Barry's Story

“We lost power in the hospital and nurses started yelling, ‘We need suction!’ People were worried. ICU wanted something used in the rehab unit. There was one trach patient and eight ventilator patients. There were no lights, no electricity, electric units were burnt – generators failed, and people fell apart. Strange things were happening, like moving patients to areas of light (hallway). Only one of the generators was working, which powered one elevator and the only light, in the OR, which was where patients were being moved to.

Luckily, there was one RES-Q-VAC in the ICU, one on the 3rd floor, and one on the 6th floor in the OR where patients were. They worked very well and got us through the night. The RES-Q-VAC was one of the most important pieces of equipment at the moment. I was a very popular guy.”

Donna's Story

“The RES-Q-VAC allows our patients to move around the hospital and get outside to the garden without having to haul the hospital room with them.”

Battery powered suction units are somewhat more costly and you have the weight. Additionally, if these units are not plugged in, they become useless on transport because the battery is not charged. The batteries also run out of power/use and have to be replaced. There is nothing more irritating than to grab a portable suction battery powered unit that is either not charged or the battery is bad, which is an additional expense. Usually, these kinds come with feeding pumps, and/or ventilators, and/or med pumps, oxygen, and an airway bag.

Having one less, more portable unit that can provide suction aids in the transportability of the patient. We can place the RES-Q-VACs in the emergency airway bag along with a Ballard and some saline for rinsing the unit and we are good to go.”
