Emergency Aspirator Model 2510 User Instructions  Commissioning Instructions The Emergency Aspirator is supplied with all the necessary components for immediate operation. The catheter supplied is 9mm internal diameter. A 6mm tube mount is available to suit other types of catheter.  Conforms to EN ISO 10079-2  h Warnings  Areas of Use  Please read all the information in this manual before using the Vitalograph Aspirator.  The Emergency Aspirator has been designed for emergency use by trained medical professionals & first-aiders. It delivers immediate suction where a light portable and efficient source is needed at a moment’s notice. However, it is also suitable for use in hospitals and other medical facilities where powered sources of suction are not available or not convenient, such as the transport of the critical patient to another location in the hospital, in elevators and on “crash cart” cardiac arrest trolleys.  A Continuous use of the Vitalograph Aspirator for a period of time may cause fatigue or repetitive strain injury on the user. A There is a risk of the users’ finger getting caught between trigger and handle, during use of the Vitalograph Aspirator. A Aspirate may eject from the outlet exhaust, during use of the Vitalograph Aspirator. A The Vitalograph Aspirator is intended to be used with Vitalograph components only. A The user should become familiar with the pressure and stiffness of the trigger before using the Vitalograph Aspirator. A The Catheter, Catheter Mount and Filter supplied with the Vitalograph Aspirator are single use disposable components. They must be disposed of and replaced after use. A Before its initial use, the Vitalograph Aspirator should be cleaned and disinfected as outlined in the ‘Post-Use Cleaning and Disinfecting’ section. Introduction The award winning Emergency Aspirator from Vitalograph is designed as a suction device to clear the victim’s oro-pharyngeal airway before & during resuscitation. It is powered by one hand, positioning the catheter with the same hand. This leaves the other hand free for other important tasks such as manipulating the patient’s head and opening the mouth.

It is not designed for use on neonates. Instructions for Use  Aspirate Container  Quick Release Cap Mesh Filter  Post-Use Cleaning And Disinfecting Owing to the situations in which the Emergency Aspirator is designed to be used, for the purposes of these guidelines all parts of the equipment will be considered to be at risk of having been exposed to body fluids. The catheter is at risk of having been in close contact with breaks in skin or mucous membrane, which means it poses a high risk of pathogen transmission. It is therefore manufactured to be a single use disposable. The mesh filter is also manufactured to be disposable. All other parts of the Emergency Aspirator pose an intermediate transmission risk and should be disinfected according to guidelines given below.  The Emergency Aspirator is operated by a simple pumping action of the trigger; fast, long strokes will produce the greatest suction.  Part  Material  The action of the trigger will become stiffer when either the catheter becomes occluded, or when the container is full; the latter does not interfere with the operation. However, more efficient operation can be achieved by emptying the container. The aspirate container is emptied by twisting off the quick release cap of the container. It is advisable to hold the aspirator in such a way as to avoid unwanted spillage while performing this operation. With the cap removed the mesh filter may be simply lifted out to be emptied and cleaned.  Aspirate Container Catheter & Mount Aspirate Container Seal Rear End Cap Seal One Way Valve Aspirate Container Cap Rear End Cap Assembly Mesh Filter  Polycarbonate  When replacing the quick release cap on the aspirate container during use, ensure that the mesh filter is seated properly and hand tighten cap. During operation the rear outlet ball valve should not be obstructed as this will cause the aspirator to malfunction. Care and Maintenance The Emergency Aspirator from Vitalograph requires a routine functional, safety, hygiene and maintenance procedure annually and after every use. The functional check tests the performance of the device, measuring the peak suction and suction hold. Also, check the valves, seals and rolling seal diaphragm. Visually inspect, clean & lubricate all moving parts and replace seals annually, coating with silicone grease. A maintenance log and annual inspection stickers should be used.
