Oral Care & Colostrum Kits

Use of Oral Care and Minimal Enteral Nutrition (MEN) protocols have grown to become valuable care options for the critical care
neonatal patient. NeoMed offers Oral Care and Trophic Kit options and components that are designed for optimum clinical impact.

Oral Care Kits

Oral Care Kits are a crit­ical part of a neonatal VAP-prevention bundle imple­mented by many crit­ical care units. According to the American Association of Critical Care Nurses, oral hygiene is consid­ered to be an impor­tant inter­ven­tion, in combi­na­tion with other strate­gies, for the preven­tion of ventilator-associated pneumonia.¹ VAP is the second most common hospital-acquired infec­tion among pedi­atric and neonatal inten­sive care patients.²

  • Many NICUs have imple­mented a Neonatal Vent Bundle which includes oral care every four hours for all venti­lated patients.
  • NeoMed’s Oral Care Kits can be customized to include any number and sizes of foam tip appli­ca­tors combined with sterile saline or water.

Colostrum Kits

Proper collec­tion and delivery of colostrum to the neonatal patient are funda­mental to the health and clin­ical outcome of the patient.

  • NeoMed’s custom Colostrum Kits are designed to manage the unique elements of proper collec­tion and delivery of colostrum including the 0.5 mL oral syringe that delivers precise dosing to the patient.
  • To protect and enhance aseptic prac­tice during collec­tion, trans­porta­tion, and dispensing of colostrum, each oral syringe is pack­aged with a hands-free tip cap that promotes aseptic handling and provides a secure
    closure.
  • All kits are config­ured to best meet the needs of your patient popu­la­tion and staff. Oral Care and Colostrum Kits can contain various combi­na­tions of oral swabs, oral syringes, sterile water, or saline.

Trophic Feeds

Oral Introduction Therapy (OIT) or MEN is the prac­tice of feeding minute volumes of enteral feeds in order to stim­u­late the devel­op­ment of the imma­ture gastroin­testinal tract of the pre-term infant.

  • NeoMed offers a full line of custom kits containing various combi­na­tions of appli­cator sizes and syringes to help manage and deliver trophic feeds to the neonatal patient.
