Pre-measured or Deep Suctioning is suction that is measured according to the length of the trach tube. This allows for suctioning the complete length of the the trach tube. The suction depth will differ according to your child's trach size.
You do not want the tip of the suction tube to extend past the end of the tracheostomy tube.
Never suction past the end of the trach tube.
