Suction Training

This suction training is aimed at anyone working in a care or nursing environment where suction is required.

Delegates will learn the theoretical and practical skills required to safely carry our oral suctioning on a patient.

The course can be expanded to cover nasopharyngeal suctioning if required, please ensure you mention this during your enquiry.

Our trainers will bring a suction machine and all required equipment with them for your staff to use during the training course.

This course is often combined with our Oxygen Training course and Nebuliser Training course to make a full days worth of training.

As I have told others... It is the best, most informative training I have ever attended
