Secretion Aspirators for Aspirating Blood, Saliva and Secretions
Secretion aspirators not only serve to aspirate secretions, but also blood and other bodily fluids. The creation of negative pressure can suck up liquid through an aspiration catheter using an aspirator pump and then collecting it in an attached container. An aspirator is often used when a patient's respiratory tract is being blocked with saliva, mucus or blood and he, for any reason (e.g. unconsciousness), is not able to cough it out. Secretion aspirators are especially frequently used in rescue services for securing the respiratory tract, as it is absolutely necessary to remove all foreign bodies and liquids from the breathing tubes before attempting resuscitation so as to prevent these things from pressing against the lungs; consequently, causing severe damage. Therefore, aspirators and aspiration catheters are a part of the DIN 13232 approved emergency equipment.
Secretion Aspirators for Stationary and Mobile Use
Secretion aspirators are available with various specifications and are, therefore, suited for stationary or mobile use. Mechanical aspirator pumps are operated with a pedal, making them non-dependent on electricity. This allows them to be easily used outdoors in even the most unpleasant of weather conditions. Electric aspirator pumps are mostly equipped with a rechargeable battery with mobile use in mind. Depending on the manufacturer, they are sometimes available with an automobile cable so that they can be charged while on the road. Based on the purpose of use and area of application, secretion aspirators come with various aspiration strengths, which is measured in litres per minute (l/min). The vacuum pressure is often measured in mmHg.
