The Suction Shield - Disposable is a crucial part of infection control wherever Yankauer suction is used. The Suction Shield is a Yankauer holder that is precisely and specifically designed to provide a unique, disposable suction tip holster for the individual patient. Easily attached or removed from virtually any bedrail, whether in post surgery, critical care, emergency room or in transport on a gurney. This versatile, brightly colored, wide-mouthed holster serves both patient and caregiver. The Holster is a one-piece device, with the bedrail side providing a strong, flexible strap which ratchets the Holster to the rail. It is easily removed by a simple manipulation of the fingers. An oval opening in body of Holster permits insertion of folded suction tubing to reduce suction noise, while Yankauer suction tip is not in use.
This innovative solution isolates suction implements and can help reduce cross contamination and HAI transmission.
The Suction Shield is a great option for the OR, ER, PACU, ICU and Cath Lab. This product is very important for long term ventilation and sub-acute facilities.
