1. How long should you use suction?

Adhering to proper guidelines for safe and effective suctioning is crucial when employing a suction apparatus. After inserting the catheter to the appropriate depth, initiate suctioning while gently retracting the catheter in a sweeping motion. It is vital to avoid excessive suctioning, and the recommended maximum suction time should not surpass 15 seconds to minimize potential complications.

After the suctioning process, ensure proper re-oxygenation of the patient to restore adequate oxygen levels. Always prioritize patient safety and comfort during the use of a suction apparatus.

2. How often can you perform suctioning on a patient?

The patient suctioning frequency depends on various factors, including the individual’s condition, the quantity of secretions, and their ability to clear the secretions independently. 

While there is no definitive consensus on the exact number of times, suctioning should be performed, a general guideline is to assess airway patency and consider suctioning at least every 8 hours. This helps ensure the adequate clearance of any excessive secretions and promotes optimal respiratory function. 

Healthcare professionals closely monitor the patient’s condition and adjust the suctioning frequency to maintain airway hygiene and prevent complications.

3. What are the types of suction procedures?

Different types of suction procedures are commonly used in healthcare settings:

  • Oral Suction: Clears secretions or fluids from the oral cavity using a suction catheter or oral suctioning device.
  • Nasal Suction: Clears the nasal passages of excess mucus or fluids through a nasal suction bulb or a specialized device.
  • Tracheal Suction: Removes secretions from the trachea and lungs by inserting a suction catheter into the tracheostomy or endotracheal tube.
  • Gastric Suction: Eliminates stomach contents through a nasogastric or gastrostomy tube to relieve gastric distention or remove excess fluids.

These suction procedures utilize suction apparatus or machines, such as rented suction machines, to remove secretions and fluids effectively.

4. What is the principle of suction devices?

Portable suction machines generate negative pressure, channelled through a special plastic connecting tube called a single-use catheter. The negative pressure creates a vacuum that pulls any blood, mucus, or similar secretions out of the throat.

5. Can you use a medical suction machine at home?

Yes, medical suction machines can be used at home. These devices are commonly utilized for various purposes, such as clearing airway secretions, managing tracheostomy care, and addressing other respiratory needs.
