The SWIK
Solution

The innovative SWIK oral suction device offers a continuous, hands-free solution, designed to mitigate risk factors associated with aspiration, and with the patient's comfort in mind.

Whether you need care at home or in a clinical setting, ask us if SWIK is right for you.

Better Quality of Life for Patients, Peace of Mind for Caregivers

SWIK aims to reduce saliva management complications for those who have difficulty swallowing or an inability to swallow.

The SWIK device is discreet. Because of its low-profile design, a patient can be supported with continuous suction of oral secretions inside and outside the home while maintaining a sense of dignity.

Because each SWIK device may be used for several hours without intervention. Independence becomes more possible with SWIK, the portable, hands-free solution.

Constant intervention required by currently available oral suction devices and methodologies can be burdensome for caregivers of those with difficulty swallowing.

Traditional oral suction equipment for patients who can’t swallow provides short-term relief at high costs. The standard suction devices are used intermittently and manually, which can cause damage to the mouth’s soft tissue and other serious problems.

SWIK is a helping hand to both caregiver and patient.

Greater Efficiency of Care by Clinicians

Since each SWIK device is indicated for up to 12 hours, nurses' interaction with patients for oral secretion suctioning may be cut to just two times a day.

Why it’s important to continually manage oral secretions
Proper management of oral secretions reduces the risk of serious complications such as aspiration, increased bacteria in the mouth, infections, and pneumonia. Andrea, a respiratory therapist from Michigan, explains why proper saliva management is a "really big deal" and how SWIK provides a new alternative to Yankauer suction in this short video.
