Chikitsaa Prakaara: Aachooshan`a

Prakaara Paribhaashaa:

  • Suction of venom from site of bite.


  • This can be done either by mouth or by mechanical suction.
  • Mechanical suction can be done by breast pump or suction pump or suction tubes.
  • Manual suction can be done by mouth (mouth should be filled with fine earth or flour of Yava before sucking venom).
  • If the procedure is to be performed by mouth then there should not be any ulceration in the mouth cavity.
  • The venom should be sucked manually or mechanically, and then should be thrown out.

Chikitsaa Karma:

  • Elimination of Visha.

Other description:

  • Fitness of the person doing Aachooshan`a is very much essential if manual suction has to be performed.
