Oxygen Powered Suction Unit
The OXI-vac is a device designed as a suction system for the removal and collection of secretions from a patient.
The OXI-vac is powered by a vacuum, which is created by the Venturi principal: a vacuum is created by a high gas (oxygen) flow through a narrow jet.
Includes a polycarbonate 250mL reservoir bottle marked at 200mL. The narrow neck reduces the likelihood of spillage when removing a used bottle. A spare suction bottle with blue cap is included for rapid changeover.
To remove used bottle, hold the OXI-vac vertically and carefully unscrew. Screw on the blue cap from the stand-by bottle and set aside. Screw the new bottle in place and secure.
