Abstract

An inexpensive and readily available device for securing the endotracheal tube in oral or nasal intubations is described. The device consists of a Velcro-fastened strap which is adjustable to any size tubing and two additional cloth straps which are tied around the patient's head. This device is very stable when properly tied and minimizes the possibility of extubation or damage to the nasal tissues caused by movement of the endotracheal tubing during surgery.
