Tapping unit for intermittent aspiration
Intermittent aspiration has become increasingly important in recent years. For subglottic aspiration in particular, intermittent suction offers a number of advantages over conventional, continuous suction. The MEDAP S VAC INT is the first intermittent aspiration tapping unit from ATMOS. It can generate a maximum vacuum of –26 kPa. This tapping unit can be operated either continuously at a high flow rate of 60 l/min or intermittently at a flow rate of 9 l/min. Its suction to non-suction ratio is approximately 15:10 seconds.
