BEST PRACTICE SOLUTION when nasal suctioning is contraindicated:

nasal suctioning with the no-bite v

Traditional Nasal Suctioning

  1. Nasal Trauma
  2. Bleeding
  3. Painful
  4. Unsuccessful Attempts
  5. Wastes Time


No-Bite V™ Suctioning

  1. Safer - Avoids Nasal Trauma
  2. More effective
  3. More comfortable
  4. Easier to use
  5. Time saving

Clinicians sometimes encounter a patient who needs NT or NP suctioning but the patient has problems with Nasal Bleeding, Nasal Trauma, Nasal Fracture, Sinus Surgery, Deviated Septum, MRSA Colonization in Nares, etc.. The No-Bite V™ serves as a great suctioning alternative to introduce & guide a suction catheter orally instead of nasally.

If a patient has a contraindication to NT or NP suctioning, the patient cannot effectively be suctioned in the traditional nasal approach.

Inserting a suction catheter orally proves very difficult because many patients bite down, resist and push out the catheter with their tongue. If excess secretions & ineffective airway clearance persist, this may lead to an intubation.

Benefits of The No-Bite V

Improves Patient Outcomes

  1. In cases where NT & NP suctioning were contraindicated, The No-Bite V™ has been proven to suction those patients effectively.
  2. In critical situations where patients were short of breath, not effectively clearing secretions and in danger of being intubated, The No-Bite V™ was able to help prevent intubations in conjunction with other treatment modalities.

Creates Cost Savings

Cost savings for preventing an average, non-complicated intubation is $29,200 per patient.

Improves Patient Comfort, Family Satisfaction and Quality of Care (HCAHPS Scores)

The No-Bite V™ has proven to be a more comfortable route of suctioning in Hospice & Palliative Care. It avoids the nasal pain, trauma & bleeding associated with nasal suctioning. Many dying patients with Cancer or other diagnosis have very thin blood and are prone to nasal bleeding and nasal trauma.

Reduce Hospital Readmission Rates by Identifying Risk Factors before Discharge to Home!

  1. History of Chronic Aspiration and Aspiration Pneumonia
  2. Suctioning needs in the Home Care Setting

The No-Bite V™ is easy to use and many family members can deep suction their own loved ones at home. Patients with chronic aspirations that lead to aspiration pneumonia can now be oropharyngeal suctioned with ease, something that couldn't effectively be done before. Traditionally family members use a Yankauer suction, which only suctions the mouth. But with the No-Bite V™, one can suction much further into the pharyngeal area where dangerous secretions linger and aspiration pneumonias begin.

Increase in Clinician Productivity

Productivity increases because the clinician will save about 4 mins/per suction by using a No-Bite V™. Many clinicians waste time with nasal suctioning and multiple unsuccessful attempts. With the No-Bite V™ a clinician can avoid coiling of the suction catheter and therefore avoid multiple unsuccessful attempts.


The No-Bite V Prevents Nasotracheal Suctioning

"I wanted to share these photos of my dad back in Nov 2016 before I even knew about the No-Bite. He was nasal suctioned in the hospital and they caused severe nasal trauma... Ouch! And no, he was not even on blood thinners, just baby aspirin."

"My dad stayed out of the hospital a record 10 Months Pneumonia-Free and Nasal Trauma-Free thanks to the No-Bite Suction!"

"Previously my dad was readmitted to the hospital at least once a month with aspiration pneumonias, but now he is doing much better."
