What is VAP?
VAP (ventilator associated pneumonia) is a major concern in today's modern hospitals. 90% of pneumonias in ICU are VAP and studies suggest that 1 out of 4 ICU infections is VAP. Not only does this increase ICU stay by 4-6 days, but each case of VAP may cost the hospital as much as €30,000 per patient.
Fight it, control it, prevent it with Oral Care
A combination of oral care treatments in a proper oral care protocol means hospitals can effectively prevent oropharyngeal bacterial biofilm build-up. This in turn leads to a reduction of VAP and aspiration pneumonias and greatly reduces the associated treatment costs.
Oral care helps eliminate plaque and bacteria
Plaque protects the bacteria within it from antibiotics, anti-microbials and host defence mechanisms. Application of a bactericidal mouthwash or antiseptic will only be effec- tive on the free-floating bacteria in the oral cavity. In order to reach the bacteria in the biofilm, this needs to be manually broken up by a toothbrushing action.
Extra small toothbrush for deeper cleaning
The OroCare Mini has been designed with a small atraumatic brush head and soft bristles. It also features a long curved neck, which allows the user to reach all areas of the oropharynx. It is ideal for paediatrics and those with challenging oropharyngeal situations.Product enquiry
The complete all-in-one solution
OroClean Complete is designed for patients requiring a little more attention, such as elderly patients, patients in longer term care or patients with specific requirements. This ready-to-use pack includes:
- Soft toothbrush for attachment to a bag of sterile water or saline. An integral stopcock valve controls the flow of liquid
- Tooth gel for extra deep cleaning
- Oropharyngeal catheter for the removal of paste and debris.
The fast and convenient solution
The product handle acts as a reservoir for the separately available antibacterial mouthwash vials. The mouthwash is released by gently squeezing the handle whilst carefully brushing the patient’s teeth with the soft atraumatic bristles.
Standard suction tubing may be attached to the end of the handle and can be controlled by a comfortably located thumb hole.Product enquiry
