Physiological serum or physiological solution is an essential part of the family medicine kit. This physiological liquid is composed of purified water and 0.9% sodium chloride (salt). Thanks to its isotonic composition, it is tolerated by the cells of the human body.
Multi-purpose, physiological saline in pods is used daily for eye care, nose care and ear care for babies. It can also be used in adults, for the same purposes and for washing wounds.
Clean baby’s nose with physiological serum
Nasal hygiene is essential in toddlers to reduce nasal congestion.
The lining of the baby’s nasal cavity is fragile and sensitive to bacteria, viruses, cold and pollution. It reacts to external attacks by producing abundant phlegm that must be evacuated regularly in order to avoid infection and contamination of all the respiratory tracts.
Physiodose physiological serum accompanies parents on a daily basis for baby’s first aid. To wash your baby’s nose with physiological saline, here are some tips:
- Tilt your head to the side.
- Gently insert the tip into the upper nostril and press lightly on the single dose.
- Repeat the operation for the other nostril.
- Straighten your head to let the phlegm flow out, then wipe off the excess.
- Do not blow your nose violently during the 10 minutes following administration.
In infants, instill the product with minimum pressure to avoid any risk of contamination of the middle ear.
Made from purified water and sodium chloride, physiological serum is sterile and preservative-free. It is applied up to 6 times a day, depending on baby’s needs.
If your baby’s nose is very congested, you can use the Physiodose baby nose blower: it allows you to blow your baby’s nose effectively. The shape and soft texture of the nosepiece ensure maximum comfort for your baby. The baby nose filter is equipped with a tab to be changed easily and without getting your hands dirty. The Physiodose filtration technology ensures efficient blowing thanks to its high suction capacity. The mucus is aspirated without forcing and remains stored in the reservoir without possible return to your baby’s nose.

For washing baby’s eyes:

- repeat the operation for the other eye with a new compress.
In case of treatment with eye drops, wait 15 minutes before instillation.
For washing baby’s ears:
- rinse the external auditory canal with physiological saline,
- use a dose of physiological saline for both ears,
- wipe off excess liquid with a compress.
