  • Patent number: 5114415
    Abstract: Apparatus for removing fluid secretions from a patient's upper airway includes a power driven suction generator connected to one end of a flexible tube and a nozzle removably connected to the other end of the tube. The nozzle is constructed to be manually positioned and maintained in an operative position adjacent oropharynx and nasopharynx openings and is proportioned relative to such openings to permit not more than minimal insertion of the nozzle through such openings. In one embodiment the nozzle is constructed of rigid material and is adapted to be utilized as a nozzle for a manually operated nose syringe. In another embodiment the nozzle is constructed of relatively soft rubber-like material and is essentially of the same gradually tapered shape as the nozzle portion of a manually operated ear syringe.
