  1. 1. Laerdal Compact Suction Unit Training Guide Greater Sydney HEMS ASNSW
  2. 2. LCSU 3● Battery powered portable suction unit, up to 45 mins constant use.● 300ml canister, single use.● Variable vacuum 50 – 500mmHg.● Rechargeable and removable battery.
  3. 3. LCSU 3 top Battery low indicatorSuction power mmHg Power on /off Charging (out when External fully charged) power
  4. 4. LCSU 3 Side Filter assembly Graduated 300mL canister. Disposable single use only Tubing attachment Suction control
  5. 5. USE1. Attach tubing and Yankauer to canister inlet.2. Turn on and check suction by occluding outlet – look for green light to 550mmHg.3. Leave off until suction actually needed – (conserve battery and lessen noise)4. Ensure unit is upright to avoid contact of fluid with filter.
  6. 6. StowagePrehospital Trauma Pack 2 (Red).The unit is self contained, including one canister,Yankauer Sucker and tubing length.
  7. 7. Cannister● Canister snaps into place.● Note, if filter becomes wet, the suction will cease to protect the internal motor.● Always use in upright position to maximise available volume
  8. 8. ● Use coin or similar to open Batteries housing.● Remove Battery and disconnect cable.● Replace with fully charged battery.● Battery can be charged within unit.● Device can run while being charged● Charge duration 5 hours max● Battery life – 45 mins maximum continuous use.
  9. 9. Important Notes● The suction will cease if the filter becomes wet, this protects the motor.● Avoid canister content from coming into contact with filter, eg by careless handling.● The low battery warning indicates < 5 mins power.● If suction fails consider moving to alternative, eg Vehicle, Aircraft, Bridge.● The catheter tip 60mL syringe is available in the intubation kit as a last resort.
  10. 10. Usage● This device is to be utilised on all RSI if vehicle suction is not practical or available.● The 300mL canister may fill rapidly, source alternate suction if likely, by moving patient to vehicle.● The canister cannot be emptied and re-used.● The device will be checked on daily level 3 checks.● The entire unit should be rotated and placed on charge, for level 1 checks and after use.
