Gastric drainage suction pumps are unique. They are designed to protect soft tissue and reduce the risk of damage by limiting the the suction and by lowering the volume (liters per minute). A normal suction pump could cause damage to these tissues. The portable model, the Gomco 270 and the mobile model 6000 plus related models are useful when someone is in attendance to turn them on and off as needed. If unattended use is needed the only models designed for this use are the 6036 or 6037 because they offer constant or intermittent service with options to suit most use.
