Mar-Med’s Nasal Foreign Body Remover

Children sometimes get foreign bodies stuck in their noses, which can be difficult to remove, 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

Balloon Extractor | Katz Alternative | Katz Substitute | Katz Extraction | Pediatric Emergency Department | Children's Hospitals | Stuck in Nose | Nasal Extractor | Balloon Catheter | Foreign Body Remover | Pediatric Emergency Device | Kids Urgent Care | Kid stuck in nose | Kid hospital | children hospital
There are numerous methods identified in existing literature for removal of nasal foreign bodies. Foreign bodies that are placed more posteriorly can be especially difficult to remove. Passing an uninflated balloon catheter beyond the foreign body and inflating the balloon during removal 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 The balloon acts as a snare when inflated and withdrawn from the nasal cavity.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.

Our Solution

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.

“We recently used the Balloon Extractor on a toddler and our provider was able to remove the foreign body from the nose easily. This saved the patient from having to be sedated and taken to day surgery for removal.”

Packaging

The Balloon Extractor comes individually packaged in a box of 10 units. The syringe is specially adapted to prevent over-inflation. The catheter comes covered in a protective sheath. Assembly is quick and easy: simply screw the two parts together and begin use.
