Linear Medical offers a range of sterile and non-sterile suction tubing made from non-toxic medical grade PVC. Multiple lengths and a soft tubing option when partnered with the Linear Medical yankauer sucker ensures your specific suction needs are met.
Suction catheters are flexible, long tubes used to remove respiratory secretions from the airway. The purpose of suctioning is to keep the airway clear of secretions and to prevent plugging. One end of the suction catheter is connected to a collection container (suction canister) and a device that generates suction. The open end is advanced through the airway (endotracheal or tracheostomy tube) to remove secretions.
