  Abortion: Some Medical Facts   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-30)
Suction aspiration, or "vacuum curettage," is the abortion technique used in most first trimester abortions.[
] A powerful suction tube with a sharp cutting edge is inserted into the womb through the dilated cervix.
The suction dismembers the body of the developing baby and tears the placenta from the wall of the uterus, sucking blood, amniotic fluid, placental tissue, and fetal parts[

  Suction - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Suction is the creation of a partial vacuum, or region of low pressure.
Since straws rely on "suction" (air pressure), it would therefore be impossible to drink water from an elevation exceeding 10.3 m, unless additional pressure were applied at the air/water interface.
For example, if the suction pressure of a centrifugal pump is too low, a device may trigger the pump to shut off to keep the pump from running dry; i.

 Half versus full vacuum suction drainage after modified radical mastectomy for breast cancer- a prospective randomized ...
Suction drains are routinely used after modified radical mastectomy and are an important factor contributing to increased hospital stay as the patients are often discharged only after their removal.
Suction drainage in the management of mastectomy patients was used for the first time in 1947 [1] and has been found in various studies superior to other methods of fluid evacuation to minimize the dead space.
While the negative suction drain is logically expected to drain the fluid, a high negative suction drain may prevent the leaking lymphatics from sealing off thus leading to prolonged drainage leading to increased hospital stay [4].

 Performance of Suction Caissons
Suction caisson models with a diameter of 100 mm, length of about one meter, and a wall thickness of 0.8 mm (ratio of diameter to wall thickness similar to a full-scale caissons) are being used.
Suction caissons have gradually replaced pile foundations as anchors for floating offshore structures in deep water.
The objective of this research is to measure and interpret the response of suction caisson foundations subjected to axial and lateral loads.

 Suction Dredge Parts
Suction nozzles self-priming, and are therefore ideal for 2.5" and smaller dredges which tend to work shallow water areas.
The suction nozzle installs at the working end of the suction hose and is fed by an extra-long pressure hose from the pump.
The alternative to the suction nozzle, it is used inline with the hose and normally attached directly to the sluice box.

 ICU-USA - Tour - Suction Canister
The suction canister may be seen attached to the wall of the patient’s room or resting on the floor next to the patient’s bed.
The suction source (which may be a wall outlet or a portable compressor) generates a negative pressure in the canister that helps to drain the fluids or secretions from the patient.
Occasionally the suction may cause irritation to the tissue at the end of the tubing.

 ICU-USA - Tour - Suction Catheter
A suction catheter is a flexible, long tube attached on one end to the breathing tube (endotracheal or tracheostomy tube).
The other end of the suction catheter is connected to a collection container (suction canister) and a device that generates suction.
The frequency of suctioning is determined by the amount of secretions that the patient produces.

 Ristenbatt Vacuum - Power of the Vacuum Cleaner Suction Motor - Your best source for Vacuum Cleaners Products.
It is the suction motor which takes the electrical power from the power source and converts it into mechanical power in the form of suction with air flow.
It is based on suction with air flow at the unit itself so it is affected by the suction produced by the suction motor as well as the internal resistance to air flow.
The sealed suction of a vacuum cleaner as rated in inches of water lift is a good indication of how well it will perform, especially when comparing systems with higher resistance to the air flow.

 Presto Galaxy Suction Cups Kids Q&A Page
The idea was that the suction cups would draw the bad blood away from the diseased organ to the surface of the body.
No. The first commercial use of suction cups was a photographer's developing stick with a suction cup at the end of it, patented in 1866 by Thomas Roche of Williamsburg, NY, which was used to lift photographic plates out of the photographic bath in the darkroom.
When you push a suction cup up against a wall or window, you push out the air inside it, eliminating the pressure inside the suction cup and creating a vacuum which seals the cup tightly to the surface you want it to stick to.

The shellac was removed from this map by swabbing the surface with alcohol using the chamber as a ventilation chamber to remove the fumes from the surface.
The surface was then flooded with the solvent and the suction table, when turned on, removed the residual shellac from the paper support into a blotter beneath the map.

 About the glenohumeral suction cup - Glenohumeral Suction Cup.
The glenoid suction cup stabilization mechanism is easily demonstrated in young cadaver shoulders in which the articular cartilage, glenoid labrum, and joint capsule are compliant.
Like stabilization from adhesion-cohesion, the glenoid suction cup centers the head of the humerus in the glenoid without muscle action and is effective in midrange positions in which the capsule and ligaments are not under tension.
The suction cup mechanism is disrupted in situations where the socket cannot seal to the surface of the humeral head, such as an avulsion of the glenoid labrum or glenoid fracture.

 Nasogastric suction
Nasogastric suction involves removing solids, liquids, or gasses from the stomach or small intestine by inserting a tube through the nose and suctioning the gastrointestinal material through the tube.
Nasogastric tubes cannot be placed in patients who have blockages in their esophagus, enlarged esophageal veins or arteries that might bleed, or severe damage to the jaws and face.
Nasogastric suctioning is normally well tolerated by patients and is a temporary treatment, performed in conjunction with other therapies.

 Simplicity Vacuums : Suction vs Airflow
Strong suction power is needed, for example, when a vacuum cleaner is used on thick, plush, carpeting.
Without airflow, there is nothing to pull dirt in and carry it away, which is why suction alone is not effective in carpet cleaning.
The ideal vacuum cleaner offers a balance of strong suction power and an abundance of airflow: suction power to pull air through plush carpet and sufficient airflow to carry dirt away.
