Comprehensive Oral Care with Q•Care® Systems

Hospital-acquired pneumonias (HAP), including ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) and non-ventilator-associated hospital-acquired pneumonia (NV-HAP) often start in the oral cavity. Bacteria, including dental plaque, can colonise in the oropharyngeal area, 3 and these pathogens can be aspirated into the lungs, causing infection. These common risk factors put both your ventilated patients and your independent patients at risk for HAP.

Comprehensive oral care for all of your patients from SAGE Products range of innovative oral care products have helped set the standard now recognised in professional guidelines. These comprehensive systems have helped increase compliance and reduce the risk of hospital-acquired pneumonia.

Q•Care® Oral Cleansing & Suctioning Systems address key VAP risk factors with a comprehensive 24-hour oral care focused on cleaning, debriding, suctioning and moisturising the entire oral cavity, while helping you comply with your oral care protocol. It’s also available with Q-Care featuring Sage Oral Solution in a convenient, single-dose bottle, and burst-pouch.
