  • Background: The endotracheal tube (ETT) cuff pressure must be in a safe range that ensures delivery of the prescribed mechanical ventilation tidal volume, reduces the risk for aspiration of secretions that accumulate above the cuff, and does not compromise tracheal perfusion. Maintaining the ETT cuff pressure within an optimal range is challenging because many factors influence the pressure, such as the patient’s position and suctioning, so monitoring and maintaining ETT cuff pressure within… CONTINUE READING
