How to Conduct a closed suction procedure
In this tutorial, Sarah Sheppard teaches us how to conduct a closed suction procedure. First, wash your hands, apply gloves, and identify yourself to the patient. Now, you will do vital signs such as, heart rate, respiratory rate, and lung sounds. After this, check the suction pressure and it should be around 80 to 120. Now, perform the rest of the closed suction procedure by inserting your standing needle and turning it off, then turning on the 02 sensor. This will give your patient two minutes of oxygen, and wait for their saturation levels to even out. It's very important to do this procedure quickly, push the suction into the throat. When finished, observe the patient to make sure everything is alright, and you're finished.
