It’s the only way you can be sure you got the perfect nose and it was a lot easier than you thought.
A group of nurses from two countries have been using a patented technology to clean the nose of a baby in three days.
The babies nose was completely clean in less than a day and a half, which is unheard of, said Dr. Susanne Lutz of the Department of Neonatal Intensive Care at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
“It’s the first time in a baby’s life where a nasal cleaning has been done on the same day that the baby has been born,” said Lutz.
This technique has been used in Canada and the U.S. to clean babies noses for decades, but experts said it could be a great alternative to more expensive surgery.
Nursing schools in New Zealand have been experimenting with the technique, and Dr. Lutz said they have seen it improve the health of babies and nurses.
We’re really excited that this has become a technology, said Litz.
“I think that it’s a way to get things done faster and more efficiently.”
Nurses from the United Kingdom and Australia have also been experimenting on their noses, and Lutz is hopeful this could be the technology that the rest of the world will adopt.
It’s also been used for some other projects in Australia, including a newborn girl who was given a clean nose and a baby who was not given a nose cleaning.
Lutz said it’s been an amazing experience to work with a team that has been practicing this technique for more than 20 years.
“We have nurses that come in here every day and they’re very happy,” she said.
Dr. Litz says there are many challenges involved in getting a baby nose cleaned and she said the most important thing for nurses to remember is that they’re not going to be able to keep it all to themselves.
She said it can take two weeks for a baby to get all the nose tissue out, so nurses should be prepared to take care of the nose once the baby is born.
