Respiratory diseases, airway obstructions and breathing difficulties are potential indications for a temporary or permanent tracheostomy in infants, children and adults alike. Airway suctioning is necessary, for example, to keep a tracheostomy tube clear and the airways free. Furthermore, airway suction is needed for clearing the airways after an accident or for patients with other respiratory difficulties.
Medela designs its airway suctioning pumps to ensure that patients’ quality of life remains as high as possible. Medela’s pumps offer rapid vacuum build-up, are lightweight and portable and are easy for patients to use. This is especially important for patients who have been discharged from hospital and now face lengthy spells of home care. Being self-sufficient can have a positive impact on their mental state and reduce the need for intensive care. For the respiratory medical team, the pumps are also easy to explain and maintain.
