Sorry but there are no data sheets associated with this product.
What would happen without a hydrophobic filter?
Secretion could enter the device, destroying the internal components such as the PC-Board and motor. This would cause the unit to fail, preventing any further patient treatment.
Why have we added an additional filter cartridge to the kit and the device?
The filter cartridge is a hydrophobic filter. The material stops the flow as soon as water enters the filter. This technology protects the VacuAide from over suctioning. As a filter can become occluded through secretion or cleaning solution; having a spare filter on hand is recommended.
What are the recommended cleaning instructions for the unit and accessories?
The 800ml bottle and tubing should be washed using a dishwashing detergent, rinsed thoroughly and then washed again in a warm water and vinegar solution. The 1200ml collection bottle can be autoclaved at a temperature of 121°C. For full cleaning instructions please refer to the 7314 user manual, which is available under the downloads tab.
What are the appropriate guidelines for tracheal and nasopharyngeal suctioning?
Refer to the AARC Guidelines for appropriate sub-atmospheric pressures - See Features section for the guidelines and reference.
Do I need a special voltage converter to use my VacuAide in a foreign country?
A special voltage converter is not needed because the VacuAide has a switch-mode power supply, which automatically adjusts to voltages from 100—240 Volts AC at 60 or 60 Hz. It is, however, necessary to purchase the correct mains lead for the country you are travelling to.
Is there an integrated battery warning signal?
The VacuAide unit features three visual battery signals. The green light indicates that the battery is connected to an external power source; an amber light indicates that the battery is being charged and will go out once the unit is fully charged, and a red light warns of low battery.
How long does the battery require charging for and will continuous charging harm the unit?
The battery should be charged for between 10 and 17 hours. Continuous charging is recommended and will not harm the unit.
How often should the collection bottle and tubing be replaced?
The bottle and tubing are designed for single patient use and should be changed between patients.
How often should the bacterial filter be changed?
The bacterial filter should be changed if overflow occurs or every 2 months, whichever comes first.
Can the VacuAide 7314 be used for gastrointestinal suction?
No. The three main applications for the VacuAide 7305 are nasal, tracheal and oral suctioning. Gastrointestinal suctioning requires automatic intermittent suctioning, and our units provide continuous suctioning.
Can the VacuAide QSU be used for patients of all ages?
The 7314 QSU device has a suction range of 50 – 550 mm Hg which makes it suitable for use with neonates right through to adults. Please see the features tab for AARC suction guidelines.
