Primary Outcome Measures:
  • All causes morbidity. Clinically identified as hypoxaemia, unplanned extubation, cardiac arrythmias, cardiac arrest. Measured as any change in patient´s monitor identified for ancillary nurse and/or confirmed directly by pediatrician. [ Time Frame: Every component for primary outcome can be assessed during or after suctioning is applied.For routine protocol, every 2 hours for necessity protocol will depend on patient´s necessity. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Mechanical ventilation length as days. [ Time Frame: Every day while patient really is intubated. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Enrollment: 90
Study Start Date: February 2010
Study Completion Date: August 2010
Primary Completion Date: August 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Necessity endotracheal suctioning
Endotracheal suctioning depends on clinical manifestations
Procedure: Necessity endotracheal suctioning
Endotracheal suctioning depends on clinical manifestations
Routine endotracheal suctioning
Endotracheal suctioning every two hours
Procedure: Routine endotracheal suctioning
Endotracheal suctioning every two hours

Detailed Description:

Endotracheal aspiration is a very useful procedure. It has several adverse events every time that aspiration is practiced. This trials wants to identify which protocol (necessity versus routine) could be better to practice in pediatrics intensive care unit with less risk.
