6ft Patient Tubing for the DeVilbiss VacuAide Portable Suction Machine (Single)
DeVilbiss VacuAide Suction Machines represent some of the most effective, portable suction available, particularly for home use. In order to flexibly apply this suction to patients, the 6ft Patient Tubing is a long and flexible connector for use with a yankauer or catheter.
What Is the Purpose of This Patient Tubing?
The tubing connects the canister of your suction machine to your patient, often with the help of a catheter or yankauer. It connects directly to the non-filter opening on the canister. Its length makes it exceptionally flexible and versatile, while its transparent plastic allows you to monitor liquid flow.
Which Suction Units Can This Tubing Be Used With?
This six foot tubing is suitable for use with either of the DeVilbiss VacuAide Suction Machines:
Can I Wash This Tube Between Uses?
For use by the same patient, and in cases where they are not considered contagious, it is possible to wash this tubing with warm soapy water between uses. This allows it to be used for multiple uses while maintaining appropriate hygiene.
How Often Should I Change This Tubing?
As a single use item, the six foot patient tube should be changed in between patients. It should also be changed if it begins to show any signs of wear or degradation. For usual use with one patient – although this varies highly by circumstance – it will probably need to be changed around every two to three weeks.
How Long Is This Tubing?
This is a six foot tube (182cm). It offers plenty of flexibility and reach to match the full range of applications of DeVilbiss Suction Devices.
Are There Any Bundle Options Available?
For better value this tubing can also be bought as a pack of five.
Is This a Genuine DeVilbiss Replacement Part?
Yes, this is the same patient tubing which is supplied with an original purchase of either DeVilbiss VacuAide devices. This means you can be certain it will be fully compatible with your device and perform reliably.
