Nasal Aspiration

Nasal aspiration refers to the process of using suction to remove mucus from the nose, which is usually performed using a device called an aspirator. Nasal aspiration is generally used for those who unable to blow out the mucus material on their own (such as babies and those with limited mobility and/or understanding). 


There are a variety of different nasal aspirators available, ranging from the standardized manual bulb syringe tool (which is highly recommended for home use with babies) to the innovative battery operated handheld nasal aspirators and irrigators.
