MFR #780020

The Laerdal Suction Unit is the only suction unit on the market today with the capacity to determine and display its readiness for use. It can test for occlusions, vacuum efficiency, maximum vacuum attainable, battery charge, system leakage and status. With the LSU, you can count on delivering the best patient care every time.

The LSU features an industry-first device diagnostics system, and an integrated vacuum regulator/power knob. It’s all arranged in a rugged bump-proof/splash case design and it operates very quietly.

The compact and affordable choice for the most extreme situations, the Laerdal Suction Unit is the result of more than 30 years of airway management experience. The unit includes disposable canister, patient tubing, AC and DC cords, battery and directions for use.


  • Dependable
    Device diagnostics check all critical system functions
  • Easy to use
    Single large knob operates the unit
  • Variable vacuum
    w/5 commonly used Oropharyngeal/Tracheal settings
  • High performance
    Capable of  > 30 lpm at 500+ mmHg setting
  • Rugged
    Full “Rib Cage” design protects canister while suction unit meets stringent splash-proof (IP34D) and bump-proof requirements
  • Quiet
    Extremely quiet when operated at low vacuum levels. This allows the unit to be particularly effective in a hospital environment or any other setting that demands quietness. At 500+ mmHg the db(A) level is 57 or less.
  • Flexible
    Comes with a built-in AC/DC power transformer. The unit can be operated or charged directly from AC/DC mains or an optional wall bracket.

Ready, Willing and Able:
The only suction unit that offers one-touch testing to quickly check all functions: occlusion, vacuum build-up efficacy, maximum achievable vacuum level and air leakage.

Full range of tracheal and/or oropharyngeal vacuum levels set by a single knob that doubles as a power switch.

High night/day visibility LEDs indicate all critical system functions.
