What is a bronchial catheter?
A bronchial catheter, such as this Bard-brand catheter, is a long flexible tube used to keep a patient's airway free and clear of any liquid. The suction catheter is connected to a suction machine and a collection container which allows it to draw out and dispose of liquid secretions. This is done to prevent the patient from aspirating the secretions into the lungs, so that the patient can breathe easier and keep the area clear of infection.
