Topic: Suction Pumps
When: September 30, 2021 at 10:00 – 11:30 AM (EAT/Kenyan Time)
Experts: Engr. Vincent Ochieng (Kenya) & Dr. June Madete (Kenya)
Suctioning is an essential procedure within multiple hospital settings. In newborn care units, suction pumps are used to remove obstructions from blood or secretions in the mouth, nose or upper airway. A suction pump uses an internal pump to create a partial vacuum in a collection reservoir through which suction fluid is collected.
