over the sink and slowly tilt your head sideways so that the top nostril is the one touching the neti pot tip. The water should flow through the nostril and drain out the bottom nostril. Gently blow your nose and then repeat on the other side.

    This system lacks the positive pressure of Sinus Rinse, which may be less effective in the case of thick mucus. However, some patients prefer this system because they feel it is a more gentle method of irrigation.

    Questions that may Arise


    Q. What kind of water is safe to use?

    A. From the beginning, NeilMed's directions of use have always stressed the importance of using clean and previously boiled, distilled or filtered water through a 0.2 micron filter for nasal irrigation. Our product brochure clearly notes that using tap water is not recommended. Please do not use tap or faucet water when using NeilMed's nasal wash devices unless it has been previously boiled and cooled down. We do not recommend using drinking tap water for nasal rinsing unless you boil it or run through a filter of 0.2 micron size. Tap water is not always safe and depends on its source, and it is impossible to designate all areas as “safe water” for nasal irrigation.

    Q. How often should I irrigate? 

    A. Since no drugs are used and there are little to zero side effects, irrigation can be done as often as you’d like. However, NeilMed® recommends not rinsing more than twice a day as this usually provides no additional benefits.
    If you are producing a larger amount of mucus than normal, you may want to irrigate more frequently and this may provide additional relief from congestion. This is often the case when you have a sinus infection.

    Q. Do I have to irrigate every day?

    A. Though it is a good idea to make nasal irrigation part of your daily hygiene routine, it is okay to irrigate on a need basis only. You may find the need to irrigate more essential when you have an infection or during allergy season due to congestion or the build-up of mucus.

    Choice of Hypertonic products for use who prefer higher concentration of solution

    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 your convenience, one NeilMed® blue packet in 240 mL of water is isotonic and one green packet in 240 mL is hypertonic.
