Presentation: Oral Suction Aspirator Active Ingredients: N/A Indications: N/A Contraindications: N/A Precautions: N/A Adverse Effects: N/A Directions: 1. Hold the baby in an upright to semi-upright position, well secured in your arms, and be sure that the baby is comfortable. 2. Place the tip of the bulb into the baby’s nostril and suck very gently through the mouthpiece, as if you are drinking a liquid from a straw. If needed, you can always use more suction force. The mouthpiece is a one-way valve and will not allow you to blow into the baby’s nose. 3. A pre-treatment with a few drops of saline solution or saline spray in each nostril may help loosen thick mucus before using the NeilMed® Naspira® Nasal-Oral Aspirator (NOA). Mucus from the baby’s nostrils will come out very easily and transfer mainly to the tip, and if excessive, into the bulbous area during suctioning. 4. Repeat the previous steps in the same and/or the other nostril as necessary. 5. Please follow the cleaning and disinfection protocol for the safety of yourself and your baby. 6. Change filter if it is soiled with secretions or after the acute infection is over or every week during use.
