NOSA smog filter

USD$

NOSA smog filter is a nasal filter that seals tight, is easy to breathe through and efficiently filters harmful airborne particles such as smog and smoke.The device is effective in filtering out particles in the size range of PM2.5 and larger. These types of particles can cause irritation in the upper respiratory system.

NOSA FILTER SIZE GUIDE

You can find a description for the two sizes Small and Large down below. 
NOSA filter consists of a “filter house” and a “sealing skirt”. The filter house should fill your whole nostrils. The function of the sealing skirt is to seal and make sure no air leaks through on the edges.
Match your nostrils to the size of the filter house.

How does NOSA smog filter work?

NOSA smog filter provides a barrier between the user and harmful particles inside the nasal cavity. The sealing design forces the airflow to pass through the filter media inside the device. The filter media filters out particles in the size range of PM 2.5 and larger, reducing the amount of harmful particles that enter the nose.

NOSA smog filter is a medical device class 1 in Europe and has been clinically evaluated. External lab tests have shown that particles are effectively filtered out when inhaled through the product.

What is smog?

 

The word “smog” was first used in the beginning of the 1900s as a term to describe the mixture of smoke and fog that reduced visibility. At that time, smog was mainly caused by burning coal and was commonly seen in industrial areas.³

Smog often consists of nitrogen oxide which comes from car exhaust and factory emissions, together with at least one volatile organic compound (VOC), usually caused from gasoline or chemical products. The smog is created when these chemicals react together with sun and consists of ground-level ozone and small airborne particles.²

Is smog dangerous?

The ground-level ozone in the smog is considered hazardous, while the ozone in the atmosphere is essential to protect us from the sun’s ultraviolet radiation.²

When humans get in contact with smog it becomes harmful to our bodies and respiratory system, especially to people with respiratory illnesses. Ground-level ozone can also damage lung tissue and cause burning eyes.²

 

 

The effect of fine particles (PM 2.5) and air pollution on humans

Exposure of fine particles can cause short-term health concerns such as irritation in the airways and in the eyes and nose.¹

A daily PM 2.5 exposure can lead to reduced lung function and worsen medical conditions such as asthma and heart disease. Additionally, a long-term exposure of fine particles is linked to increased mortality from lung cancer and heart disease.¹

Air pollution is not just a threat to our respiratory health. Decades of research has come to several conclusions, showing that air pollution is a threat to the overall public health by causing inflammation in human cells as well as oxidative stress. This can lead to chronic diseases and cancer. The research also includes other diseases caused by smog, such as diabetes; obesity; and reproductive-, neurological-, and immune system disorders.¹

Research has also shown that there is a connection between the exposure to air pollution and the development of chronic diseases as well as cancer. Air pollution has even been classified as a carcinogenic substance by the International Agency for Research on Cancer of the World Health Organization (WHO).³

PM stands for “particulate matter” and consists of a mixture of different particles (solid and liquid) in the air. The number after PM stands for the size of the particles. PM is usually divided into several different categories. Two categories frequently used are PM2.5 and PM10. PM10 are inhalable particles in the size range of 10-2,5 micrometers such as pollen, dust and pet dander. PM2.5 are inhalable particles in the size range of 2.5 -0,3 micrometers. They are extremely small. In fact, a single hair from your head is around 30 times larger than a PM2.5 particle.

NOSA smog filter is designed to filter out particles in the size range of  PM2.5 and larger.

NOSA smog filter is a medical device class 1 in Europe and has been clinically evaluated. External lab tests have shown that particles are effectively filtered out when inhaled through the product.

NOSA filter is a single use product and shall not be washed or re-used. Use up to 8 hours. After usage, the product is recycled as plastic.

The product is made of TPE plastic and a PP filter media.

Do you live, work or travel to areas affected by smog?

NOSA smog filter is developed for people that wish to reduce the amount of harmful particles that enter the nose. A reduced exposure of particles in the size range of PM2.5 can prevent irritation in the upper respiratory system and in turn prevent respiratory health concerns and other diseases linked to PM 2.5.4

Place NOSA smog filter in your nose before going out and let it do the work for up to 8 hours.
