Changes in heart rate, mean arterial pressure, and oxygen saturation after open and closed endotracheal suctioning: A prospective observational study

Journal of Critical Care, 05/10/2012

Changes in heart rate (HR), mean arterial pressure (MAP), and peripheral oxygen saturation (Spo2) were comparable and mild during and after closed suction systems (CSSs) and open suction systems (OSSs). Both systems can be considered equally safe.
