  • The one the hospital gave me.
    The battery powered ones can irritate the lining of the nose and make the stuffiness worse simply from the swelling that comes from the irritation. So can overusing any aspirator but it's easier to make things worse with the powered ones.

  • Like the above poster said, I use the one the hospital gave me, and overusing ANY aspirator will cause inflammation.

  • I only used the one the hospital gave us. I didn't see the point in buying another one when that one worked just fine.
