Catheters, Tracheal, Suction/Insufflation
Definition : Tracheal catheters designed for periodic tracheal and pharyngeal mucus removal and inflation of the lungs with a flow of gas from their distal tip. These catheters consist of either dual- or single-lumen tubes; dual-lumen catheters allow simultaneous suction and insufflation, and single-lumen catheters allow alternating suction and insufflation.
