Puppy Ward (Test Ward)

Puppy Ward is a 14-bed ward caring for children with a variety of respiratory conditions from cystic fibrosis to empyema/pneumothorax and complex asthma.

We also look after children who require respiratory support from a ventilator (either via a face mask or tracheostomy).

Suction

Suction is used to clear retained or excessive lower respiratory tract secretions in patients who are unable to do so effectively themselves. This could be due to the presence of an artificial airway, such as an endotracheal or tracheostomy tube, or in patients who have a poor cough due to a variety of reasons such as excessive sedation or neurological involvement.
