Description

Patients with a tracheostomy tube may be unable to cough adequately to expel pulmonary secretions. Therefore, tracheal suction is essential in managing secretions and maintaining respiratory function and a patent airway. This How to module provides nurses with information on how to suction via a tracheostomy.

Tracheal suction reduces the risk of pulmonary consolidation and atelectasis that may lead to inadequate ventilation.

Respiratory assessment of the patient should be carried out to identify when tracheal suction is required.
A suction pressure of 80-120mmHg is recommended, and suction should last no longer than 15 seconds.
Reassurance and support should be given to the patient to minimize any discomfort and distress that may result from tracheal suction.

Objectives

On completion of this course you will gain an understanding of:
1. List the preparatory steps and equipment required for tracheal suctioning.

2. Discuss signs and symptoms that indicate the need for tracheal suctioning as well as the risks associated with the procedure.

The knowledge deficit we have is quite big, especially registered nurses trained on job to work in ICU within africa-Uganda. Nevertheless this has made me a better ICU trained registered nurse. Thanks
