    Applications Pressure Response Comments
    Monitoring Hole Cleaning A gradual decrease in ECD while steering indicates poor hole cleaning This results from cuttings settling out in high angle wellbores
    A steady increase in ECD while rotating indicates poor hole cleaning This results from settled cuttings being lifted back into suspension
    Short term variations in ECD can indicate poor hole cleaning This results from restrictions in the wellbore while circulating
