Makes A Difference
There are numerous methods identified in existing literature for removal of nasal foreign bodies. Foreign bodies that are placed more posteriorly can be especially difficult to remove. Passing an uninflated balloon catheter beyond the foreign body and inflating the balloon during removal allows a clinician to apply gentle traction. The balloon acts as a snare when inflated and withdrawn from the nasal cavity. Clinicians report that this method has saved many patients from unnecessary sedation and the need for specialists. The success of this method led to the design of a specialty device with a thin catheter well suited for the purpose.
Mar-Med’s Balloon Extractor was modeled after the specialty device and is offered for 33% lower cost. In only a short time Mar-Med has converted many satisfied clinicians and hospital systems.
“We recently used the Balloon Extractor on a toddler and our provider was able to remove the foreign body from the nose easily. This saved the patient from having to be sedated and taken to day surgery for removal.”Renee Weier BSN, RN
The Balloon Extractor comes individually packaged in a box of 10 units. The syringe is specially adapted to prevent over-inflation. The catheter comes covered in a protective sheath. Assembly is quick and easy: simply screw the two parts together and begin use.
