The Ipas line of aspirators (also known as a manual vacuum aspirators) are easy to operate, hand-held vacuums that use suction to remove uterine contents through the cervix using a cannula (sold separately). The vacuum aspiration technique is recommended by WHO to manage incomplete, missed or induced abortion.
The Ipas aspirator is:
Effective (98 to 100%)
Affordable, limited investment required
Easy to learn and to use
Discreet, portable, quiet
Ideal for performing procedures in the outpatient setting, even with no electricity or with space constraints
Made with latex-free plastic
It may be used for early pregnancy loss (miscarriage) management, induced abortion, post abortion care (if incomplete or missed), or to obtain samples for endometrial biopsy. The rate of infection is lower than any other surgical abortion procedure at 0.5%.
