Title: Preliminary experience on the safety and tolerability of mechanical "insufflation-exsufflation" in subjects with artificial airway.
Issue Date: 3-Apr-2018
Citation: Intensive Care Med Exp.2018 Apr;(6)1:8
Abstract: Catheter suctioning of respiratory secretions in intubated subjects is limited to the proximal airway and associated with traumatic lesions to the mucosa and poor tolerance. "Mechanical insufflation-exsufflation" exerts positive pressure, followed by an abrupt drop to negative pressure. Potential advantages of this technique are aspiration of distal airway secretions, avoiding trauma, and improving tolerance.
