Epistaxis Devices with RAPID RHINO Technology

EPISTAXIS

Overview

For anatomies big and small, our line of epistaxis products accommodates patients’ individual needs by offering anterior and posterior options in a range of sizes.

Epistaxis products incorporate RAPHID RHINO technology, a proprietary blend of CarboxyMethyl Cellulose (CMC). This CMC-infused fabric contains self-lubricating properties that when wet take on a gel consistency for ease of insertion and removal. The ultra-low profile of our epistaxis solutions quickly conforms to anatomy, and provides a gentle, even compression to the nasal area.

  • Quickly conforms to nasal anatomy
  • Provides gentle and even compression to areas of epistaxis
  • CMC-infused fabric is designed to prevent adherence to tissue or blood clots upon removal
  • Available in a wide range of sizes
