Tips for buying Aspirator, Emergency


  • Installed filters supplied with the canisters will differ with different emergency aspirator models; some may severely limit airflow rates.
  • Using the emergency aspirator should be easy and intuitive, including: turning it on, adjusting and operating it, setting it to maximum vacuum for pharyngeal suctioning, emptying, exchanging or disposing canisters and continuing to operate the pump without significant risk of contaminating the instrument or the operator.
  • When measuring vacuum levels, the end of the tubing must be occluded. This should be kept in the mind of all users using relatively high vacuum levels for tracheal suctioning, because excessive vacuum levels can cause trauma.
  • For emergency aspirator units used for pharyngeal suctioning only, vacuum regulators or gauges are optional. A model without these options is cheaper and simpler to operate. However, if a vacuum gauge is indeed included, it should be installed properly to prevent falsely low readings that will cause higher than intended vacuum levels.
  • All the controls and connections must be clearly marked.
  • To prevent loss of the charger, integral battery chargers are preferred to separate battery-powered emergency aspirator units.
  • The emergency aspirator unit should perform at maximum vacuum for at least 30 minutes when batteries are fully charged. It should provide audible and visual warnings when depletion is close.
  • Emergency Aspirators should weigh less than 6 kg. Units that are used for crash carts only, can be heavier.
  • All the collection canisters, disposable or reusable, should hold at least 1 L of liquid to prevent overflow of aspirated material that is infectious and might clog the battery-powered emergency aspirator.
  • The vacuum gauges and vacuum limiting devices help to ensure appropriate and safe suction levels, and they should be read easily and accurately.
  • The vacuum level of the emergency aspirator should reach 300 mm Hg in 4 sec or less. Emergency aspiration could require moderate to high vacuum and flow rates. It should be able to provide suction of at least 400 mm Hg at maximum settings to remove tenacious secretions, while allowing lower vacuum levels as well, to prevent tissue damage.
  • Emergency aspirator units are commonly used outside clinic or hospital settings, and must be easy-to-use and transport.
