Management of the artificial airway is a core skill of the respiratory therapist. Securing the tube and cleaning the airway are time-honored techniques that have new device options. The implementation of the AARC CPG has been shown to reduce complications and choice of suction catheter size remains critical. As airway management continues to be a core competency of the profession, RESPIRATORY CARE receives and publishes numerous manuscripts each year on this important topic. This e-book in the Best of RESPIRATORY CARE series contains the Top 7 must-read manuscript selections related to devices for airway management.
