  3. Inhalations . This procedure is a treatment of the respiratory tract with hot steam. It is effective for diseases of the ENT organs: otitis, tonsillitis, pharyngitis and rhinitis. As a result of inhalation, the therapeutic effect occurs not only due to warming, but also to the penetration of beneficial substances to the source of inflammation. For this purpose, decoctions, essential oils and medications are used.

Carrying out procedures for children

The sun lamp 01 is intended for young children, other models are not. This is taken into account when purchasing.

This device will provide the ultraviolet light that a child needs during all periods of the year, especially in autumn and winter. It is designed for home use.

Such a lamp is an alternative to bulky equipment in a treatment room; moreover, there is no need to travel in the cold and frost on public transport.

Children have a large number of toys in their room that cannot be washed daily with special products. This lamp will also come to the rescue. It destroys almost 100% of viruses and microbes that are dangerous to the baby’s body. This applies not only to toys, but to all surfaces in the house.


If a child often plays with animals on the street, then there is a possibility of contracting lichen. In addition, the pathogenic fungus is brought into the house by the soles of shoes.

OUFK Sunshine is needed for a child suffering from allergies and ENT diseases.

If a child has the initial stage of a cold or runny nose, the feet are irradiated. To do this, the legs are extended towards the lamp (10 cm from it), whose damper is open. The duration of the session is 10 minutes, over three days.

When irradiating the nasal mucosa, you must make sure that the nasal flow has stopped. The procedure begins with one minute, each time increasing to three minutes. The session is held once a day for a week.

During a flu epidemic, prevention should be carried out once a day after kindergarten or school for two weeks.


The radiation dosage is determined by the Gorbachev-Duckfeld method. The method is considered simple and is based on the property of generating erythema when the skin is irradiated. One biodose is taken per unit. It is determined in the abdomen and buttocks from a distance of half a meter from the Sun lamp. The dose meter is fixed on the body. Irradiation occurs through the holes of the biodosimeter. There are six of them, each subsequent one opens in a minute. So through the first hole, irradiation takes six minutes, the second - 5 minutes, etc. The result of the procedure is assessed within a day. Clear hyperemia of the skin is taken as one biodose.

When assessing the result, you need to take into account skin tone, age, and condition.

How many hours can you use

Where can you get ultraviolet light in cloudy autumn and long winter?

Useful ultraviolet light will be provided by the “Sun” irradiator, specially designed for home use.

Did your child go to kindergarten and start having frequent acute respiratory infections? For ENT diseases, doctors often prescribe FUF procedures for children of the nose and pharynx. To do this, you need to visit the physical room at the clinic. The procedure itself helps very well, but getting to the clinic in the cold or rain, sitting in line among coughing people is not very pleasant. Using an irradiator, you can prevent and treat flu and colds at home. Recovery will go much faster and without unnecessary medications.

Are you afraid that your older child will bring the flu virus from school, get sick himself, and the younger child, who does not yet attend children’s groups, will catch the flu? Carry out quartzization (disinfection) of the apartment with the “Solnyshko” irradiator, and the virus will not be scary for your family.

And how many toys do modern children have! From large soft ones to small designer ones. How to wash everything? “Sunny” will help again. This device destroys 99.9% of dangerous viruses and germs, disinfects toys, furniture and other household items.

In spring, the incidence of lichen in street animals increases. Without meaning to, we bring this fungus home on our shoes. A pet can become infected, and lichen can be passed on to a child. Ultraviolet light will also cope with this infection.

“Sunshine” is simply necessary for children with allergies and children with chronic diseases of the throat and nose.

The device is lightweight and compact. Its body is made of metal. This provides durability and protection from electromagnetic radiation. A UV lamp is installed in the housing. On the front side it is closed with a flap with a hole for attaching tubes (plastic cones). The kit includes detailed instructions, 3 tubes with holes of different sizes, safety glasses, and a biodosimeter that will determine the individual dose of UV radiation. How to determine it is described in the instructions. To turn on the lamp, just insert the plug into the socket.

The “Sun” irradiator can be used in the treatment and prevention of colds in children over 3 years of age. The exception is rickets in a baby. In this case, the doctor will prescribe the procedure, its duration and number of sessions.

Before use, the irradiator must be turned on and allowed to warm up for 5 minutes.

To disinfect the room, you need to remove the damper and turn on the device for 15-30 minutes. At this time, there should be no people or pets there, and direct light from the UV lamp should not fall on the flowers. Then you need to ventilate the room. Children's toys, bedding, and dust mites are sanitized in the same way.

When the first signs of a runny nose appear in a child, the feet are irradiated with ultraviolet rays. The child should wear safety glasses and lie down or sit with legs extended 10 cm from the device with the damper open. The procedure lasts 10 minutes. Course 3-4 days. Parents often notice that after three sessions of irradiation of the feet, the runny nose goes away and the development of acute respiratory infections stops. You can irradiate the nasal mucosa only after the nasal discharge has decreased - to prevent complications. When irradiating the mucous membrane, it is recommended to gradually increase the daily dose from 1 minute to 3 minutes. The course of irradiation is 5-6 days. The procedures are performed once a day.

During an influenza epidemic, irradiation of the mucous membranes of the nose and throat is carried out for 2 weeks for prevention. The procedure is best carried out after visiting public places, for example, coming from kindergarten or school.
