1. How does a suction apparatus work?

A suction apparatus, commonly known as a suction machine, removes substances like blood, saliva, mucus, or vomit from a person’s airway. This device helps prevent pulmonary aspiration and aids in breathing. Essential supplies for a suction machine include bacteria filters, collection canisters, and aspirator tubing kits, making it a vital tool for maintaining clear airways and ensuring proper respiratory function.

2. What are the differences between Suction Apparatus single and Double Jar?

The main differences between a Suction Apparatus with a single jar and one with a double jar lie in their capacity and functionality:

  • Capacity: A single-jar suction apparatus typically has one collection jar to hold the aspirated fluids and secretions, while a double-jar suction apparatus has two collection jars. The double jar system allows for more extensive fluid collection capacity.
  • Continuous Suction: With a single jar suction apparatus, the suction process may need to be temporarily interrupted to empty the jar when it becomes full. In contrast, a double jar suction apparatus allows continuous suctioning as one jar can be used while the other is emptied and cleaned.
  • Simultaneous Suctioning: A double jar suction apparatus allows for the simultaneous suctioning of different patients or areas, which can be beneficial in clinical settings where multiple patients need suctioning simultaneously.
  • Backup Jar: A second jar in a double-jar suction apparatus is a backup in case one jar malfunctions or needs replacement, ensuring uninterrupted suctioning.

The choice between a single or double-jar suction apparatus depends on the specific needs and requirements of the medical facility or the patient being treated.

3. How many types of suction are there?

There are several types of suctioning techniques used in medical settings. These include nasal suctioning (in the nose), oral suctioning (in the mouth), nasopharyngeal and oropharyngeal suctioning (in the throat), and deep suctioning. Each method serves different purposes and is employed based on the patient’s specific needs and the areas requiring suctioning.

4. How do you clean a suction machine?

  • Disconnect the machine from the power source and remove any tubing or accessories.
  • Dispose of the collected fluid properly.
  • Disassemble the machine as per the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Wash the collection canister, tubing, and reusable parts with warm soapy water.
  • Rinse thoroughly and allow the components to air dry.
  • Wipe down the outer surfaces with a disinfectant.
  • Reassemble the machine before its subsequent use.
