In order to keep a healthy airway, you must remove any mucus that traps dirt and bacteria. Many people can do that by coughing or clearing their own airways. But – when you need a little assistance, CareLinc has the mucus suction machine that you need. A few common reasons why someone might need a suction machine for mucus include:
• Removing any mucus when a person is incapable of doing so on their own.
• Clearing any blood or other secretions blocking the airway.
• Removing a foreign substance that’s stuck in a person’s airway.
Suction Machines & Supplies
There are two basic types of oral and respiratory suction units: stationary units, or those that require electricity to operate, and portable or battery-powered models. Each performs the same basic function. Each type unit has adjustable suction pressures with secretions collected in a separate container. These collection containers can be disposable or semi-permanent.
