Closed system suctioning (CSS) is a method of removing secretions from the tracheobronchial tree of patients with mechanical ventilation without disconnecting the mechanical ventilator. The putative benefits of CSS include the maintenance of positive pressure ventilation, oxygen supply, and positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP). However, some evidence indicates that negative airway pressure may develop during CSS if inappropriate ventilator settings are selected. The purpose of this in vitro… CONTINUE READING
