Suction Machines & Canisters
At Wave Healthcare, we pride ourselves on offering families and caregivers top-notch educational services. Our expert RTs and Dietitians provide the best training for respiratory and enteral medical equipment to help you and your child succeed in a homecare setting.
Now, we want to take our educational support a step further. We have begun producing a series of educational videos designed to help keep proper equipment procedures fresh in caregivers’ minds. Furthermore, these videos should help answer questions that may come up while using different medical devices.
