Does anyone have experience with a mucus suction machine?
I bought one for my dad, who is in advanced PSP stage and has a PEG tube (this one, but under a different name - bhagwati.in/wcm/sites/defau...
It's pretty good so far (used it 3 times, has adjustable pressure and you can use a disposable pipe at the end (called suction catheter) - it has different gauges - I used 12 or or 16 or 18 - these are bigger in diameter
I tried using it with my dad a couple of times but he hates it and tries to bite it - I don't want to force since I don't want him to feel undignified or insulted - plus I cannot push it too near the throat in case I might injure it
I looked for some online videos but they are not so helpful - I will check with some doctor as well but meanwhile can someone please share their own experience, if you've had it with a mucus suction machine?
