Powerfully effective

Setting the standard for suction units, the Laerdal Suction Unit is used all over the world by countless providers. For ease of use in difficult situations, the LSU has a built in suction indicator for the correct vacuum needed for children, in the form of color coding. In extreme situations the LSU can reach a vacuum of 500 + mmHg and has a flow rate of >25 LPM, exceeding International Standards. Combined with the extra- large dial for ease of use with large gloves, the LSU enables providers to quickly select the correct amount of suction for any given situation. The suction unit’s quiet running and shock & splash proof design makes it an excellent option in nearly all settings.

As part of the ongoing process to improve our products, all LSU orders are now, as of October 10th 2013, filled with the latest Serres configuration. This configuration makes it easier to visualize the fluid volume in the canister, replaces vacuum tubing with the Serres vacuum connector, and has an improved canister holder for easy canister release.

Reusable or Semi Disposable?

The LSU comes in 2 different configurations, so that you can choose the product that best suits your needs. Choose either the Laerdal Reusable canister LSU with completely reusable parts, or the Laerdal preferred Serres configured LSU that comes with a reusable canister and disposable liner to avoid contact with contaminates.

Ready for use

Because the Laerdal Suction Unit automatically charges when connected to an external power source, and charges to 80% after just 3 hours, it is ready for use when needed. For the assurance you need, the LSU device test will tell you in 10 seconds whether the LSU is ready for use in the field. The test includes four important requirements for the LSU to pass.


Converting to our Serres Configuration

Due to the ongoing recall of Hospira liners and canisters, we ask our disposable liner customers to switch to the preferred Serres configuration. Please contact your local Laerdal representative or field office for more detailed information. In our aim to Helping Save Lives, we are trying to make the transition as easy as possible. Kits to convert your unit are being provided free of charge. Please see the video below for easy instruction on how to convert your unit to the Serres configuration.
