What is a suction pump?
A suction pump is the equipment aimed at replacing the physiological mechanism of expulsion of secretions from the respiratory tract, either by:
- Structural alteration (tracheotomy).
- Functional impossibility on the part of the patient (neuromuscular disease).
- The secretions aspirator aims to prevent obstruction and avoid complications that may develop related to the presence of secretions generated in the airway.
During secretion aspiration therapy, it is important to follow the guidelines prescribed by licensed practitioners.
What is the suction pump for?
There are pathologies that prevent the patient from eliminating secretions that accumulate in the airway through expectoration or cough, specifically in the pharynx, trachea or bronchi. This causes secretions to accumulate in the area making it difficult to breathe.
In order to eliminate them, surgical aspirators are used, which are in charge of artificially sucking the retained secretions, managing to maintain the permeability of the airway and avoid diseases such as pneumonia, which is caused by its accumulation.
How does the suction pump works?
The suction pump unit, like conventional vacuum cleaners, creates a negative pressure known as suction. The suction is done with the flexible tubes that are connected to a container, which is where the secretions stop.
With the regulator you can adjust the suction level. There are some recommended ranges according to the age of the patient (babies, children or adults) that are convenient to follow.
