Snotty – nasal aspirator

The precise reasons for the efficiency of nasal aspiration are not well known, although it is clear that the removal of mucus plays an important role in the health cycle.

Damage to the mucociliary transport system is an important factor in the development of sinonasal diseases, leading to a stasis (stagnation) of mucus which contains inflammatory mediators.

Thus hypotheses include that nasal aspiration may decrease inflammation through the removal of mucus, that it may improve mucociliary clearance, and that by removing thickened mucus that cannot be handled by the cilia (fine nasal hairs cleaning the nose naturally) can promote healthy and natural breathing.
