Choosing and using suction catheters
Catheter thickness should never be any larger than half the internal diameter I.D.(inside opening) of the tracheotomy tube.
Airways are delicate and care should be taken inserting and removing the catheter. Suction should be used only as you pull out the catheter.
Suctioning must NEVER be done for more than 5 to 10 seconds at a time as oxygen is also removed.
The patient will need your confidence, support, kindness and love.
You will receive training for all suction techniques at the hospital.
