A yankauer suction catheter is one of the most commonly used mucas removal instruments for doctors and patients alike. Sometimes during an emergency situation, or in tracheostomy patients, the bronchial tube can get filled with fluid (saliva, vomit, blood, etc)and it is necessary for the doctor, or the patient to suction it out before it is aspirated into the lungs. This is where the suction catheter comes in. It is disposable, made with flexible tubing and is connected to a suction device that is used to drain the fluid from the bronchial tube and the mouth. The tubing is measured in French sizes (ex. 6 fr or 10 fr) and, like this straight packed catheter by ReliaMed, is made to be inserted as easily and painlessly as possible.
