The traditional method of endortracheal suctioning of a patient has been identified a possible route of infection and cause significant drops in a patient's arterial oxygen saturation when removed from the vantilator for suctioning.
Evidence shown this may induce the symptoms of cardiac arrhytmia, slow down heart beat, and cardiac failure and eventully endanger a patient's life. Closed suction system is multiple-use closed-system design which is effective in decreasing the infection of lower respiratory
tract infection and can reduce the mortality rate of the nosocomial penumonia.
Closed suction system can eliminate the need to disconnect the patient from the vantilator during suctioning and prevent arterial oxygen desaturation in patients on positive end-expirotory pressure (PEEP).
This device is applicable to assorted intubated paitents, especially these with cardiovascular discorders and pulmony discorders.
