A suction regulator is a device that is used to control the flow of suction in a medical vacuum system. Suction regulators are typically used in hospitals and other healthcare facilities to adjust the level of negative pressure in a suction device, such as a suction catheter or wound drainage system.
Suction regulators typically consist of a dial or lever that allows caregivers to adjust the level of suction as needed. They may be used to increase or decrease the level of suction depending on the needs of the patient and the specific procedure being performed. For example, a caregiver may need to increase the suction to remove a large amount of mucus from a patient’s airway, or they may need to decrease the suction to avoid causing tissue damage.
Suction regulators are an important tool in the delivery of medical suction because they allow caregivers to adjust the suction level as needed to provide the most effective and safe treatment for the patient
