Drive Medical Vacu-Aide Compact Suction Unit
When you're short of breath, your first line of defense might be an inhaler or a strong cup of coffee. While these are an effective solution to being short of breath, some people aren't so lucky. There are a number of conditions that can cause fluid to build up in the lungs, leaving you breathless when that first line of defense isn't available.
After fluids build-up, the next step is to use an aspiration device. An aspirator serves as a small vacuum with a long, thin hose that can remove the mucous or other fluids from the airways in a matter of seconds. To give patients the best quality of care, Drive Medical currently provides the Vacu-Aide Compact Suction Unit.
