Catalina Healthcare introduces NasalCEASE®, the quickest and most convenient way to stop nosebleeds. Now sufferers of chronic, acute and sports-related nosebleeds, regardless of the cause, have an over-the-counter alternative to tissues and nose pinching. NasalCEASE® will stop a bloody nose quickly, allowing sufferers to quickly get back to what they were doing.
NasalCEASE® is easy and painless to use. Nosebleed sufferers just twist the soft fiber material, pack it in the nasal cavity, and go on with their activities. The unique characteristics and design of this natural based bio-polymer –100% calcium alginate – provide the benefits nosebleed sufferers need. As soon as NasalCEASE® comes in contact with blood, calcium is released. Calcium is a coagulant which actively aids in quickly stopping the nose bleed. Calcium continues to be released until the bleeding has completely ceased.
Calcium alginate can absorb up to twenty times its weight. As a result, 90-plus percent of nosebleeds can be effectively treated with just one NasalCEASE® packing. The nose bleed sufferer can easily insert NasalCEASE® and forget about it until the recommended removal, thirty minutes later.
As NasalCEASE® absorbs blood, the sodium in the blood changes the packing from its dry form to a moist or gelified mass that doesn’t stick to new clots. So when NasalCEASE® is removed, clots are not torn and there are no rebleeds.
Research shows that 30% of all U.S. households have one or more sufferers of frequent nosebleeds including children and adults of all ages and both genders. Many sufferers experience nosebleeds several times each week. Some of the groups of people suffering from recurring nosebleeds who will benefit from NasalCEASE® include: people with Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia (HHT); those taking blood thinners, including millions taking a baby aspirin daily; allergy sufferers, particularly those taking nasal allergy medications; people with blood-based diseases such as hemophilia and Von Willebrand's disease; cancer patients being treated by chemo or radiation therapy; and women during pregnancy.
NasalCEASE® is 100% safe, without side effects and without any contraindications with other medications. NasalCEASE® is sold in boxes containing five sterile packs. Each sterile pack treats one nose bleed. The individual sterile packs can be conveniently stored and can be easily carried in a purse or pocket, ensuring easy accessibility whenever and wherever a nosebleed should occur.
Dr. Terrance J. Kwiatkoski, M.D., ENT of Bullhead City, AZ, recommends NasalCEASE® to his patients.

NasalCEASE® is available in the first-aid section at national chain pharmacies such as CVS/pharmacy, and independent pharmacies. If a pharmacy does not carry NasalCEASE®, they can order it from their wholesaler for customer pick-up within twenty-four to forty-eight hours.
