Recently the nasal packing after closed reduction of nasal bone fracture becomes popular procedure. However the nasal packing has adversed effects, which are nasal obstruction, discomfort, swallowing difficulty, nausea, reduction of middle ear pressure, possibility of middle ear effusion and aggravation of sinusitis, etc. During closed reduction, we inserted IV line (Safti set, Boin medica, Korea, 4mm internal diameter) in both nasal inferior meatus for ventilation. IV line could be obtained easily without cost in hospital. The flow of air was satisfactory subjectively and air resistance were tolerable. This method is applied easily without any cost and comfortable for patients.
