What is a Suction Machine?

A Suction Machine is a device for removing liquids or gases by suction, especially an instrument that uses suction to remove substances, such as mucus or serum, from a body cavity. A suction machine is used to create a partial vacuum. A suction machine is prescribed by your doctor to help remove secretions and mucus from your child’s airways. In addition, a suction machine may be needed when your child  has a moist cough, or is unable to effectively clear secretions from the throat, as in the case of many cerebral palsy children or are having difficulty breathing or feel that you can not get enough air.
