Aspirators, Autopsy

Definition : Aspirators designed to evacuate large volumes of gas, liquid, tissue and/or other debris from a body site by means of high vacuum suction during autopsies and/or other postmortem procedures. These devices usually consist of a powered vacuum pump, a pressure regulator and gauge, one or more large capacity collection canisters, and plastic tubes connecting the components to each other. Frequently these units are connected to an autopsy/dissection station, and may have overflow protection and/or a bacteria filter. The typical vacuum capability should be at least 400 mm Hg; free-flow rates may be as high as 35 liter/min or more. Autopsy aspirators may be portable or mobile and line- or battery-powered. Autopsy aspirators coupled to autopsy stations may include accessories to provide simultaneous irrigation. They are mainly used when suction from a central vacuum system is not available or appropriate.
