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.
