The SSCOR DCell Suction device is the world’s first and only full size portable suction device powered by off-the-shelf alkaline batteries. This makes it ideal for emergencies when external power sources are not available such as patient surge events and power outages.
It is intended for storage for extended periods in disaster preparedness equipment caches where it does not need to be maintained on charge. The DCell can be adapted to any suction canister currently in use by your facility, so there is no need to stock proprietary cansiters.
Fresh D Cell alkaline batteries, can run the device for 6-9 hours* without the need to recharge. Changing to fresh D Cell alkaline batteries takes about one minute and provides another 6 – 9 hours of run time.
The DCell provides powerful medical vacuum that can be controlled for more delicate procedures such as tracheal suction in adults and neonates. A quarter turn of the regulator gives you any vacuum level between <50 mm Hg and > 525 mm Hg. Airflow is > 30 lpm.
Batteries not included.
*Run time is defined as the period of time that the device generates more than 300 mmHg negative pressure. Total run time typically varies between 6-9 hours. These run time specifications are based upon tests using new Duracell® CopperTop batteries. Run time will vary depending on battery manufacturer, state of the charge, ambient temperature, and age of the batteries.
