Any units will do. There is some literature on maximum sucking pressure of babies breast feeding: about ~200mmHG, but I can't find any figure for adults (not necessarily breast feeding [;D] ). Anecdotal evidence suggests that it is lower in adults (sucking through straws type experiments). Results from manometer/u-tube etc experiments welcome!
