SCCM Pod-428 Endotracheal Tube Size and Aspiration
Each year, approximately 790,000 patients in the United States develop acute respiratory failure that requires intubation and mechanical ventilation. This podcast explores the association between endotracheal tube size and aspiration in acute respiratory failure survivors.
