1. Pull plastic tag on neck of via.
4. There are several methods to measure out the required dose.
a) Take the calibrated part of the plastic tube in one hand and place the fingers of the other hand around the cylindrical part of the dropper.
b) Insert the tube marked with an arrow into the dropper. Squeeze the dropper until the solution has reached the desired mark.
c) Withdraw the dropper quickly downwards. Continue to squeeze the dropper while withdrawing.
For dose <0.025mL or dose that cannot be measured accurately using the plastic Rhinal tube
a) Measure required dose using a
b) Transfer dose into the plastic rhinal tube for administration.
For older children and adults:
Hold the tube with the fingers approximately ¾ (three-quarters) inch from the end and insert it into a nostril until the tips of the fingers reach the nostril.
For neonates, infants and young children:
Gently insert the plastic Rhinal tube into a nostril, just far enough so that the solution does not run out. The infant/young child should be held firmly and securely.
5. Put the other end of the tube into the mouth. Hold breath, tilt back the head & then blow with a short strong puff through the tube so that the solution reaches into the nasal cavity. Alternatively, another person can help to blow the liquid into the nasal cavity. Through this procedure, medicine is limited to the nasal cavity and does not pass down into the throat.
For neonates, infants or young children who are unable to self-administer dose, a syringe or a dropper can be used to aid administration
Tilt the baby’s head back slightly. Draw some air into the
1mL tuberculin syringe and re-insert the syringe into the other end of the tube. Slowly push the plunger of the syringe so that the air inside the syringe would push the solution into the nasal cavity.
