LONGMONT -- Just in time for allergy season, SinOptim LLC, introduces ResQRinse® -- a revolutionary, new sinonasal irrigation system designed to provide comfortable and all-natural relief for people suffering with sinus conditions and allergies --without the gagging, choking, burning and airway contamination often caused by other rinsing methods.
An estimated 70 million people worldwide suffer from allergies and chronic sinusitis. And countless adults and children alike endure hay fever, congestion and sinus irritation from dust, fumes, pet dander and poor air quality, not to mention the many challenges of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) patients and those who suffer with asthma and Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
Despite the proven health benefits of doctor-recommended saline irrigation to help patients breathe freely, sinonasal rinsing is often met with poor compliance.
Patients frequently report that traditional options such as the centuries-old neti pot and other commercial saline nasal lavage methods leave them choking and gagging due to more saline solution going down their throat as opposed to coating the nasal cavity.
ResQRinse is designed to eliminate the negative side effects of traditional sinus rinsing devices. Invented by Dr. Stephen Chandler -- a board certified ENT who has completed over 20,000 sinus procedures -- ResQRinse is the first sinonasal irrigation system to activate a natural physiological process called choanal occlusion.
With its innovative Nasal Lock™ design, ResQRinse directs saline solution to the sinus canals -- not down the throat. Using the same anatomy that allows a person to effectively inflate a balloon, ResQRinse isolates the nose from the throat, airway and lungs, directing saline solution to gently flow in one nostril and safely out the other -- without the dreaded gag.
The Nasal Lock design creates a natural barrier between the nasal passages and the back of the throat to allow a user’s breath pressure to control the device. (View this video demonstrating how Nasal Lock technology works.)
“Sinonasal irrigation is one of the most important proactive, therapeutic measures for allergy and sinus sufferers,” said Chandler.
“In my work treating both recurrent acute and chronic sinusitis patients, I’ve found that patients are aware of the health benefits of rinsing, but are reluctant to comply, largely due to the choking, gagging and other uncomfortable experiences associated with nasal rinsing devices. This is why I invented ResQRinse.”
To help clear and stabilize the lining of nasal passages and promote healing of sinus cavities, ResQRinse ensures the maximum amount of saline solution reaches the sinus cavities and nasal passages where it can do the most good.
The soft palate elevation that naturally occurs during the process of blowing -- as well as the ability to vary breath pressure -- offers the additional benefit of protecting the Eustachian tubes from saline contamination and subsequent hearing fullness.
And unlike the neti pot and other rinsing devices that require an awkward turn of the head and neck to administer, ResQRinse is designed to be used while in an upright position, further enhancing comfort and safety for both adults and children.
“With ResQRinse, we are excited to revolutionize rinsing and meet a significant need in the market for a method that makes sinus and nasal rinsing a truly fast, comfortable and all-natural experience,” said Dana Willett, president of SinOptim.
“ResQRinse is made in Colorado where we know first-hand the challenges of sinus irritation and pressure and how debilitating the symptoms can be for people of all ages, particularly those with active lifestyles. It’s our mission to make it easy for patients to follow doctors’ prescribed treatment protocols, and most importantly, to enjoy breathing freely.”
