Uses of Rubber Bulb Syringe

Removing Earwax: If you are finding it difficult to remove earwax, ear bulb syringes can help. Place your ear in an upward and outward direction so that water can easily enter your ear canal. Hold the nozzle inside the ear and squirt the water into the ear. If you experience any pain after the irrigation, consult a doctor.
Nasal Irrigation: A bulb syringe can also be used to clear a stuffy nose due to allergies or cold. While using bulb syringes, lean over the sink at a 45-degree angle. Place the tip of the bulb syringe inside one of your nostrils. It should go no further than a finger's width. Now, keeping your mouth open, squeeze the bulb so water can enter your nose. The saltwater will go through your nasal passages and drain out from your other nostril or mouth. Don't worry if some water enters your throat; it won't hurt. After the irrigation, gently blow your nose to get rid of the remaining solution. Repeat the procedure with the rubber bulb syringe on the other nostril.
Baby Nose Cleaning: If your baby is finding it hard to breathe, bulb syringes can be used to remove mucus from the mouth or nose. Lay your baby on their back with the head facing the ceiling. Take assistance to hold your baby in this position or wrap your baby in a blanket with arms facing sidewards for stability. With a nose dropper, drop three or four drops of saline in one nostril. Hold your baby in this position for one minute.
Before placing the ear bulb syringe in the nostril, remove all the air out of it with your thumb on top of the bulb. Carefully place the tip of the bulb syringe inside the nostril until it is fully sealed. Slowly release the thumb to let the air back in the bulb. The suction will pull the mucus into the bulb. Take out the bulb and squeeze all the mucus out of the bulb into a tissue. Now, repeat the procedure with the other nostril.
Enema Administration: A irrigation bulb syringe can also be used as a substitute for enema kits to clean the lower part of the colon in those who want a quick colon cleanse without too much water. Moreover, it can also be attached to a colon tube if the liquid needs to be delivered higher up the colon.
Wound Irrigation: Medical practitioners and healthcare providers can use a rubber bulb syringe to remove secretions, clots, foreign particles, or microorganisms from the wound site. In addition, they can also use it to instil medications.

Precautions to Take While Using Irrigation Bulb Syringes

  • If you are using a rubber bulb syringe for your baby, use it judiciously and avoid excessive use. Excessive suctioning can cause irritation or bleeding of the nasal tissues. It is also recommended to perform suctioning after the baby has eaten to prevent gagging and vomiting.
  • After using the syringe, clean it after every use with distilled or sterilized water and allow it to dry completely so that bacteria don't grow on it.
  • Always consult your doctor or healthcare provider before using bulb syringes for nasal irrigation if you or the patient have a sinus infection, facial trauma, or a history of cerebrospinal fluid leak.
  • While using an ear-cleaning bulb syringe, do not use tap water. Use saline water that is neither too hot nor too cold. Also, remember not to insert the bulb too far into the nose or ear, which can cause damage.
  • When using a bulb syringe for wound irrigation, it is important to use the right size for the wound. Using a syringe that is too large can damage the wound. On the other hand, a syringe that is too small may not irrigate the wound effectively.
