A disposable mucus extractor is a medical device that helps remove mucus from the nose and throat. When the person has a cold, sinus infections or during allergy season mucus can build up in the nasal cavities and produce a phlegm that can block the airway or cause infection. There are two types of devices - one is designed to be used by the doctor, the other is designed for the patient to use at home. The one that the doctor uses is more versatile since he or she can use it for patients with different kinds of ailments. However, most people prefer the disposable type because they are easier to use, less messy and disposable.
Mucus can also accumulate in the nasal passages when you are asleep. If this happens, you cannot breathe through the nose and therefore cannot breathe at all. This can result in a number of problems, such as congestion and asthma attacks. The mucus buildup needs to be drained regularly in order to prevent the onset of more serious health problems.
The disposable mucus scraper is a medical tool that is ideal for cleaning the mucus from the nasal cavities. The instrument consists of two parts: the probe, which holds the mucus, and the scraper, which removes the mucus. The doctor or the nurse can help you use the machine. However, the patient should do the cleaning process himself or herself. The first step is to wet the mucus using water and then use a wet washcloth to wipe the mucus from the nose and throat.
To do this, you should inhale steam before hand. You need to inhale the steam for about 10 seconds in order to increase the moistness of your nose. Once you have done this, your nose will become moist enough to collect the mucus. Next, you need to tilt your head forward slightly to take out the excess mucus from your nose. You should also scrape the excess mucus from your nose in order to remove it.
After using the mucus extractor, you should dispose of it properly. Since the machine will produce a lot of mucus, it is a good idea to throw away the collected mucus in a clean, sterilized plastic bag. Before throwing the plastic bag, you should wash your hands with warm water and soap. You should also wipe the inside of your nose with a small cloth that contains rubbing alcohol in order to remove any bacteria that could still be living on the mucus.
In general, a disposable medical adult mucus extractor is considered to be a safe device to use even if it is used for the first time. However, it is still important for you to follow the instructions given in the instruction manual in order to prevent any damage or injury to your nasal cavity or other organs of the body. If the device is used properly, you should notice that there should be minimal damage to your nasal passages and sinuses. If you notice damage to your nasal passages or pain, you should immediately contact a doctor. Don't use a disposable mucus extractor if you have a history of allergies or asthma.
