Pregnancy launches a radical restructuring of the woman's body, which entails the appearance of a variety of problems. One of them is congestion of the nose. The cause of this phenomenon lies not in catarrhal diseases, but in changing the hormonal background. To alleviate the condition of the patient are capable of vasoconstrictor drops in the nose, for example, Sanorin, often prescribed during pregnancy.

The difficulty of nasal breathing during pregnancy is highly undesirable. Lack of oxygen in the lungs leads to a lack of oxygen in the blood, which nourishes the baby. Hypoxia is very dangerous - it can lead to disruption of intrauterine development. Sanorin opens the nasal passages in one or two minutes and it seems that hypoxia is no longer threatened. But this is not so, the drug does not have a local, but a general vasoconstrictive effect. The blood passes through such vessels poorly, and hypoxia persists.
Sanorin contains naphasolin nitrate, which has a rapid and pronounced vasoconstrictor effect on the vessels of the nasal mucosa, the paranasal sinuses and the nasopharynx. As a result, the puffiness and redness of the tissues is reduced, which facilitates nasal breathing, at the same time the patency of eustachian tubes( auditory canals) is restored.
Nasal drops and a spray with a concentration of 0,1%, which is prescribed for adults and children from 16 years of age. Children's drops with a dosage of 0.05% are prescribed between the ages of 2 and 15 years. There are varieties of the drug for the treatment of conjunctivitis, as well as the content of eucalyptus oil to enhance the effect.to table of contents ^
