How nasal irrigation can help when scuba diving
Any scuba diver will know that having clear, healthy sinuses are a vital part of being able to dive successfully. A study of almost 400 divers found that over 90% of cancelled dives were a result of nasal, ear or upper airway problems. Over half reported difficulty in equalizing pressure in middle ears. It is for these reasons that nasal irrigation is now becoming an essential part of a scuba diver's routine and lifestyle.
Nasal irrigation is a simple technique with wide-ranging benefits. It flushes out the nasal passages and sinuses and reduces inflammation. This allows for greater airflow and enables the Eustachian tubes to open far more easily. 69% of divers reported an improvement after using nasal irrigation, and 60% said that nasal irrigation alone allowed them to stop routinely using oral decongestants.
Avoid the frustration of cancelled dives
Nose, mouth and ear problems are the main cause of cancelled dives and even retirement, so try using nasal irrigation for yourself and finding out the difference it can make. You will no longer have to worry about congestion or blocked sinuses and the problems they can bring about when it comes to equalizing. Plus, nasal irrigation has a wealth of health benefits outside of scuba diving.
Why choose the SinuPulse Elite?
Nasal irrigation has been around for hundreds of years and is a widely practised form of treatment for a range of conditions. The SinuPulse Elite takes nasal irrigation to the next level – making it far easier, quicker and more effective than traditional netipots or nasal sprays. You no longer have to have your head at awkward angles to rely on gravity – the SinuPulse lets you keep your head upright and does the hard work for you. You simply use the jet irrigator to flush out the worst, and then use the spray tip to reach the areas that would ordinarily be out of reach for regular netipots and sprays. The SinuPulse offers the most comprehensive sinus irrigation possible, giving more noticeable and longer lasting relief.
How it works
The key to the SinuPulse Elite is its pulsating mechanism, which help stimulate the body in-built ciliary flow. The cilia are designed to prevent blockages and keep your airways free, but the nose can be so congested that they cannot move. The SinuPulse clears out the blockages, and stimulates the cilia back into action, ensuring both a comprehensive irrigation and also long-lasting relief, as the nasal passages can once again defend themselves.
The SinuPulse Elite comes with a unique spray tip – once your regular irrigation is complete, you can use the spray tip to gently moisture your nasal passages and infiltrate areas that are hard to reach, removing any lingering bacteria or mucus that any regular irrigator simply cannot reach. It ensures that your nasal passages are as clear, sanitised and healthy as can be.
SinuPulse Elite – not just for scuba diving!
Regular sinus irrigation will keep your nasal passages and sinuses clear, moisturised and healthy. Not only does it flush out bacteria and viruses once you have sinusitis, but it also removes them before they have a chance to enter your system. Dry, inflamed nasal passages are also more susceptible to infection and viruses so keeping them clear, healthy and moisturised gives you the best possible chance of avoiding sinusitis, as well as many other illnesses such as the common cold and flu. So as well as keeping your passages clear and making equalizing easier, it also has great benefits for your health in general.
SinuAir Salts Included
The SinuPulse Elite now comes supplied with a month's supply of SinuAir. SinuAir is a 100% natural saline solution which provides the most effective relief possible. SinuAir nasal salts are noticeably quicker to dissolve than many alternatives, and its entirely natural composition is in contrast to the synthetic substances used in many over-the-counter saline products. For optimal results from your SinuPulse Elite, it is recommended to use SinuAir Nasal Salts at all times. You can browse the SinuAir range of products by clicking here.
