The AARC have produced the following guidelines for nasotracheal suctioning (NTS):
- Neonates: 60—80 mm Hg
- Infants: 80—100 mm Hg
- Children: 100—120 mm Hg
- Adults: 100—150 mm Hg
Negative pressures should not exceed 150 mmHg as higher pressures have been shown to cause trauma, hypoxemia and atelectasis.
