A suction machine is a medical equipment that is used for removing obstructions from the body such as secretions, saliva, blood, or mucus. It is also known as an aspirator. There are different types of suctioning including oropharyngeal, oral, nasal, nasopharyngeal, and deep suctioning. Secretions are produced in the nose, in the mouth, or the windpipe in clear or white form.
Let's briefly discuss suctioning types.
Firstly, oral suctioning. This is the removal of excess secretions from the mouth. It is done using a hard plastic tube with a handle especially for children who are drooling because they cannot swallow or they have a weak cough.
Secondly, nasal suctioning. This process a catheter is passed into the nostril to be able to secret anything blocking the nasal passage.
Thirdly, oropharyngeal suctioning. This is where secretion is done on the throat by using a thin clear tube or a catheter, inserting it through the mouth and to the back of the throat. It helps when the secretions are at the back of the throat and cannot be removed by the person.
Last but not the least, nasopharyngeal suctioning. This procedure also uses a catheter to remove secretions from the throat by passing the soft plastic tube through the nose to the throat.
Used in small clinics, ICUs, gynaec units, paediatric units among other departments.

This type of machine uses an electric pump to evacuate a bottle or reservoir to which is attached a suction tube. It uses a pressure gauge to facilitate regulation of the vacuum by allowing air to be drawn from the room.
The motor generating the suction is usually close by and uses one outlet. Most of the systems nowadays are calibrated in kiloPascals or kPa with a low vacuum being 30 kPa and high vacuum being 100kPa.
The elcetric suction unit is preferred because it easy to operate, haas low noise, occupies a small space and comes in a modern design.
