Hi folks
I'm looking for suggestions for a compact Portable Low Suction device suitable for our Globetrotter Transport Incubator system.
Our existing Atmoport N device is faulty and no longer supported. Just wondering what others use.
Many thanks
Tony

Hi Topper
I would take a look at the Laerdal LSU suction device.

https://www.laerdal.com/gb/nav/21/Suction-Units

You can get the batteries from various suppliers and modify the unit to whatever supplier of suction liner that you have.
I have used them clinically and service them and find them robust and practical. You can also have wall mounted docking stations that recharge them, these can also be mounted on various systems such as incubators and trolleys.


30 years since the Chernobyl disaster and yet we still have no super heroes or zombies.

Agreed, even the little LCSU4 is quite good and very small.

Thanks folks. I have looked at the Laerdal products and others. Its a shame everything available (Portable / Battery)seems to be High suction rather than Low.
There's a gap in the market - Portable, compact battery backed low suction for Transport Incubator systems.
Cheers

Yes; battery-powered adjustable low suction - and maybe even intermittent. Take a look at DeVilbiss (lots of .pdf's at the bottom of the page), especially the Series 7310 Vacu-Aide Compact. smile


If you don't inspect ... don't expect.
