1.7 Million patients are affected by Healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) every year in the U.S. The Yankaddy® can change that.
Until now, there has not been a place to store the Yankauer suction instrument before and during its use in a medical procedure. The Yankaddy® offers a reliable place to store the Yankauer suction instrument thereby keeping the environment from becoming contaminated by the Yankauer and spreading healthcare-associated infections. It was designed to be used with one hand, adding safety to patients and convenience to medical providers.
The Yankaddy® is a holster and bracket with a disposable lid/liner designed to retain the Yankauer suction instrument and prevent any undesired movement or unsafe storage of the Yankauer. The reusable brackets easily attach to multiple surfaces including IV poles, bed rails, counter tops, walls, and medical equipment. The brackets feature an adjustable arm for added convenience to the medical provider. The holster features a cut out hole to cinch off the suction tubing to reduce suction noise.
