Suction machine parts and accessories include all equipment required to keep your machine in proper working order. Since suction machines use negative pressure to clear the airway and remove excess secretions, replacing worn bacteria filters can improve airflow and machine performance. Tubing and collection bottles used in suction machines should also be replaced occasionally to ensure tubing connections are tightly sealed and free of any blockages. We have a selection of bacteria filters, collection bottles and replacement tubing for use with suction machines from Devilbiss, Gomco, Shuco-Vac and Medline.
Suction catheters are devices used with aspirator suction machines to remove secretions and saliva in the airway. Some open suction catheters come with a valve on the side, which allows you to control airflow and suctioning. The Yankauer suction wand is a tonsil tip suction device used primarily for removing oral secretions from the mouth. It comes with an optional airflow valve and has an angled design that can easily reach all corners of the mouth.
Drain sponges absorb exudate and fluid from exposed wounds while securing tracheostomy or other indwelling tubing. Using a drain sponge can also reduce skin irritation from tubing or trach collars. Pre-cut and non-woven sponges fit snugly around drain tubes and limit the chance of lint or fibers entering the tube site, which can cause an infection. Fenestrated drain sponges lie flat more easily around tubing without bunching up or allowing fluid to pool around the tubing.
Devilbiss makes portable and homecare suction machines that are used for respiratory suctioning. Devilbiss also has convenient replacement supplies kits if you need to replace several parts of your suction machine. These kits are often cheaper than buying supplies individually and each kit contains a filter cartridge, 800cc collection bottle and two pieces of tubing.
Allied Healthcare Products include portable and homecare suction machines as well as replacement tubing for Gomco and Schuco-Vac aspirators. Portable suction machines can use A/C or battery power and are ideal for mobile patients in hospitals or by EMS. Although Allied only makes model-specific bacteria filters, they do make universal replacement tubing that can be used with both Schuco-Vac and Gomco suction units.
