Clinical White Paper published by Boehringer Laboratories August 2008

Hospital suction outlets need to provide a minimum of 85 liters per minute of unrestricted airflow to be compliant with established standards. Suction regulators attached to the wall outlets restrict the flow available from these outlets. Only Boehringer suction regulators minimally affect the available flow and deliver maximum suction power, ensuring the most significant ability to remove patient secretions at any suction setting.
