Background and Aims: Endotracheal suctioning is one of the most important nursing intervention in critical care units. Increasing nurses’ knowledge about comprehensive criteria for suctioning can lead to improved nursing interventions. One of the main challenges in suctioning of the intubated patients is that nurses doing this procedure without comprehensive criteria. The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of comprehensive endotracheal suctioning training on the frequency of airway suctioning in mechanically ventilated patients.
 
Methods: This research was an outcome-based study. Thirty intensive care unit nurses in different work shifts were randomly selected and entered the study with personal knowledge and consent. Mechanically ventilated patients who admitted to critical care units in a hospital were assessed before and after intervention (training the nurses). The nurses were trained using lectures, installing posters in critical care units, providing educational booklet and clinical practice. The duration of the lecture was 45 minutes using slides. The results were analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics and SPSS software version 21 and using t-test and chi-square.

 
Results: Comparison of the frequency of airway suctioning in mechanically ventilated patients before and after the intervention showed that the frequency of suctioning in mechanically ventilated patients have been decreased with  educational intervention.
 
Conclusion: Our findings show that the intervention in this study had decreased the frequency of suctioning in mechanically ventilated patients.
