Maintaining the mouth clean is an important part of overall health. Bacteria in the mouth can form dental plaque, which has been linked to various diseases that originate in the mouth.
Oral hygiene is recognized as a fundamental factor to avoid aspiration pneumonia and other infections associated with mechanical ventilation. Ventilator associated pneumonia (VAP) is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in intensive care units.
HSI Medical Suction Toothbrush is designed for sputum suctioning and oral hygiene aid to patients who are bedridden, in coma, or under mechanical ventilation. Our product gently clean and suction bits of food and plaque from the mouth of someone who has trouble spitting, therefore lowering pulmonary infection, and preventing VAP through effective oral care.
