From intubation to extubation, management of the patient with an
endotracheal tube can challenge the skills of even the most experienced
health care professional. This valuable video can help provide those skills
by covering the following topics: How endotracheal tubes work; patient
preparation and intubation; taping methods; assuring proper tube placement;
mouth and nasal care; suctioning (traditional and closed suction
techniques); how to measure cuff pressure; drug administraion through an
endotracheal tube; repositioning the tube; cuff inflation (minimal occlusive
volume technique and minimal leak technique); cuff deflation; extubation.
