... the nose, head down position. No improvement so far. I saw an article in Medscape, "Drug Delivery to the Nasal Sinuses," (1/27/14) stating, in part, "When delivery devices were analyzed, large volume (>50mL) irrigations showed improved penetration into the paranasal sinuses ... Low volume devices, including sprays, drops and nebulizers, failed to reliably penetrate and distribute into the paranasal sinuses , regardless of the patient's surgical state." Can someone amplify this for me, especially in regard to what device is considered "high volume." Neilson Jacobs
In 2012 I had my 4th sinus surgery at UAB, First they gave me a steroid shot three days from surgery then a predisone pack it helped but not enough then he put some steroid on a tiny piece of something up there on the left side because it was still swelling some and I had to go back in a week and he took it out, then I lay head off bed and did a drop of budesonide 0.6mg after I washed out with Neil Med sinus rinse, for a month, slowly I got better, I still washout twice a day half with the saline water the other half add the budesonide to it, it takes a long time, she needs to get the swelling under control and her drops will work then, steroids will eat your bones low dose is best for daily use .I tried the nebulizers and sprays they did not work for me either, speak with her Doctor on help to get the swelling down, the problem is if your swelling the liquid want go through, Oh and I just use the Neil Med bottle, had sinus problems for thirty five years. hope I was of some help to you, and your wife is feeling better soon.
