I have some sanitary concerns after bringing it home from the hospital after surgery.
Is there a danger of bringing home something that's been growing in the hospital
and potentially dangerous after time?
How do you clean (wash) the thing, particularly if you don't have a dish-washer?
I called the company and they were absolutely no help.
They refused to reccommend or advise if it should be cleaned or not
or answer if it could pose a danger or not
and would only comment that it was a "disposable" prescription item.
It seems to me that if you're blowing bacteria from your mouth
into a plastic enclosure where moisture can accumulate,
you risk growing a colony of bugs that can harm you,
even though the few that you're exposed to normally are easily defeated by your immune system.
Has anyone here been advised about these concerns or have some professional knowledge about them?
