Example

The Speech Pathologist evaluated John and instructed that he needs Moderately Thick liquid food (Level 2) intake to safeguard his airways.

John’s carer uses the purple spout on the RoseCup, selects Moderately Thick NutriTaste Premix (Level 2) which is clearly marked with a Purple Patch. For peace of mind John’s carer will ensure that the colours of the spout and the food packaging are the same i.e. Purple.

Mixing Instructions

TO BE EXERCISED DIRECTLY BEFORE FEEDING THE PATIENT
As per professional prescription (Speech Therapist / Dietitian)
  • Step 1: Select the correct RoseCup spout size with the matching NutriTaste Premix.

    Colour coding makes this easy:
NutriTaste - Mildly Thick

Level 1

(Spout colour and NutriTaste packaging Green)
Spout opening 0.5 mm for Mildly Thick liquids

NutriTaste - Moderately Thick

Level 2

(Spout colour and NutriTaste packaging Purple)
Spout opening 1.0 mm for Moderately Thick liquids

NutriTaste - Extremely Thick

Level 3

(Spout colour and NutriTaste packaging Blue)
Spout opening 2.0 mm for Extremely Thick liquids

  • Step 2: Pour 250ml cold drinking water in a shaker and add 50g of Premix. Shake vigorously until well/smoothly mixed (about 20 seconds).

    (If you do not have the correct size shaker, you can purchase one here.)
  • Step 3: Pour the content of the Shaker into the RoseCup and firmly screw on the lid and spout cuff.

    • When the lid is screwed on, the breathing hole in the lid should point towards the back handle
    • When the spout and spout cuff is assembled ensure that the 2 small triangles on the cuff and spout face each other.
  • Step 4: Tip the RoseCup with the spout pointing vertically down over a plate. Observe for 10 seconds. Ensure that no content runs or dribbles out of the spout hole.

    (1-2 drops of Level 1 mixture is acceptable)
  • Step 5: With the spout still pointing down, compress and release the bulb of the spout with 2 fingers and observe for a further 10 seconds.

    Only the content of the spout should be expelled onto the plate and no further dribbling should be observed.

Trouble Shooting

  • Too thick:

    If the content does not enter and fill the spout spontaneously.
  • Too thin:

    If the content runs or dribbles out of the spout hole.

Actions

  • Ensure that the correct spout size has been selected for the thickened fluid level.
  • Clean the RoseCup Shaker, dry thoroughly and prepare a fresh mix for testing.
