Suction machines, also called aspirators, are medical devices that clear obstructions from a person's airway, such as mucus, saliva, blood, or even secretions. A suction machine ensures that an individual can breathe by preventing secretions from clogging up their airways while unconscious or under medical treatment.
Suction machines can be used for a number of purposes, including:
- The removal of anything from a patient's windpipe and lungs (pulmonary aspiration)
- Blood removal from the airway.
- In many cases, the device is used to remove respiratory secretions from a patient that is incapable of doing so themselves. It may also assist a patient who is vomiting while seizing or unconscious.
This life-saving machine might not be very commonly used, however, it's essential that we understand how to use it appropriately:
Step 1 : Ensure your hands are clean by washing them with soap and water.
Step 2 : Ensure you check your portable suction equipment and that the collection jar has a tight seal.
Step 3 : A flat, dry and safe surface should be used as a mounting surface for the portable suction unit. Turn on the suction unit by plugging it into an electrical outlet.
Step 4 : The suction pressure can be adjusted as needed.
Step 5 : Remove the clean suction catheter from the box and connect it to the tubing while wearing gloves.
Step 6 : The suction machine can now be switched on.
Step 7 : "Bag" the individual. It is necessary for the person to receive additional breaths during suctioning. Squeeze the bag to provide more breaths while attaching it to the person's airway (trach tube). Follow your doctor's directions in this case.
Step 8 : The catheter should be inserted into the trach tube. Before entering the opening, make sure it does not touch anything. If a person is suctioned, they must always have an inner cannula in place. Use your thumb to cover the suction port. Slowly remove the suction catheter. The suction catheter should not be left in the trach tube for more than ten seconds.
Step 9 : Disconnect the suction tubing from the catheter after use. Turn off the unit after rinsing the suction tubing.
