Aspirators, Emergency
Scope of this Product Comparison
This Product Comparison covers battery-powered portable emergency aspirators that are used in
airway emergencies in the hospital and in the field. Pneumatically powered units and manual units that
do not use batteries are excluded.
For more information on aspirators, see the following Product Comparisons:

Aspirators, Uterine

Purpose
Portable emergency aspirators are used to remove
obstructing secretions, blood, or vomitus from a
patients airway to keep air passages to the lungs
open and to allow spontaneous or mechanical
ventilation. Suctioning can be either oropharyngeal
(to prepare for emergency intubation or to remove
secretions from the upper airway above the glottis) or
tracheal (to remove secretions and to maintain the
airway of an intubated patient).
In the hospital, these aspirators are useful in areas that do not have access to the central vacuum
supply and in areas where the central system may be inadequate.
In emergency medical services (EMS) use, emergency aspirators are usually used for oropharyngeal
suctioning. In some areas, emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and paramedics are trained in
intubation and advanced airway maintenance in which, after suctioning, a rescuer intubates the clear
airway with an endotracheal tube and performs tracheal aspiration. Tracheal aspiration may also be
required during interhospital transport of intubated patients.

Principles of operation
The typical components of battery-powered emergency
aspirators include a suction (vacuum) pump, tubing (catheters),
regulators and gauges, a collection canister, batteries and a
charger, and a carrying case. These units can rest on a storeroom
shelf, on a bedside stand in the hospital, or on a shelf in the
ambulance.

Aspirators, Emergency

WWW.DEZMED.COM

Vacuum pumps
The main component of an emergency aspirator is the vacuum pump, which creates the suction
necessary for aspiration. The pumps of most emergency aspirators are diaphragm pumps, in which a
mechanical drive flexes a rubber diaphragm back and forth in a chamber, alternately increasing and
decreasing the chamber volume and lowering and raising the pressure (see Figure 1). One-way valves
direct compressed air to the exhaust outlet and
allow suctioned air to enter the vacuum inlet.
Some units, however, use rotary-vane pumps,
in which sliding vanes move volumes of gas in
a rotary motion (see Figure 2). This type of
pump increases the volume of the chamber
between vanes on the inlet side to draw in gas
and then compresses the gas as it approaches
the outlet.
The vacuum level of some emergency
aspirators can be adjusted from a high setting
for rapidly clearing the oropharynx to a lower
setting for performing traumatic tracheal
suctioning. Most units reduce the vacuum level
by bleeding air into the system.

Figure 1. Diaphragm suction pump

For oropharyngeal suctioning, the portable aspirator should provide a vacuum level of 400 mm Hg
(typically 500 mm Hg or more) with the collection canister in place and the suction tube occluded. Freeflow of 25 L/min is also recommended. (Free-flow is the flow achieved when the tubing is completely
open and the vacuum level is zero.) Rapidly suctioning the most tenacious vomitus and/or mucus
encountered in patients is one of the most demanding applications of portable aspirators; therefore,
meeting this requirement is essential. For a given suction tip and hose, this depends on reaching a high
vacuum level in minimum time. The unit should be able to increase suction from 0 to 300 mm Hg in 4
seconds or less.
Most units have vacuum regulators and
gauges that allow the delivery of variable
suction levels suitable for either
oropharyngeal or tracheal suctioning. Certain
models have a regulator but no gauge;
instead, pressure graduations are marked on a
regulator control screw to allow the operator
to set the collection canisters approximate
vacuum level.
The aspirated materials are collected in a
disposable or reusable canister connected
between the patient and the suction source.
Figure 2. Rotary-vane suction pump
Disposable aspirate bags are placed inside the
collection canister. Reusable canisters are
typically used with liners to allow for easy and safe cleaning.
Overflow protection is often provided to help prevent aspirate from entering and polluting the pump,
controls, and environment and from contaminating personnel. Some aspirators feature combination
float/rubber splash guardsas part of the regulator in the canister lidto protect against overflow, while

others may have mechanical shutoff systems in the canister top to prevent overflow. In some cases, the
disposable canister can also be equipped with a hydrophobic or bacterial filter. Users should be aware
that filters will reduce the maximum flow rates.

WWW.DEZMED.COM

Batteries and chargers


Most portable emergency aspirators use
rechargeable lead-acid gel-cell batteries;
others use nickel-cadmium (Ni-Cd) or nickelmetal hydride (Ni-MH) battery packs. To
charge their batteries, the units draw power
from an AC line, from an ambulance DC-toAC inverter, or directly from the ambulances
12 VDC electrical system.
Some units are equipped with a lowbattery alarm light. Some aspirators have
indicators that light when the battery charger
is connected both to the unit and to wall
power, allowing quick confirmation of proper charger connection and internal connection to the battery
circuit. Certain models are available with an optional manual pump in case battery power is lost;
however, the manual pump is practical only if an extra person is available to operate it.
Portable aspirators are usually supplied with a carrying case. The two most typical styles are hard
plastic and soft-pack cases. A portable hard plastic case can protect the pump from mechanical shocks
during EMS use; a soft case, although not as durable as a hard case, is usually lighter.

Reported problems
To reduce the risk of trauma resulting from excessive vacuum levels in tracheal suctioning, the
portable emergency aspirator should be able to limit the suction applied to the tubing to a lower level
(e.g., 80 to 120 mm Hg) than that used for oropharyngeal suctioning and should consistently maintain the
level within 10%, regardless of vibrations and other mechanical disturbances. Errors in displayed vacuum
levels result from both gauge inaccuracy and poor placement of the gauge in the system to measure
vacuum. Typically, a gauge will be most accurate if it is located at the canister. A gauge placed near the
pump can produce falsely high readings. To check the maximum vacuum level at a given regulator
setting, the user should read the gauge when the suction catheter is totally occluded.
Units without shutoff devices may allow aspirated material to flow through the pump, eventually
forcing it to stop. This could cause suctioning to be interrupted for several minutes while the canister is
emptied, the pump is cleaned, and the unit is restarted. Cleaning or overflow may also expose users to
infectious material. Smaller-capacity canisters can increase the risk of overflow and may need to be
changed more often, especially in models without adequate overflow protection. If overflow occurs,
however, the system should be easy to clean and to return quickly to service.
Infection control practices require that aspirate not be released routinely into the environment.
Compared to disposable canisters, reusable canisters pose greater infection risks during handling and
require many safeguards when emptying, cleaning, and disinfecting. Operators should use universal
precautions, including wearing gloves, face shields or masks, and gowns, when performing these
procedures. Hospitals are usually better staffed and equipped for this service than EMS areas; however,
even hospitals usually choose disposables. Manufacturer instructions for disinfecting disposable

equipment, as well as for disinfecting the suction pump, should be strictly followed to prevent crosscontamination. In addition, used canisters and other disposables must be disposed of in accordance with
state and local medical waste regulations.
Larger units can be difficult to carry and remove quickly from their cases at an emergency site. Units
with limited storage space can be difficult to pack and to close without crimping the hose. A crimped
hose may cause problems during use because the vacuum inside the hose could cause it to collapse and
restrict flow. Some units include hose wraps to help alleviate this problem, but unless they are wrapped
carefully, hoses can be difficult to untangle.
Exhaust from some pumps is vented inside the case and could be partially occluded by an object
pressing against the outside of the case, possibly diminishing the performance of the aspirator.
Users should also be aware that vibrations caused by the vacuum pump may cause a portable
aspirator to move or walk during use when placed on a flat, smooth surface.
Battery-powered devices will often be less dependable than suction regulators used with a hospitals
more reliable central vacuum system. Therefore, battery-powered aspirators should not be installed on
hospital crash carts unless they are serving areas where the central vacuum system is inaccessible or
unreliable. For example, ECRI Institute recommends that at minimum, one crash cart in the hospital
(typically in the emergency room) be equipped with a portable emergency aspirator and be used to cover
public areas of the hospital that are not served by the central vacuum system.

Purchase considerations
ECRI Institute recommendations
Included in the accompanying comparison chart are ECRI Institutes recommendations for minimum
performance requirements for emergency aspirators. Purchasers must first determine the intended
applications of the aspirator; some units are designed only for oropharyngeal use, while others can also
be used for tracheal aspiration.
Emergency aspiration may require moderate to high vacuum and flow rates. Units should be able to
provide suction of at least 400 mm Hg at maximum settings to remove tenacious secretions but should
also allow lower vacuum levels to help prevent tissue damage. Also, the aspirator should be capable of
reaching a vacuum level of 300 mm Hg in 4 seconds or less. Vacuum gauges and vacuum-limiting
devices (e.g., regulators) are helpful in allowing application of appropriate and safe suction levels.
Vacuum gauges should be both accurate and easy to read. Collection canisterswhether disposable or
reusableshould hold at least 1 L (1,000 cc) of liquid and should prevent overflow of aspirated material,
which may clog the aspirator and should be considered infectious.
Since emergency aspirators are commonly used outside the hospital setting, they should be easy to use
and transport. Units should weigh less than 6 kg (including the carrying case and all accessories),
although models intended solely for crash-cart use can weigh more. Fully charged batteries should power
the unit at maximum vacuum for at least 30 minutes, and both audible and visual warnings should alert
the user when batteries are nearing depletion. Integral battery chargers are preferable to separate units to
prevent loss of the charger. All controls and connections should be clearly labeled.

Other considerations
Case designs preclude some emergency aspirators from crash-cart use, especially if the case is an
integral part of the unit. Some units are relatively heavy and less convenient to carry, which is a
consideration if the aspirator is to be used by EMTs.

Vacuum regulators or gauges are optional on most units. If the unit is to be used for oropharyngeal
suctioning only, purchasing models without these options will reduce costs and simplify operation.
However, if a vacuum gauge is included, users should install it properly, in a manner that does not cause
falsely low readings that result in higher-than-intended vacuum levels. For proper measurement of
vacuum levels, the end of the tubing must be occluded. Users considering the use of relatively high
vacuum levels (120 mm Hg) for tracheal suctioning should keep this in mind; trauma can result from
excessive vacuum levels.
Most units with disposable canisters can accept at least some alternative manufacturers canisters.
These standard canisters may be more convenient to order, and they offer the user a choice of suppliers.
However, installed filters supplied with the canisters will differ; some may severely limit airflow rates.
The cost of disposables should be weighed against the cost, time, and infection risks associated with the
disinfection of reusables.
The aspirator should be easy and intuitive to turn on, adjust, and operate. A quick and simple method
of setting the unit to maximum vacuum for oropharyngeal suctioning is desirable. It should be
uncomplicated to empty or exchange canisters and continue to operate the pump without significant risk
of instrument or operator contamination. Disposing of the canister and its contents should be easy, with
minimal risk of spills or contamination.
One unit uses Physio-Control LIFEPAK defibrillator/monitor battery packs, which can be maintained
in the same charging systems as the defibrillator/monitor batteries. This may be convenient for users of
LIFEPAK defibrillator/monitors and chargers, although sufficient chargers and batteries must be
available for both devices.
Disconnecting and reconnecting the unit at the recharging station should be convenient; the connection
should be secure, even if performed in a hurry. An indicator should show whether the charger is
connected to a power source and to the battery. An indicator of when the battery is ready (fully or mostly
charged) is desirable, as is a means to continue operation (e.g., by exchanging batteries) in the event of a
low or failed battery during use.
As with any device to be used for resuscitation, portable suction units should undergo proper
acceptance testing by operators and servicing staff to ensure satisfactory performance. Units being
considered for use aboard transport helicopters may require more rigorous testing than those for
ordinary ground-based use. It has been reported (Dahlgren et al. 1997) that electromagnetic disturbances
in excess of a maximum stipulated level produced by an aspirator motor could affect the performance of
helicopter instrumentation, and vibrations from the helicopter could adversely affect the aspirator circuit
boards.

Cost containment
Because emergency aspirators entail ongoing operational costs, the initial acquisition cost does not
accurately reflect the total cost of ownership. Therefore, a purchase decision should be based on issues
such as life-cycle cost (LCC), discount rates and non-price-related benefits offered by the supplier, and
standardization with existing equipment in the department or hospital (i.e., purchasing all emergency
aspirators and/or collection containers from one supplier).
An LCC analysis can be used to compare high-cost alternatives and/or to determine the positive or
negative economic value of a single alternative. Because it examines the cash-flow impact of initial
acquisition costs and operating costs over a period of time, LCC analysis is most useful for comparing
alternatives with different cash flows and for revealing the total costs of equipment ownership. One LCC
techniquepresent value (PV) analysisis especially useful because it accounts for inflation and for the
time value of money (i.e., money received today is worth more than money received at a later date).

Aspirators, Emergency
Conducting a PV/LCC analysis often demonstrates that the cost of ownership includes more than just the
initial acquisition cost and that a small increase in initial acquisition cost may produce significant savings
in long-term operating costs. The PV is calculated using the annual cash outflow, the dollar discount
factor (the cost of capital), and the lifetime of the equipment (in years) in a mathematical equation.
The following represents a sample seven-year PV/LCC analysis for an emergency aspirator.

WWW.DEZMED.COM

Present Value/Life-Cycle Cost Analysis


Assumptions

Operating costs are considered for years 1 through 7.


Dollar discount factor is 5%.
730 procedures are performed per year with single-use disposable collection containers, PVC
(polyvinyl chloride) tubing, and Yankauer tips.

Capital Costs

Aspirator with charger = $600


Total Capital Costs = $600
Operating Costs

Disposable collection containers = $3,000/year

Disposable PVC tubing = $2,500/year

Disposable Yankauer catheters = $2,000/year


Total Operating Costs = $7,500/year
PV = ($51,138)
Other costs not included in the above analysis that should be considered for budgetary planning
include those associated with the following:

Other disposables, accessories such as bacterial filters, and optional accessories

Contributions to overhead

Inspection and repair costs


As illustrated by the above sample PV/LCC analysis, the initial acquisition cost is only a fraction of the
total cost of operation over seven years. Therefore, rather than making a purchase decision based solely
on the acquisition cost of an emergency aspirator, buyers should consider operating costs over the
lifetime of the equipment.
Prices for disposable tubing and catheters vary greatly, depending on a number of factors, including
type, size, material, manufacturer, and bulk-rate discounts. Many of these disposables can be used with a
number of manufacturers emergency aspirators. The type of aspirator purchased may not necessarily
dictate which disposables are to be purchased, and in many cases, disposables are independent factors
and the LCC will not be affected.
For further information on PV/LCC analysis, customized analyses, and purchase decision support,
readers should contact ECRI Institutes SELECT Group.

Stage of development
Portable emergency aspirators are a mature and stable technology, and revolutionary changes or
improvements are not expected. Manufacturers will most likely continue to develop better and lighterweight, higher-capacity batteries and chargers.

When reading the charts, keep in mind that, unless otherwise noted, the list price does not reflect supplier
discounts. And although we try to indicate which features and characteristics are standard and which are not,
some may be optional, at additional cost.
For those models whose prices were supplied to us in currencies other than U.S. dollars, we have also listed the
conversion to U.S. dollars to facilitate comparison among models. However, keep in mind that exchange rates change
often.

Policy Statement
The Healthcare Product Comparison System (HPCS) is published by ECRI Institute, a nonprofit organization.
HPCS provides comprehensive information to help healthcare professionals select and purchase diagnostic and
therapeutic capital equipment more effectively in support of improved patient care.

WWW.DEZMED.COM

The information in Product Comparisons comes from a number of sources: medical and biomedical
engineering literature, correspondence and discussion with manufacturers and distributors, specifications from
product literature, and ECRI Institutes Problem Reporting System. While these data are reviewed by qualified
health professionals, they have not been tested by ECRI Institutes clinical and engineering personnel and are
largely unconfirmed. The Healthcare Product Comparison System and ECRI Institute are not responsible for the
quality or validity of information derived from outside sources or for any adverse consequences of acting on such
information.
The appearance or listing of any item, or the use of a photograph thereof, in the Healthcare Product Comparison
System does not constitute the endorsement or approval of the products quality, performance, or value, or of
claims made for it by the manufacturer. The information and photographs published in Product Comparisons
appear at no charge to manufacturers.
Many of the words or model descriptions appearing in the Healthcare Product Comparison System are
proprietary names (e.g., trademarks), even though no reference to this fact may be made. The appearance of any
name without designation as proprietary should not be regarded as a representation that is not the subject of
proprietary rights.
ECRI Institute respects and is impartial to all ethical medical device companies and practices. The Healthcare
Product Comparison System accepts no advertising and has no obligations to any commercial interests. ECRI
Institute and its employees accept no royalties, gifts, finders fees, or commissions from the medical device
industry, nor do they own stock in medical device companies. Employees engage in no private consulting work
for the medical device industry.
