Utilizing a unique valve to create a one-way flow of air, the aspirator stays in place while the parent applies gentle pulses of suction until the child’s airway clears. The form meets the ergonomic needs of parent and child. The off-center tip makes it easier to position the aspirator close to the child’s face while the over-molded finger recesses provide visual and tactile feedback reinforcing proper grip and intuitive bulb actuation. The shallow ovoid shape fits the hand comfortably and prevents the bulb from sticking or inverting when pressed. All parts disassemble easily for cleaning.
