Suction Machine Troubleshooting

This video addresses two possible problems with a suction machine. These problems include: the suction machine does not turn on, and the caregiver is unable to set an appropriate suction pressure. While the suction machine used in this video is a stationary machine, the general principles of troubleshooting are the same for any type of machine.
