Özet

Background: Endotracheal tube cuff pressure must be maintained within 20-30 mH(2)O to prevent complications. There is limited literature reporting the impact of nursing care on endotracheal cuff pressure. However, few studies have reported the effect of nursing care on endotracheal cuff pressure. Objectives: This study was performed to investigate the effects of body position on endotracheal cuff pressure.
