Mobile suction devices for airway suctioning
We provide electrical and manual suction pumps for emergency response. Our robust suction pumps render suctioning of the mouth and pharynx area both simple and effective. Clearing of the airways is the first, life-saving step when faced with respiratory disorders and enables initial effective ventilation. That’s why suction pumps are elementary components of medical care, especially in an emergency.
Medical suction pumps for professional suctioning by emergency services
Emergency services are called out to emergencies more than 30,000 times a day in Germany alone. EMS field providers are often confronted with situations which demand the immediate use of a suction device: Respiratory secretions, blood or other foreign bodies such as food result in respiratory disorders in the patient or even lead to apnea.
Clearing of the airways using a mobile suction pump is thus often the first life-saving measure to be taken on site. Every second counts in such an emergency: A reliable suction device not only ensures the survival of the patient, but also enables the emergency services to provide effective and life-saving ventilation. In addition to a suitable manual or electric suction device from WEINMANN Emergency, the use of a suitable ventilator is therefore also recommended for use in an emergency.
Electrical suction pumps for the emergency services
According to DIN EN 1789, type B and C ambulances (emergency ambulances and emergency vehicles) must carry a non-manual suction system with a collection container of at least 1 l. This criterion is met by WEINMANN's ACCUVAC Pro and ACCUVAC Lite electric suction pumps with reusable or disposable canisters. Additional advantage: Vacuum splints and mattresses can be quickly and easily deflated with our electric suction devices for the emergency services.
Their rugged, shock-proof housing means they can withstand a lot of wear and tear. A crash-proof wall mount attaches them to the vehicle, where they are also charged. In an emergency, the devices are quickly at hand. They can be removed from the wall mounting in one easy step and easily taken to the scene of the emergency thanks to the ergonomic carrying handle – and with the integrated lithium-ion battery, even longer periods of use are no problem.
Manual suction devices
The minimum equipment of A1, A2, B and C type ambulances also includes a portable manual suction device. Manual suction devices boast the advantage that, unlike electric suction units, they do not require a power source. Moreover, the small manually operated suction pump can be easily packed away in an emergency case or emergency backpack.
