Nampons™ and Nampons™ Kids are the leading OTC brand for the treatment of nosebleeds

Nampons™ are poised to transform the outpatient management of nosebleeds by bringing the same technology utilized by medical professionals for over two decades to in-home use.

Nampons™ are made of medical-grade, compressed PVA that rapidly expands on contact with blood to provide gentle pressure on the nasal mucosa while absorbing 12x more blood than cotton products. Upon expansion, the foam will topically deliver micro oxidized cellulose, a hypoallergenic pro-coagulant that facilitates hemostasis.

Nampons and Nampons Kids - How It Works

How It Works

Fast and Easy Nosebleed Treatment

Nampons™ and Nampons™ Kids are delivered in sterile, easy-to-open single-use foil packs, making them ideal for first-aid kits and medical bags.

  1. Upon incident of a nosebleed, tear open the foil pack and remove one nasal plug. Insert no more than 3/4th of the way into the nasal cavity
  2. Nampons™ will immediately expand upon contact with blood, providing gentle pressure to slow the bleed. Tilt head forward while applying gentle pressure to the outside of the nose
  3. Micro-oxidized cellulose will help stop the bleed. Remove and discard. Repeat if necessary.
Oxidized Cellulose Study

Oxidized Cellulose

Clinically Proven Clotting Agent

In clinical studies, oxidized cellulose has been proven to be more successful than cotton gauze, commercial gelatin and Celox powder for hemostatic properties. Additionally, studies report that "the OC sponge, due to excellent cytocompatibility as well as antibacterial capacity, could also significantly facilitate wound healing."
