Extract

Introduction: Ventilated patients do not cough and are suctioned to clear secretions. Current endotracheal suction catheters pass into the right main stem exclusively. Secretions accumulate in the left side and may lead to resistance. This problem has been addressed many times over thirty years. Several devices developed to access the left main met with no real success. We tested a patented device (The Bronchial Vacuum) that accesses the desired main stem bronchi consistently.
