Suction catheters are flexible, long tubes used to remove respiratory secretion from the airway. The purpose of suctioning is to keep the airway clear of secretions and to prevent plugging. One end of suction catheter is connected to a collection container (suction canister) and a device that generates suctions. The open end is advanced through the airway (Endotracheal or Tracheostomy Tube) to remove secretions. Suitable for removal of secretion from mouth oropharynx, trachea and bronchial tubes.
