Designed with neonates and infants in mind, the Neotech ChinStrap provides a soft, comfortable way to help hold a patient’s mouth closed during respiratory support. The durable material and detachable hook tab strap allow clinicians to customize it to each baby’s head. It doesn’t put any pressure on the ears, and the skin friendly NeoFoam fabric helps wick away moisture and comfort the patient. What’s more, its head strap helps prevent slipping, ensuring safety and reliability.
Step 1 Select proper size by measuring circumference from center of chin, over the ear, to posterior of head.
Step 2 Place Neotech ChinStrap across chin with indentation facing neck and smooth, white side against skin.
Step 3 Position wider, lower portion of split chin strap under chin and upper portion across front of chin.
Step 4 Pull strap toward posterior of head with ears positioned inside ear openings and gently fasten hook tab to strap. Side marked “LEFT” should be under patient’s left ear.
Note: May be trimmed for proper fit. Ensure that strap is not too tight or pressing on ears. Hook tab should completely overlap strap.
Step 5 Replace every 5 days or per hospital protocol, whichever is sooner.
Replace immediately if worn or visibly soiled.
