Nasal congestion and the paediatric patient
Keywords: nasal congestion, paediatric patient, blocked nose
AbstractA blocked, “stuffy” nose is not considered to be a serious condition. However, it has a considerable negative impact on the quality of life of both the parent and child. Infants with blocked noses struggle to breathe while feeding, and young children are unable to blow their noses properly to ease their discomfort. Infants and children with a blocked nose have difficulty sleeping at night too. Parents often seek help on how to clear their child’s nose. The focus of this article is how to ease the discomfort of a blocked nose in a child until the condition resolves.
