Nasal Packing Devices Market: Overview

Nasal packing can be defined as the placement of intranasal device for the application of constant local pressure on the nasal septum. Nasal packing adds direct pressure and reduces mucosal irritation, decreases bleeding and enables clot formation around the foreign body. Nasal packing is considered to be the second line of treatment for epistaxis, which is also known as nosebleed, when cauterization is unsuccessful. Nasal packing is used for the treatment of anterior and posterior epistaxis. Traditional nasal packing includes a ribbon gauze, which is impregnated with lubricant or antibiotic ointment. The recent advancements in the nasal packing include hygroscopic foam packing that is capable of absorbing liquid over 10 to 20 times its weight. Upon hydration, these packing materials compress the vasculature.
