Bronchoaspiration is an invasive technique that is necessary for the elimination of secretions that stagnate in the respiratory system.
This procedure allows the identification of microorganisms present in the airways and prevents the patient from incurring in obstructions of the respiratory tract, infections or atelectasis.
The closed suction system allows to avoid disconnecting the patient from the assisted ventilation: let's see what the advantages are.
The closed suction system has several advantages for both the patient and the healthcare provider.
In fact, by avoiding disconnecting the patient from mechanical ventilation, it is possible to limit not only the contamination of the surrounding environment but also the risk of infectious agents that, from the outside, can enter the patient's airways.
The closed system allows keeping the Positive End Expiratory Pressure (PEEP) constant during the aspiration manoeuvre, reducing arterial desaturation and cerebral deoxygenation and speeding up the stabilization of vital parameters.
In addition, this technique also facilitates any emergency manoeuvres, which can be faster because they can also be implemented by a single operator.

Bronchoaspiration is a potentially risky manoeuvre, which can lead to significant complications such as infections, granulomas or bleeding of the tracheal mucosa.
For this reason, providing effective tools for the healthcare professional is also important to reduce the time required for procedures.
RuideMedical's closed suction systems are made with quality materials and equipped with:
transparent chamber ensures the control of the bronchial secretion by aspiration;
atraumatic catheter tip, to reduce the risk of lesion of mucous membranes during the procedures.
The system is also equipped with a double swivel connector and a suction valve with locking system. Usable for up to 24 hours, the system is available in both the tracheal and endotracheal versions.
