The Plak-Vac Oral Care System offers unique, custom tailored kits which are oriented to your specific oral care practices. Plak-Vac oral care kits incorporate only those components designated by your oral care protocol, organized and packaged according to the time, frequency and treatment requirements established by your oral care policy.
Formal oral care protocols incorporating a consistent regimen of toothbrushing, cleansing with anti-microbial mouthwashes and moisturizing the mouth have been shown to play an important role in reducing the incidence and rate of ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP).
Experience has shown that oral care on a “prn” basis using components has not been effective in minimizing VAP. Reductions in VAP are realized only when oral care is performed consistently around the clock. The Plak-Vac Oral Care System is unique and provides a custom-tailored approach to facilitate implementation of specified protocols by assuring all components are available at the point of use and at the time required. Available in q2, q4, q6, q8, or any other treatment configuration.
