Clinicians sometimes encounter a patient who needs nasal route suctioning but the patient has problems with Nasal Bleeding, Nasal Trauma, Nasal Fractures, Sinus Surgeries, Deviated Septums, MRSA Colonizations in Nares, etc.. The No-Bite V™ serves as a great suctioning alternative to introduce & guide a suction catheter orally instead of nasally.
If a patient has a contraindication to nasal route suctioning (Nasotracheal or Nasopharyngeal), the patient cannot effectively be suctioned in the traditional nasal approach. Inserting a suction catheter orally proves very difficult because many patients bite down, resist the care and push out the catheter with their tongue. If excess secretions & respiratory distress persists, the patient could have to be intubated because they cannot clear their secretions effectively by themselves.
The No-Bite V™ has been proven to help prevent intubations on patients with nasal suctioning contraindications.
Cost savings for preventing an average, non-complicated intubation is $29,200 per patient.
The No-Bite V™ has proven to be a more comfortable route of suctioning in Hospice & Palliative Care.
The No-Bite V™ serves as a more comfortable suctioning method in Hospice & Palliative Care by avoiding the nasal pain, trauma & bleeding associated with nasal suctioning. Many dying patients with Cancer or other diagnosis have very thin blood and are prone to nasal bleeding and nasal trauma.
The No-Bite V™ is easy use and many family members can deep suction their own loved ones at home. Patients with chronic aspirations that lead to aspiration pneumonia can now be pharyngeal suctioned with ease, something that couldn't effectively be done before. Traditionally family members use Yankauer suctions which only suctions the mouth. But with the No-Bite V™, one can suction much further into the pharyngeal area where dangerous aspiration pneumonias begin.
The No-Bite V™ is part of a must have protocol to prevent inadvertent intracranial insertion of nasotracheal suction catheters in Basal Skull Fx. or Transsphenoidal Neuro-Surgery Patients.
Ask your ENT Neuro-Surgeons if they do Transsphenoidal Pituitary Surgeries.
Productivity increases because the clinician will not be wasting time with multiple unsuccessful attempts when a patient has a nasal difficulty or contraindication. With the No-Bite V™ a clinician will avoid coiling of the suction catheter and therefore avoid multiple unsuccessful attempts.
