Transcript

  • 1.  
  • 2.
    • Module Title:
    • Suctioning: Oropharyngeal and Nasopharyngeal
  • 3. Suctioning
    • Definition: A flexible plastic suction catheter is inserted into the mouth or nose to remove secretions, fluid, food and secretions from the nose, mouth and airway, reducing the risk of aspiration
    • Two Areas for Suctioning:
    • Oropharyngeal
    • Nasopharyngeal
  • 4. Suctioning
    • Equipment necessary for suctioning:
    • Suction machine: wall or portable
    • Water or Saline
    • Sterile Container
    • Sterile Gloves
    • Protective Pad
  • 5. Suctioning
    • Oropharyngeal Airway :
    • A curved plastic or rubber device inserted into the mouth to the posterior pharynx
    • Used to keep the airway open in unconscious patients
    • Oral Airway prevents the tongue from falling to the back of the throat
    • The curve holds the tongue forward
    • Not to be used on those with loose teeth or recent oral surgery
  • 6. Suctioning
    • Nasopharyngeal Airway:
    • Curved soft rubber device inserted through one nostril
    • Extends from the nostril to the posterior pharynx area
    • Keeps the tongue off the back of the throat
    • May be used in conscious patients
    • May be used on those with loose teeth or recent oral surgery
    • May be referred to as a nasal trumpet
    • Should not be used on those receiving blood thinners, with nasal deformity, bleeding disorders or sepsis
  • 7.  
  • 8. Suctioning
    • Patient Positioning :
    • Conscious Patients
    • Whenever possible position the patient in the High Fowler’s position
    • Unconscious Patient
    • If Hi Fowler’s is not possible, semi-fowler can be used, or the patient may be turned on their side
  • 9.  
  • 10. Suctioning
    • Preparation for Suctioning :
    • Correct Pressure:
    • Some suction regulators have an adjustable pressure setting
    • Pressure may be set between 80 and 120 mm Hg
    • Respiratory Therapist or RN will advise you of the needed setting
    • Crimp the tubing to determine the settings on your suction machine
  • 11. Suctioning
    • Catheter measurement for depth of tip:
    • For safety, measure the plastic suction catheter from the corner of the patient’s mouth to the earlobe on the same side.
    • Do not insert the catheter more than this distance
    • When using a Yankauer/tonsil tip catheter, it is not necessary to measure
