Removal of Endotracheal Tube Secretions Comprehensively Until Extubation
Evaluation of the Safety and Efficacy of CAM (Complete Airway Management) Catheters: Phase II Study
The purpose of this study is to measure secretion accumulation within endotracheal tubes of mechanically ventilated patients and test the efficacy, safety and clinical impact of removing the secretions using novel airway management catheters (Complete Airway Management Catheters: CAM Rescue Cath and CAM Endotrach Cath).
Thirty mechanically ventilated adult patients will be managed with standard suction catheters. Just prior to extubation, their physiological parameters (including work of breathing) will be recorded and acoustic reflectometry used to measure the degree of secretion accumulation within the endotracheal tube. The endotracheal tubes will then be cleaned using the CAM Catheters (Rescue Cath followed by Endotrach Cath) and the physiological parameters and endotracheal tube reflectometry measurements repeated for comparative analysis.
Interventional
Phase 2
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
  • Mechanical Ventilation
  • Pneumonia
Device: CAM (Complete Airway Management) Catheters
Prior to extubation, endotracheal tube lumen secretions are mechanically removed using CAM Rescue Cath followed by CAM Endotrach Cath.
