AMSU™- Portable Suction Unit

Airway Medical Suction Unit (AMSU™) aka. ‘Breathe’ is a portable suction device for clearing blocked airways in emergency and chronic conditions. It looks like a sports bottle. It has the potential to make current technology obsolete.

AMSU™ has numerous benefits over current back-up electric/battery suction systems:

  • 90% cheaper  
  • 95% smaller  
  • 95% lighter  
  • Easier to use  
  • No ongoing maintenance issues  
  • Does not require electrical power   
  • Waterproof

AMSU™ meets international standards for laryngeal high, low and thoracic suction.

AMSU™ can be adapted for specific scenarios and is also adjustable from 0 to 25 L per minute flow at 0 to -60 KPa vacuum.

AMSU™ has multiple applications within the medical and industrial markets:

Daily hospital use. Breathe can provide emergency suction to clear blocked airways, enhance survival rates for tracheostomy patients or give respite for chronic conditions such a Cystic Fibrosis, Brain Injury and Dementia, amongst other medical scenarios.


Paramedic and First Responders (defibrillator boxes).

Other Emergency Services such as Coastguards, Air Ambulance and RNLI.

MOD Battlefield Medics


Industrial applications would include any situation whereby a fluid needs to be removed from an awkward location, for example deep sea oil rigs, chemical spillages in laboratories, hazardous spillages in industry.
