Techniques for The No-Bite V

1. Shallow Technique – Oral Pharyngeal

If OK'd by your physician, take out pillow and tilt the head back to facilitate opening of the airway. (Patient does not have to be laying flat!) Pre-Load Suction Catheter first into the device and insert No-Bite V™ into the mouth like a tongue depressor. The No-Bite V™ is bite proof material, so if the patient bites down, the product will not break. Insert suction catheter just a few inches past tip of No-Bite V™ and perform Oral Pharyngeal Suctioning / Subglottic Suctioning.

2. Deeper Technique – Oral Tracheal
Rapid Response / Obtunded Patient

Take out pillow and tilt patient's head back if allowed, Pre-Load Suction Catheter into device and hold catheter with pointer finger so catheter doesn't fall out from weight of the tubing, push down on patients chin with your opposite hand to prevent patient from biting down on No-Bite V™ while you insert the device, depress the tongue and insert the suction catheter into the trachea. Only be in mouth=5 Seconds Max and If patient presents with Hunchback or Slouching Posture, place a rolled up towel behind back, across the shoulder blades.

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."
