Subglottic aspiration

Suction above the Chord Endotracheal Tubes (SACETT) are used for patients in the ICU whom need intubation and ventilation. They provide the ability to suction pooled secretions (sub-glottal aspiration) from above the cuff on the endotracheal tube (ETT).
Subglottal suctioning is part of a bundle of care with the aim of reducing VAP in the ICU population.
