Mar-Med’s Nasal Foreign Body Extractor
Children sometimes get foreign bodies stuck in their noses, which can be difficult to extract, often requiring sedation or a specialist. The Balloon Extractor is a thin and flexible catheter with a soft balloon at its tip, which can be inflated and used to remove foreign bodies with gentle traction. 33% lower price than the market leader, Balloon Extractor is quickly gaining adoption in medical centers, children’s hospitals, emergency departments and pediatric clinics who don’t want to pay more and don’t want to use traumatic methods like an “alligator forceps” or inferior improvised methods.

Balloon Extractor Added Value
There are numerous methods identified in existing literature for extraction of nasal foreign bodies. Foreign bodies that are placed more posteriorly can be especially difficult to extract. Passing an uninflated balloon catheter beyond the foreign body and inflating the balloon during extraction allows a clinician to apply gentle traction. The balloon acts as a snare when inflated and withdrawn from the nasal cavity. Pediatric, emergency department and urgent care clinicians alike report that this method has saved many patients from unnecessary sedation and the need for specialists. The success of this method led to the design of a specialty device with a thin catheter well suited for the purpose.
Mar-Med’s Balloon Extractor was modeled after the specialty pediatric device and is offered for 33% lower cost. In only a short time Mar-Med has converted many satisfied pediatric clinicians and hospital systems.
