Nasal LockTM Explained
So, what does “Nasal Rinsing Without the Gag” really mean?
It means our Nasal Lock technology keeps the saline solution in your nasal passages where it can actually do its job!
Nasal Lock Isolates Your Sinuses from Your Throat
The ResQRinse® method of nasal irrigation was designed to inherently circumvent the problems of throat irritation, airway contamination and hearing fullness often present with other nasal rinse systems. Your own breath pressure controls the ResQRinse® device, gently delivering the saline solution into one nostril and allowing it to safely flow out the other. Using the same anatomy that allows a person to safely inflate a balloon—a physiological process known as choanal occlusion—ResQRinse® isolates your nose from your throat, airway and lungs. This method ensures that the maximum amount of irrigation solution reaches your sinus cavities and nasal passages, where it can do the most good.
ResQRinse and Your Ears
Your soft palate (back of throat) elevation that naturally occurs during the process of blowing, as well as the ability to vary your breath pressure, have the additional benefit of protecting the Eustachian tubes from saline contamination and subsequent hearing fullness.
Your Eustachian tube sits in the back of each side of the nose and connects to the middle ear. Under normal conditions, it performs a pressure-equalizing service for managing changes in barometric pressure. Because ResQRinse® permits exquisite flow control, the threat of irrigation entering your Eustachian tube into the middle ear, causing irritating aural fullness, is greatly reduced.
