Medical vacuum suction regulators are designed with with patient and employee safety in mind.

With infection control being severely overlooked throughout today’s patient care, Amico has designed two different regulator models to help meet the needs of our patients and staff. The scout regulator, and the sentinel regulator! The sentinel and scout regulator both detect contamination. The sentinel family of regulators are manufactured in multiple colors to help identify the model type. You may also upgrade your either vacuum suction regulator to a digital model at little to no cost.

Did you know 37% of vacuum regulators in hospitals are contaminated?

Contaminants can spread to a new patient with in 48 hours. There was never a way to identify contamination until now. The scout medical suction vacuum regulator can identify contamination with a small alert on the lower left-hand side of the vacuum suction regulator. Servicing these suction regulators can be done in minutes and it’s very easy. The unique modular design makes repair and replacement a breeze for any biomedical or central supply department. The unit is made up of six replacable module components. Also, unlike the normal plastic inlet and outlet connections on most units the cast metal plate connections are extremely durable, therefore saving unnecessary repair costs. The case cover is also made of a strong plastic. A smooth surface with rounded corners making cleaning easy. The case also houses the gauge for extra protection. A large control knob and easy to read setting makes vacuum adjustment simple even in emergency situations.

Our pediatric vacuum regulator option restricts flow to 170 inches of mercury to prevent hi vacuum situations in the gauge face is imprinted to identify the regulator for pediatric use.


Medical vacuum suction regulators come in continuous and intermittent models and are ideal for any critical care environment. They can also be used in all patient areas since they are considered combination units. The intermittent module provides a reliable and quiet means of cycling the suction levels on and off during intermittent mode. Adult models regulate to 300 mmHg, Pediatric models to 160 mmHg and Neonatal models to 100 mmHg. ON/OFF timing cycles operate independently and can be adjusted on the back plate of the unit without removing any casing. Pediatric and Neonatal models have positive pressure relief valves for safety. Units come in analog or with digital displays.
