The Laerdal Suction Unit is used all over the world by countless providers as it is:
As a Laerdal Suction Unit user you are likely aware of many of the benefits and features the LSU has to offer but we wanted to remind you of ten of the most overlooked.
The new Coaxial Vacuum Tube is reverse compatible and can be used on any LSU configuration.
The Canister Lid contains a Shut-off Valve that shuts off the vacuum if the Canister is full protecting your unit.
The LSU has an Automatic Power-Save Function that switches off the pump motor when vacuum levels have been continuously higher than 120mmHg for 2 minutes.
The LSU can be equipped with a Coaxial Vacuum Tube with an inline High-Efficiency Filter.
All units delivered as of May 2017 come equipped with the Coaxial Vacuum Tube connector on the main unit.
How to use and run a device test on the LSU as well as assembly, disassembly and cleaning guidance.
For complete cleaning instructions please refer to the manufacturer’s DFU. It is not recommended that tubing be re-used.
The suction unit’s quiet running and shock & splash proof design makes it an excellent option in nearly all settings. In extreme situations, the LSU can reach a vacuum of 500 + mmHg and has a flow rate of >30 LPM, exceeding International Standards.
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.
As 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 ease of use in difficult situations, the LSU has a built in suction indicator, with colour coding, to help ensure the correct vacuum strength is selected for children.
This feature, 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.
