Frequently Asked Questions

There are many types of suction tubes for surgery. Yankauer suction tip is the most popular type. 

Yankauer suction tip was invented by an American doctor Sidney Yankauer in 1907, so it was named yankauer suction tip.

The opening and diameter of the yankauer suction tip is larger than that of the general suction tube, and it has a bulbous head. The characteristic of the yankauer suction tip is that it can attract efficiently and protect the tissue. Because of its ergonomic design, it was welcomed by doctors once it was released.

Dr. Sidney Yankauer was an otolaryngologist. He needed to suck up the secretions of the oropharynx quickly during the operation, so he improved the previous suction tube. Therefore, the yankauer suction tip was originally used for oropharyngeal surgery, which is why the yankauer suction tip has a curvature.

Although the yankauer suction tip is currently the most commonly used in surgical operations, don’t forget that its main business is to attract oropharyngeal secretions. In the textbooks of some nursing education institutions in Europe and the United States, the yankauer suction tip is used for airway management.
