The No-Bite V

1. Shallow Technique – for more awake patients (DO NOT go deep and gag)

If OK'd by your physician, take out pillow and tilt the head back to facilitate opening of the airway. (Patient does not have to be laying flat!) Pre-Load Suction Catheter first and insert No-Bite V™ into the mouth like a tongue depressor. The No-Bite V™ is bite proof material, so if the patient bites down, the product will not break. Insert suction catheter just a few inches past tip of No-Bite V™ and perform Laryngopharyngeal Suctioning.

2. Deeper Technique – for more Obtunded Patients or Rapid Responses

Take out pillow and tilt patient's head back if allowed, Pre-Load Suction Catheter into device and hold catheter with pointer finger so catheter doesn't fall out from weight of the tubing, push down on patients chin with your opposite hand to prevent patient from biting down on No-Bite V while you insert the device, depress the tongue and insert the suction catheter into the trachea. Only be in mouth=5 Seconds Max and If patient presents with Hunchback or Slouching Posture, place a rolled up towel behind back, across the shoulder blades.

(This is an advanced technique, where all staff are required to successfully perform a return demonstration of Oral Tracheal Suctioning on Dummy Head)
