The ultimate LSU collectible

I was searching Froogle last night for LSU gear (there's no offseason for Tiger stuff), and among the strange assortment of products that Google's ultra-powerful shopping engine turned up was this:

Nifty, huh?

At first glance, it looks like it might be some kind of alcohol-delivery system. That would be in keeping with LSU tradition, and apart from the pale-green jar top, it's a fine looking purple and gold LSU keepsake.

Turns out, though, that this is actually a medical device - a Laerdal Suction Unit (LSU). And a nice one, according to the product description:
Raising the standard for EMS suction units. The new LSU features industry-first device diagnostics, a "No Tools" replaceable battery, built in charger, and integrated vacuum regulation/power control. All this in a rugged "Bump-proof/Splash-proof" design that is very quiet. Unit comes complete with AC and DC charging cords, disposable canister with patient tubing, battery, directions for use, and a 5 Year Warranty on the unit.
And all for the bargain price of $749.95.

Geaux Tigers.
