  • Suctioning through a double-lumen endotracheal tube helps to prevent alveolar collapse and to preserve ventilation. Reissmann, Hajo; Böhm, Stephan H.; Suárez-Sipmann, Fernando; Tusman, Gerardo; Buschmann, Claas; Maisch, Stefan; Pesch, Tanja; Thamm, Oliver; Plümers, Christoph; Esch, Jochen; Hedenstierna, Göran; Böhm, Stephan H; Suárez-Sipmann, Fernando; Plümers, Christoph; Schulte am Esch, Jochen; Hedenstierna, Göran // Intensive Care Medicine;Mar2005, Vol. 31 Issue 3, p431 

    Objective: Endotracheal suctioning can cause alveolar collapse and impede ventilation. One reason is the gas flow through a single-lumen endotracheal tube (ETT) provoking a gradient between airway opening and tracheal (P(tr)) pressures. Separately extending the patient tubing limbs...

  • Repeated open endotracheal suctioning causes gradual desaturation but does not exacerbate lung injury compared to closed endotracheal suctioning in a rabbit model of ARDS. Hideaki Sakuramoto; Nobutake Shimojo; Subrina Jesmin; Takeshi Unoki; Junko Kamiyama; Masami Oki; Ken Miya; Satoru Kawano; Taro Mizutani // BMC Anesthesiology;2013, Vol. 13 Issue 1, p47 

    Background: Although endotracheal suctioning induces alveolar derecruitment during mechanical ventilation, it is not clear whether repeated endotracheal suctioning exacerbates lung injuries. The present study aimed to determine whether repeated open endotracheal suctioning (OS) exacerbates lung...
