How Do I Use the Laerdal V-Vac Suction Unit?

Laerdal's Manual Suction Unit offers a simple yet effective suction solution for rapid suction in the field, as it is lightweight enough (less than 300g) to be fully controlled with one hand. This makes it an ideal tool to have on hand in a hectic emergency environment, providing powerful suction without being cumbersome or difficult to manipulate.

Powerful Suction Range

As soon as you squeeze the unit, it provides a powerful suction range between 170 - 380mmHg and 70L per minute (LPM). This provides more than enough suction power for emergency response scenarios, and also makes the unit suitable as a back-up suction unit in hospitals and clinics.

Uniquely Safe Suction Tip

To make the unit as safe for patients and simple for medical personnel as possible, it features a unique no-clog suction tip designed to prevent tube occlusions. The tip is made of an extra-soft plastic, helping to prevent any damage to soft tissue as a result of suctioning.
