The Effect of Closed Suction System on the Incidence of Ventilator-associated Pneumonia.

2020-03-29 04:04:35 | BioPortfolio


The investigators are suggesting that closed suction systems may reduce the risk of the ventilator - associated pneumoniae (VAP) and the contamination of the closest unanimated surfaces. In 2011 David et al. have shown that closed suction systems might reduce the incidence of the late VAP. Research team is thinking that preventive bundle with closed suction systems can prevent to onset of the VAP. All enrolled patients is randomizing into two groups: control group - conventional suctioning and research group - suctioning with closed suction system.

Reversible adhesion to rough surfaces both in and out of water, inspired by the clingfish suction disc.

Adhesion is difficult to achieve on rough surfaces both in air and underwater. In nature, the northern clingfish (Gobiesox maeandricus) has evolved the impressive ability to adhere onto substrates of ...

The aim of this study was to describe the technique of pulmonary expansion by suction control from a surgical wound during non-intubated uniportal video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS). Five patients...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The removal of secretions, gas or fluid from hollow or tubular organs or cavities by means of a tube and a device that acts on negative pressure.

Removal of localized SUBCUTANEOUS FAT deposits by SUCTION CURETTAGE or blunt CANNULATION in the cosmetic correction of OBESITY and other esthetic contour defects.

Any suction exerted by the mouth; response of the mammalian infant to draw milk from the breast. Includes sucking on inanimate objects. Not to be used for thumb sucking, which is indexed under fingersucking.

Apparatus that provides mechanical circulatory support during open-heart surgery, by passing the heart to facilitate surgery on the organ. The basic function of the machine is to oxygenate the body's venous supply of blood and then pump it back into the arterial system. The machine also provides intracardiac suction, filtration, and temperature control. Some of the more important components of these machines include pumps, oxygenators, temperature regulators, and filters. (UMDNS, 1999)

Removal of the fetus from the uterus or vagina at or near the end of pregnancy with a metal traction cup that is attached to the fetus' head. Negative pressure is applied and traction is made on a chain passed through the suction tube. (From Stedman, 26th ed & Dorland, 28th ed)
