Let’s face it, suction devices in a field medical pack can be a challenge. They’re big, bulky and heavy. Even most compact tactical suction devices, though smaller and lighter, can sometimes be a challenge to fit into kits. The Rescue Essentials Tactical Suction Kit was designed for those situations where you just don’t have the space.
This kit consists of a 70cc Toomey Syringe and a 6” piece of flexible tubing. You can attach the tubing to the catheter tip or remove the tip and attach directly to the syringe. This provides a larger lumen, improved flow and less chance of obstruction.
The syringe is roughly the size of a laryngoscope handle and will fit easily into most airway kits or the elastic retainer loops in your med pack. Being a syringe, it can also serve double duty as a wound irrigation device using the catheter tip or the Luer slip tip adapter for needle irrigation. The Luer slip tip adapter is conveniently stored in the syringe plunger.
This syringe is included in the Executive Protection Kit.

Looks good. Just a backup for a bad day so haven’t used it yet.
I had to use this device on a cardiac arrest and found the tubing simply suctioned onto any soft tissues and was rather difficult to control while operating the plunger. Cutting a bevel into the tubing may solve this issue but I ended up using a finger sweep as it was more effective. Trying to use this device was a waste of precious time in clearing the airway. I would recommend one of their other suction devices if there is any room in your kit at all. It is a good concept, but it doesn't work well in the field.
