The purpose of suctioning is to prevent a patient's airway of plugging up from secretions. Amsino Suction Catheters have a built-in thumb control valve that allows the patient to control the flow of suction.


Choosing and using suction catheters

  • Catheter thickness should never be any larger than half the internal diameter I.D.(inside opening) of the tracheotomy tube.
  • Airways are delicate and care should be taken inserting and removing the catheter. Suction should be used only as you pull out the catheter.
  • Suctioning must NEVER be done for more than 5 to 10 seconds at a time as oxygen is also removed.
  • The patient will need your confidence, support, kindness and love.
  • You will receive training for all suction techniques at the hospital.
