    Help keep your loved one’s mouth clean by removing bits of food and plaque and excess fluid with our Covered Yankauer. The Yankauer connects directly to your oral suction line and the soft tip is gentle on your loved one’s gums. When not in use, the protective sleeve covers the Yankauer to help protect it from environmental bits of food and plaque.

    Sage's easy-to-use oral care systems help reduce bacterial colonization in the mouth and on the surface of the teeth - a known risk factor for ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP).¹ 

    In fact, two separate studies using our QCare Oral Cleansing and Suctioning Systems as part of a comprehensive oral care protocol saw VAP reductions of 42% and 60%.²³> With multiple products incorporating innovative tools and effective solutions, proven clinical outcomes and effective compliance programs, it's no wonder 93% of all oral care is trusted to Toothette.4

    better than all others

    My husband used these in ICU at Cedars-Sinai for his swallowing problem, so we bought a Gomco suction and these tips to use at home. The tip is covered , so it stays clean when put down and it has a control button right on the handle, unlike others, so you can turn it on and off during use. Worth the extra cost.

    This is the best Yankauer I’ve found for safe oral suctioning. First used on my son when he was hospitalized and remained in a coma. It’s safe, gets the job done and it’s gentle on his mouth and throat. Cover protects it in between uses and has a handy suction control.

    Sage Covered yankaur

    Pros:
    • The best I've found
    Cons:
    • A little pricey
    Excellent product! Softer so when bitten it flexes and does break, or break a tooth. Nice angle, gets back into the throat much better that the stiff hard plastic style. The cover protects the yankaur stem and tip, so it's protected from touching unwanted things. The only type I use.

    I like it because it is covered and is more sanitary. The price is good but the shipping cost need to come down. I have used it in the hospitals and at home. It works fine in both atmospheres. I would like to see them sold in smaller batches. say 10 to a package instead of a case of 100 which I don't need at home. Once again the yanker is far better then any other I have used.

    Love these covered yankauers

    Cons:
    These yankauers are exactly what I was looking for. The plastic sleeve protects my daughter, her nurses, and me from contaminants and germs. The soft tip is safe for her teeth and sensitive parts of her mouth. Sage is a very high quality product. I also use the suction oral swabs. Sage covered yankauers and suction oral swabs are the only brand I will buy. My only gripe is they are very expensive.

    Covered Yankauer with Suction Handle

    Rating:
    Pros:
    • The quality is superior.
    Cons:
    This is the only Yankauer that has a cover which allows it to stay clean. It is uncovered to use and then covered back. I have seen three other Yankauer models and they get dirty from the environment too quickly. I will highly recommend this product.

    Covered (soft) Yankauer

    Rating:
    Pros:
    Cons:
    Insurance only covers those hard plastic Yankauer. My Brother-In-Law has chipped his 4 front teeth using that Yankauer since he bites down hard while coughing out his mucus. Also the hard Yankauers hurt him while trying to suction in the back of the mouth. A couple years back he was in the hospital they used the Soft Yankauer from Sage he liked them so we have decided to save the remaining teeth he has. We change them out daily.

    I use this item for my disabled son who has a trach. It's soft so it don't scrap the inside of his mouth. I loved that it's covered too.

    Nice product

    Pros:
    • covered
    Cons:
    • doesn't separate

    These are similar to what we used in the hospital. The ones our supplier and other hospitals use have no covers. We can't get enough to dispose of them after every use, so they would have to be multiple use. I don't see how you could keep it even relatively clean.

    I put this as a 4 instead of 5 only because the ones we got in the hospital are the blue ones that come apart after the switch. The green ones don't do that. The blue ones are only available in large quantities, though.

    we pay for these out of pocket because they are so much nicer that those hard uncovered ones that we get from home health/medicare. they are a little more flexible which helps get way back in his mouth without choking him.

    My wife has had Strokes that slow or prevent her ability to Swallow. The Q·Care® Covered Yankauer with Suction Handle product is exactly what she needed. This product is flexible not so hard piece of plastic. It has features that I don't see on other Yankauers like an ON/OFF slide switch in the Handle, a retractable Cover to keep the Tip clean, a Handle large enough to easily grip, and cross holes in the Suction Tip to keep from hurting the inside of the Mouth. Off all I have seen, this one is perfect!
