Objective To investigate the influence of suctioning on tracheal tube cuff pressure.Methods The tracheal tube cuff pressure was set to 30 cmH2O with pressure gauge before suctioning.Then,the maximum cuff pressure and patients' cough during suctioning and the cuff pressures at 5 min,10 min,15 min,30 min after sunctioning were recorded.Moreover,the duration until the cuff pressure dropped to 25 cmH2O was recorded.Results The incidence of cough during suctioning was 81.25 percent.The tracheal tube… CONTINUE READING
