Hospital equipment supplies: Heavy Duty Suction Pump

Heavy Duty SuctionThe Heavy Duty Suction Pump Machine is an ideal alternative for a doctor’s patients’ suction requirements. According to the World Health Organization’s core hospital equipment supplies publication, “most surgical procedures require suctioning to remove blood, gas, tissue, or other foreign materials and irrigating fluids that accumulate in the operative field and obstruct the surgeon’s view.” Portable aspirators such as this one “can be used if there is no central vacuum system or if suctioning is required in areas that do not have vacuum inlets.”

There is a remote but possible risk of burns, electrocution, fire, or injury. To avoid adverse events, do not use near water, use only for its intended purpose, keep the cord away from heated surfaces, never operate while drowsy, and do not use if a power cord or plug is damaged, if the unit is not working properly, or if it has been dropped – especially in water – or damaged.


Although this unit is easy to operate, even a doctor might encounter certain operational problems. To paraphrase Tina Fey, many things are labeled defective only to turn functional once the instructions have been carefully read. For instance:




Unit does not turn on

·         Check power source and connection.

·         Make sure the wall outlet is live.

·         Check that the power cord is not damaged.

Motor runs; no vacuum

·         Check that the tubing connection is secure.

·         Check for leaks or kinks in the tubing.

·         Make sure the float shut-off is not activated.

·         Check for bottle leaks and or cracks.

Low vacuum

·         Use vacuum adjust dial to increase vacuum level.

·         Check the system for leaks.

·         Rotate the vacuum adjust dial counterclockwise and release.
