Our Aspirators can save lives by reaching to patients no matter where they are.
Portable aspirators are an important tool in saving lives fo patients that are treated at home as the first line of defense against aspiration and respiratory obstructions. There are a variety of reasons for suctioning a patient with special needs, but the primary reason is the same for any patient: to avoid hypoxia by maintaining airway patency. Here are some signs and symptoms that may indicate your patient requires suction:
Abnormal respiratory pattern
Obstruction - Determine the nature of the obstruction
Partial - Allowing reduced airflow
Complete - Total cessation of breathing
