BACKGROUND Endotracheal suctioning, which is frequently necessary in mechanically ventilated patients, might cause complications, especially in patients with compromised lung function such as extremely low-birth-weight (ELBW) neonates. OBJECTIVES To investigate whether closed endotracheal suctioning (CS) reduces the frequency of hypoxemia and bradycardia in ELBW neonates compared to open suctioning (OS). METHODS In a randomized, crossover trial, 15 ventilated ELBW neonates (mean birth… CONTINUE READING
