How to use a Rhinix Nasal Filter. Step by step.
Recommendation: The Rhinix nasal filter will be most effective if you start using it before you experience symptoms. If you start using it after your symptoms have begun, the effect might be delayed.
Before insertion, blow your nose and make sure that it is dry. Insert the device as illustrated. Make sure that the pointy end of the nasal filter is directed towards the front of your nose (see illustration above). Use a mirror until you are comfortable with the process of inserting the nasal filter. Use a mirror to check that the device is positioned correctly (see illustration). The height of the nasal filter can be adjusted using the crossbar. When inserted correctly, you should be able to touch the side of your nostrils without experiencing discomfort. You may need to use both hands to insert the device until you are comfortable with the method.
The nasal filter does not necessarily have to be completely tight against the edges of your nose to be effective. The nasal filter will gradually adapt its shape to the proportions of your nasal cavity whereby you should feel it less and less.
When you want to remove the nasal filter, pull the nasal filter’s crossbar outwards in the opposite direction to the illustrations shown for insertion.
Filter size selection.
Use the size guide above to choose your filter size. If the nasal filter is too big, it may be uncomfortable and we suggest that you try a smaller size. Use the right size for optimum results.
Guaranteed effect. Almost.
We want you to have the best experience with Rhinix. To maximise its effect we recommend that you begin wearing it before onset of your allergy symptoms.
For optimal performance it is important that you choose the correct size. If the nasal filter is too large it might come into contact with your mucosal membrane. If that happens we recommend switching to a smaller size, lowering its position (see the ‘How to use Rhinix’ section) or that you discontinue use.
If you have a nasal septal deviation it might not be possible to place Rhinix optimally and this might lower its effect.
During exercise of moderate intensity you may experience that your nasal breathing becomes laboured. This is normal and will usually occur even when you are not wearing Rhinix. If you feel that it is too uncomfortable with Rhinix inserted remove the nasal filter while exercising.
We recommend not using Rhinix if you have sores, sunburnt or irritated skin around your nostrils.
If you experience hypersensitivity to Rhinix nasal filters e.g. irritation of skin, we recommend that you discontinue use.
Single and individual use only. A nasal filter must be changed at least once a day, though it can be removed and reinserted within each 24-hour period.
Caution: Do not use over sores, sunburnt or irritated skin. Not for children under 6 years of age. Do not use the same nasal filter for more than 24 hours. Do not use during sleep. Disposable. During exercise of moderate intensity you may experience that your nasal breathing becomes laboured. If this is too uncomfortable, remove the nasal filter while exercising. If you feel that the nasal filter gets blocked or if you experience laboured breathing you should remove the nasal filter and insert a new one.
Adverse reactions: Application site reactions or hypersensitivity to RHINIX™ nasal filters i.e. irritation of skin. If a rash or skin irritation occurs, discontinue use. If the nasal filter comes into continuous contact with the mucosal membrane, discontinue use, switch to a smaller size or use the crossbar to lower the nasal filter to a position where it does not touch your mucosal membrane.
Avoid transportation at extreme temperatures (>60°C) and do not store in direct sunlight, as this will change the properties of the nasal filter. Keep in original packaging until use. Please inspect the nasal filter prior to use to ensure that it appears intact with the membrane attached to the frame.
