|आचूषणं विषदुष्टस्तन्यरुधिरेषु शृङ्गालाबूभ्यां मुखेन वा । सु. सू. ७/१७ डल्हण
|M / W – suction, sucking out
|Action of sucking either deep seated blood, pus or other secretions from a wound, organ etc.
|Various instruments are used for suction purpose. E. g.
1. To draw up vitiated breast milk
2. To suck out vitiated blood or poison with S`hringa ( deer horn ) or Alaaboo . The idea is to let the vitiating matter out from the site and to facilitate healing.
This works on the principle of creating a vacuum thus making the secretions ooze out actively from the cut surface. It was also used to isolate the abdominal lumps for excision.
|Suck out, suction by instrument or even mouth
