The second part of Medom’s classic suctioning series—updated with a new look and feel—this program describes the anatomy of the airway, demonstrates oropharyngeal suctioning techniques, and both open and closed in-line endotracheal suctioning techniques used to remove accumulated secretions.
After viewing this program, the learner should be able to:
• Demonstrate the technique for oropharyngeal suctioning
• Describe proper placement of the oropharyngeal and nasopharyngeal airways
• Demonstrate the technique for open endotracheal suctioning
• Demonstrate the technique for closed, in-line endotracheal suctioning
