Guidance for Oropharyngeal Suction of a Child or Young Adult

This guidance has been published in 2023 to give those people undertaking oropharyngeal suction in children an up-to-date evidence based guide, to ensure a safe and effective technique.  Where evidence is lacking, consensus has been reached by specialist respiratory paediatric physiotherapists across the UK.  It is intended that this is used as a template; additions may be needed to fit in with local policies.
