Medical suction devices are essential in a wide range of medical procedures, both in clinical settings and at home. These procedures include surgeries, dental treatments, wound care, and post-operative care. For instance, according to estimates from the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), more than 20 million gastrointestinal (GI) endoscopies are performed annually in the U.S.
Additionally, advancements in minimally invasive procedures that require suction for maintaining a clear field of view further fuels this demand. Furthermore, the preference for home healthcare is on the rise due to factors such as aging population base, the demand for long-term care, and cost-effectiveness. Moreover, patients with chronic respiratory disorders or those in need of post-operative care often opt for treatment and monitoring at home.
