Nosefrida Nasal Aspirator - A Parent's Alternative to Medicines on the Verge of FDA Ban
Date:10/5/2007

MIAMI, Oct. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Any well-informed parent knows about the FDA's impending ban on children's cold medicines. With cold & flu season upon us, parents scramble to find other ways to alleviate their children's congestion. Nosefrida nasal aspirator -- a Swedish product recently introduced into the U.S. -- offers a safe and effective defense against sleepless nights and stuffy noses.

According to the FDA, popular medicines such as Dimetapp and Triaminic rarely produce effective results in children under six. Furthermore, the report states that over 120 children have died after taking such medicines. Dr. Tina Caroll-Scott, MD, FAAP, Director of Miami Children's Clinic, says, "the FDA's proposed ban on kids' cold medicines is long overdue. The risk of overdose and lack of efficacy should encourage parents to use more conservative measures. I have personally used Nosefrida on my children and can attest to the ease of use, safety and effective suctioning of the nose."

One popular alternative to medicines has been the bulb aspirator. These are inserted into the nostril, often irritating a baby's sensitive nasal membrane, and producing marginal results. Nosefrida's nasal nozzle is designed to be placed against the nostril, forming a seal, to avoid any irritating penetration. Extending from the nozzle is a fifteen inch plastic tube that allows parents to use their own suction to extract the mucus from their child's nose. This unique configuration enables parents to provide the necessary pressure needed to clear their child's congestion. Disposable filters prevent the user from coming into contact with the extracted mucus.

A child will endure an average of 12 colds within their first two years of life. With approximately 14 million U.S. children in this range, that makes for a lots of stuffy noses, uncomfortable babies, and concerned parents. Congestion interferes with a child's ability to breathe, eat and sleep. "Nosefrida gives the parents
