Non-ventilator hospital-acquired pneumonia (NV-HAP) can occur on every hospital unit, including in younger, healthy patients.1
Hospital-acquired pneumonia is one of the most common hospital-acquired infections in U.S. hospitals. In one study, more than half of patients with pneumonia were non-ventilated patients.2 Our patient-specialized systems and kits are designed specifically to remove plaque, debris, and oral secretions.
