Address the risk factors associated with the #1 hospital-acquired infection, pneumonia.¹
When patients enter a hospital, they shouldn’t have to worry about getting sicker. Brushing their teeth and gums is one of the best ways to address risk factors for pneumonia, which can impact all patients, regardless of acuity.2 Our all-in-one, single use oral care system is designed to address the risk factors associated with hospital-acquired pneumonia (HAP) for your non-vent patients.
Removable suction cap allows for easy connection to hospital suction
Ergonomic handle allows patients to easily grip and maneuver brush
Ultra-soft brush removes plaque and debris while being gentle on gums
Sodium bicarbonate treated swab absorbs Corinz solution to help clean the teeth and oral cavity
Corinz, an all-in-one antiseptic solution and mouth moisturizer, helps reduce bacteria
