Primary Outcome Measures:
  • the Effect of Squeezable Bottle and Syringe on Clinical Effectiveness in Sinusitis Children [ Time Frame: compare 5S-score of both group at 2 week and at baseline visit .compare the mean 5S-score and satisfaction score between both group at 2 weeks after treatment ]
    For 5S-score, we measured the the mean 5-s score of both group at 2 weeks compare to the mean 5-s score at baseline visit and compare 5S-score between group at 2 weeks. The S5- score is a scale assessing severity of sinusitis. It compose of the symptom scores for nasal obstruction, day and nighttime cough, headache and nasal discharge. All symptom were graded from 0(no symptom) to 3 (severe ).The score were summed to give the mean 5S-score.It range from 0 (best possible outcome) to 15(worst possible outcome). 7-point Likert scale for satisfaction score is scale from 1 (indicating unsatisfactory) to 7 (indicating excellent). For satisfaction, we reported the result in the term of 7 points Likert scale and compare these scale between group at 2 weeks after treatment

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • the Contamination in Nasal Irrigation Devices [ Time Frame: at second week after treatment ]
    compare the result of bacterial culture in both group of nasal irrigation devices. We reported in the following item; no growth, gram positive or gram negative or mixed organism

Enrollment: 80
Study Start Date: March 2013
Study Completion Date: May 2014
Primary Completion Date: May 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: syringe 20 ml
nasal irrigation with syringe by using buffer hypertonic saline about 100-240 ml until no nasal discharge
Device: syringe 20 ml
nasal irrigation twice daily for 2 weeks
Experimental: squeezable bottle
nasal irrigation with squeezable bottle by using buffer hypertonic saline about 100-240 ml until no nasal discharge
Device: squeezable bottle
nasal irrigation twice daily for 2 weeks period
Other Name: EEZNIS

Detailed Description:
sinusitis is the one of common diseases in Thailand. Nasal irrigation has been used as an adjunctive treatment.In previous study shown that buffer hypertonic nasal irrigation have more effective to decrease symptom in patient sinonasal disease when compare to normal saline.Until now, there are no clear data comparing the effectiveness on sinonasal symptom of the various devices use in children with sinusitis. The purpose of this study was to compare the effect of squeezable bottle nasal irrigation device with syringe in children with sinusitis in symptom score and satisfaction to nasal irrigation.
