An easier way to remove anterior foreign body from the nose without the need for general anesthesia in a primary care setting
Nasal Foreign Bodies (NFB) in children are a common occurrence in India with over 20 million cases each year. In urban areas, these cases are attended to by experienced ENT Surgeons. In rural areas, however, referral pathways to ENTs are often not available, thus requiring GPs or Paediatricians to handle such cases. These physicians often lack the tools to perform the procedure safely and effectively. The result is a 70% failure rate in the first removal attempt and the ensuing clinical complications often require referral to larger hospitals.
Noxeno is a simple, easy-to-use medical device designed specifically for the easy, safe, and quick removal of anterior nasal foreign bodies (NFBs) in children. With LED-based enhanced visualization, a spring-loaded hinge for safe and easy use, and a modular design that allows for sterilization and re-use, Noxeno is designed to allow medical professionals of all skill and experience levels to quickly and safely remove NFBs at the first point of care.
Noxeno is a safe and simple NFB extractor that can be effectively operated by physicians of all skill levels.
