What is a Yankauer? 

A Yankauer is a suction tool used to remove secretions, such as mucus, from a patient's airway. It is typically used when the patient has difficulty breathing due to obstruction and cannot remove secretions or foreign matter by coughing. The Yankauer catheter is inserted into the patient's mouth or nose and connected to a suction machine, which creates a vacuum to remove the obstruction. 

The Yankauer suction catheter is also used during oral and dental procedures to remove oropharyngeal secretions to prevent aspiration. Similarly, it is also utilized to clean the operative areas during medical procedures. 

Developed in 1907 by Dr. Sidney Yankauer, the Yankauer suction device with a bulb tip has become the most common suction instrument in the world. It has a large opening that allows effective suction without damaging the surrounding tissues. HPFY offers Yankauer catheters in different sizes, shapes, and materials.
