Video: Nasal Packing

๐Ÿ“šNasal packing is the application of sterile tampons to the nasal chambers.
๐Ÿ‘‰๐ŸฝThe most common purpose of nasal packing is to control bleeding and provide support to the septum following surgery and nasal reconstruction. It is also used to treat chronic nosebleeds.

๐Ÿ‘‰๐ŸฝAs both nostrils are packed, the nasal cavity is completely blocked, preventing the patient breathing through their nose. Therefore, the patient must adjust to breathing through the mouth.
๐Ÿ‘‰๐ŸฝNasal packs are usually removed within 24-48 hours post-op, or when the doctor states.
