Devices are sometimes needed to create suction in medicine. Suctioning can avert pulmonary aspiration that leads to lung infections and may be used to clear the air path of blood, saliva, and other secretions so that the individual may breathe. Suction can also be used to remove fluids from the air path in pulmonary hygiene, prevent the growth of microorganisms and facilitate breathing.
Suction can eliminate blood from the operated area in surgery to allow surgeons to view and work on the area. Blood that has accumulated in the skull immediately after an intracranial hemorrhage can also be removed using suction.
Suction devices can be battery or electrically operated or mechanical hand pumps. One type of tip attached to a suction unit is the plastic and rigid Yankauer suction tip. Another is the plastic, whistle or non-rigid French tip catheter.
