The suction unit will need to be used in situations where the patient’s airway needs to be cleared. This is usually the case to clear the airway when secretions are clogging the airway or risk clogging the airway.
1. Ensure that the suction accessories are set up and attached as shown in the previous section of the training.
2. Activate the suction by pressing the Suction Control Button
3. Deactivate the suction at anytime by pressing the Suction Control Button a second time.
Note: The suction wand supplied with MOVES® SLC™ has a control vent that must be occluded by the operator’s thumb to allow suction to occur.
