The Epi-Max™ is a two-balloon epistaxis catheter designed to control intranasal bleeding. As a nasal packing, it can be used following septoplasty, rhinoplasty, and other intra-nasal surgical procedures. For epistaxis, the smaller balloon controls posterior bleeding, while the larger balloon handles anterior bleeding. The included syringe is used to expand the balloons with normal saline. The volume of saline injected determines the ultimate size and pressure of the balloons. The result is a controlled uniform pressure to manage bleeding. The integral airway tube provides a passage for breathing while the balloons are inflated. Two lengths are available, 97 mm and 120 mm.
