Suction devices, also known as airway aspirators, are portable medical devices used to remove obstructing secretions, blood, or vomitus from a patient's airway to keep air passages to the lungs open and to allow spontaneous or mechanical ventilation. Suctioning can be either oropharyngeal (to prepare for emergency intubation or to remove secretions from the upper airway above the glottis) or tracheal (to remove secretions and to maintain the airway of an intubated patient) and suction devices allow for delivery of variable suction levels that can be adjusted by the operator as needed. The typical components of suction devices are a suction (vacuum) pump, tubing (catheters), regulators and gauges, filters, and a collection canister.
These devices can be manually powered, battery powered, or line powered. Suctioned secretions are deposited into canisters of varying sizes that must be emptied when full. These canisters can be designed for single use or reusable by autoclaving the canister between patients.
Overflow protection is often provided to help prevent aspirate from entering and polluting the pump, controls, and environment and from contaminating personnel. Some aspirators feature combination float/rubber splashguards as part of the regulator in the canister lid to protect against overflow, while others may have mechanical shutoff systems in the canister top to prevent overflow.
In some cases, the canister can also be equipped with a hydrophobic or bacterial filter.
