Upper respiratory conditions, such as acute and chronic rhinosinusitis, viral upper respiratory tract infection (URTI), and allergic rhinitis, are common disorders that negatively affect patients' quality of life. Saline nasal irrigation is an adjunctive therapy for upper respiratory conditions, likely originating in the holy Quran. Its use, including indications, solutions, and administration devices, was first described in medical literature in the early 20th century.

Saline nasal irrigation can be performed with low positive pressure from a spuite, or with gravity-based pressure using a vessel with a nasal spout.
