A routine for safe, effective endotracheal suctioning is delineated. This routine was established by correlating various periods of augmented tidal ventilation and endotracheal suctioning with continuous arterial oxygen tension measurements. Patients were evaluated at bronchography to determine the effect of head position on suction catheter placement. Inspired oxygen concentrations were measured via an intratracheal catheter during various forms of inhalation therapy and modes of breating. Using these observations, guidelines were established to maximize the benefits and minimize the risks of an endotracheal suction routine.
