To remove bronchial clot from bleeding tracheostomy…

If it is down the right main bronchus (which it usually is)…

Cut off the distal connection of suction tubing and pass down the ETT/tracheostomy (size 8+)

Also a possibility is to connect to oral ETT and advance into right main bronchus

This gives wide bore suction.
