Guardian Angels offer comprehensive oral suction training for carers, health workers and nurses, providing the essential basis for ongoing in-work competency assessment and evaluation. Using both practical and theoretical training methods, attending delegates will learn how to undertake oral suctioning safely and effectively, while also gaining an in-depth understanding of application, risks and the legal landscape surrounding this procedure. Nurses, health and care workers are required to carry out oral suctioning for patients and service users who require assistance to clear phlegm secretions from the airways when unable to do so themselves. This can be due to weakness, fatigue, large volume or thick secretions or the lack of force required to cough their airways clear. It can be necessary to increase blood oxygen levels, subsequently improving breathing and activity levels. Our qualified nurse, doctor and paramedic trainers will guide you through the complete oral suctioning process.
