CSF Otic Insufflation Powder
CSF Otic Insufflation Powder is a simple, effective method for dry-powder treatment in managing chronic otits media and, in some cases, of otitis externa.
CSF Powder includes two antibiotics: chloramphenicol and sulfamethoxazole, and the antifungal fungizone (amphotericin B). CSF-HC contains the same active ingredients as CSF, but also includes hydrocortisone to reduse inflammation.
Woodland Hills Pharmacy has available two different insufflator devices to deliver CSF powder to the ear cavity:
Sheehy-House Powder Insufflator: This is used with CSF powder in #4 capsules. Each capsule will normally last between 10-15 puffs. Capsules should be refrigerated, except for the one stored in the insufflator. Insufflator price is $30. Price per capsule is $10. Four-capsule minimum per order.
Accordian Insufflator: Includes 3 grams of CSF powder. Each disposable accordian insufflator normally lasts around 100 puffs and should be refrigerated between use. The accordian insufflator is included in the price of the prescription. Price $60
CSF Powder can also be purchased by healthcare professionals "for office use." Please call WHP for more information.
