Vacu-Aide® Compact Suction Unit

 

The Vacu-Aide Compact is a small and lightweight portable aspirator with critical safety and performance advantages. The Vacu-Aide Compact is the smallest and strongest suction unit of its kind, while featuring a convenient carrying bag that provides discrete suction on the go. The Vacu-Aide Compact is ideal for home or hospital use and meets the stringent ISO 10079-1 standards for emergency transport suction. It can be used from its internal battery or directly from the power supply.

  • Meets American Association for Respiratory Care (AARC) guidelines for neonatal, infant, child and adult homecare suctioning
  • Enhanced battery life for up to one-hour operation
  • Meets ISO10079-1:1999 high vacuum, high flow classification

  • Easy-to-read LED bar graph gauge helps caregivers provide precise measurements of vacuum – especially important for pediatric patients
  • Built-in bacteria filter is located in the unit’s bottle assembly; unique float valve prevents backflow into the unit
  • Travel-friendly design meets RTCA/DO-160D Aircraft Standard for Environmental Conditions and Test Procedures for Airborne Equipment (won't interfere with a plane’s navigation system)
  • Manufactured and tested to ISO10079-1:1999 Standard for Suction Equipment, achieving outstanding performance in the following tests:
    • Electromagnetic Compatibility Test – Vacu-Aide does not interfere with or is not susceptible to interference from other equipment such as ventilators
    • Drop Test and Shock Vibration Test – Vacu-Aide is far less likely to be damaged when dropped or shipped
    • Excessive Temperature Test – Vacu-Aide effectively works in a wide range of environmental temperatures
    • Collection Canister and Tubing Collapsibility Test – The DeVilbiss reusable, autoclavable canister provides reliable, consistent performance

 

AARC Guidelines for appropriate subatmospheric pressures:

  • Neonates: 60 - 80 mm Hg
  • Infants: 80 - 100 mm Hg
  • Children: 100 - 120 mm Hg
  • Adults: 100 - 150 mm Hg

 

Negative pressures should not exceed 150 mmHg as higher pressures have been shown to cause trauma, hypoxemia and atelectasis.
