Suction machine -- one of those jobs I absolutely detested and would offer to do anything ​for someone else if they'd suction for me.

I never had a problem with suctioning. I guess it had something to do with the fact that I had a lesson with an old-timey doctor (who was a chief pulmonologist at a TB sanatorium). This doc LOVED new nurses as he'd gather us around to demonstrate his suctioning technique and then we'd do it in return.

I always felt a gurgly pt was struggling and I just couldn't and wouldn't let a pt 'drown' on my watch.

I always taught new orientee nurses about the emergency suction machine setup (incl wall setups)and how to troubleshoot the equip. And they'd get to experience it if we had a pt on the units needing suction.

Suction and sputum = leuki (sp?)tube!!
