The Medela Vario 18 Suction Pump is a medium-vacuum medical suction pump for hospitals, clinics, and home care. Includes front and side brackets to hang canisters, tubing with coupling pieces to connect the canister and filter (#0770931), and disposable overflow protection/bacteria filters (#0770571). Available in both factory new and certified refurbished conditions.

Warranty:

  • Certified Refurbished: 1 Year - Parts and Labor.
  • Factory New: 2 Years Limited (Unit), 6 Months (QuatroFlex and Battery).

The Vario 18 Suction Pump removes surgical fluids, bodily fluids, tissue, bone, gases, and infectious materials. It can be used for applications such as aspiration, ears, nose, and throat (ENT), tracheostomy, and gastroenterology (Vario 18 AC/DC c/i only). It can be used in wound drainage, in airway support, and respiratory support.

Hospitals already using a Medela fluid collection system do not need to purchase a new set - the Vario 18 can be equipped with either the Reusable (RCS) or Disposable Collection System (DCS).

QuatroFlex Piston System: The Vario 18 and 18 c/i surgical suction pumps are powered by the well-proven QuatroFlex system, a patented piston/cylinder drive unit. This ensures that the device operates reliably and silently. Vario pumps allow the suction pressures for delicate operations to be precisely set and maintained. The low noise level keeps staff focused on the task at hand wherever suctioning takes place. Stressful situations require an easy setup and handling - both needs are met with the Vario 18 pump.

Variable vacuum levels make the Vario 18 indispensable in hospitals - simply adjust the vacuum by pushing down the button and turning it. Not only are settings precise, but the safety push-button also prevents accidental re-adjustment.

Battery Versions: Can be used for portability, patient transport, or in areas with no power sockets.

The Vario 18 c/i (c/i - Constant/Intermittent): Guarantees maximum suction performance for a range of constant and intermittent suctioning needs, such as gastric suctioning and surgical suctioning. Intermittent suction can provide a more delicate drainage, whereas the constant suction mode is used for smaller interventions or airway suctioning. The versatility of the device makes it a great all-rounder for hospitals and clinics.

Note: The Vario 18 is not functional on its own until additional tubing and canister accessories are added.

Medela Vario 18 Suction Pump Accessories

Additional accessories purchased separately are necessary to make the Vario 18 a functional aspiration package. Please note that the Vario 18 is not functional on its own until additional tubing and canister accessories are added.

Hospitals already using a Medela fluid collection system do not need to purchase a new set - the Vario 18 can be equipped with either the Reusable (RCS) or Disposable Collection System (DCS).

  • Patient Tubing: The most common patient tubing purchased for liposuction is the Medela Silicone Patient Tubing (#0770970), or the Medela Disposable PVC Patient Tubing (#0770951), which has an additional fingertip control to stop suction if needed.
  • Canister(s): It is up to you what size and type of canister you will use. If you decide on a disposable canister, you will need an outer canister and the respective sized disposable suction liner. The reusable canisters are autoclavable.
  • Canister Lid: No matter what size/type canister you decide, you will need a canister lid of the corresponding size.
  • Canister Adapter: You should only need one adapter that connects the canister to the machine. The Medela Outer Canister Vario Adapter (#0770105) will work perfectly.

Great suction unit

We now have 4 of these suction units and they are amazing. My only complaint is that they do not come with a canister.
