AARC Guidelines for appropriate sub atmospheric pressures:

  • Neonates: 60 - 80 mm Hg
  • Infants: 80 - 100 mm Hg
  • Children: 100 - 120 mm Hg
  • Adults: 100 - 150 mm Hg

 

Negative pressures should not exceed 150 mmHg as higher pressures have been shown to cause trauma, hypoxemia and atelectasis.
