Age Suction PressureInstillation Suction Catheter (- mm Hg)Volume(ml) (F) < 1 yo x ETT ID 1-12 yo >13 yo *prn only* Intubation 1 Suction 2 Line up depth marking on suction catheter to depth marking on ETT. 4.0 ETT and smaller suction a minimum of Q8H Instillation volume is important to limit and document in infants and small children VAP protocols apply Resistance to passage of ETT:use ½ size smaller Cuff pressure to be kept < 20 cm H2O Leak at <10cm H2O: exchange ETT for ½ size larger Smaller ETT= Raw ETT follows chin. Pt position for care and CXR ++ important. Chin low=ETT low Shorter trachea= greater chance for extubation if traction applied to ETT. Hold your tube with reference to pt with any pt movement, suctioning, manual ventilation or transport! Depth of ETT recorded ATN, ATT or ATG Smaller ETTs may slip through tube holders- consider taping ETT AgeETT IDETT DepthBladeStylet (mm) (cm ATG/ATT) (F) 3 X ETT * CXR to confirm <12 mo uncuffed Miller yo3.5 cuffed Miller yo4.0 cuffed yo4.5 cuffed15Miller 2 6 yo5.0 cuffed16.5Mac 2 8 yo6.0 cuffed18 10 yo6.5 cuffed yo7.0 cuffed21Mac 3 teen cuffed21 AgeRRTiVtPEEP (s)(ml) (cm H2O) < 1 yo ml/kg5 > 1 yo * Ventilation Initiation Guidelines Ideally want PIP <25 cm H2O With RR may need to Ti Consider Pressure ventilation to limit PIP Accept pH > 7.25 manipulate RR to achieve Accept PO2 > 60 When MAP >16-18 consider APRV/ HFOV Want 8-9 posterior ribs inflation on CXR Wean to minimum PS of 8 for infants, 6 for children *Admission weight (exceptions obese/ fluid overloaded) *If no tubing compensation will need to Vt Problematic ETT Leak -Choose pressure mode of ventilation -Need to assess chest rise for adequate Vt -Measured Vt’s inaccurate -Pt position will affect leak -Can pack around ETT with NS soaked nasal packing as temporary fix if issues with CO2/O2. DO NOT CUT and tape to face. -Exchange ETT for larger size Should have leak around ETT prior to extubation IF NO LEAK with cuff deflated: Consider Dexamethasone pre-extubation Have epinephrine 1:1000 neb ready (0.5 ml/kg up to max of 5 ml) post-extubation Remember anything added to the circuit after the wye is DEADSPACE and may be more significant with smaller Vt.
AgeRRBP*HR awakeHR asleep <12 mo / years / years / years / years / *Lower limit of SBP =70 + (2 x age in years) Infants and small children don’t like strangers. RR, BP and HR will . Evaluate prior to entering room if possible Respiratory failure is 1° cause of cardiac collapse. Intervene early. Children have large compensation capacity. Must recognize shock early. Too late once decompensated.
