Endotracheal tube holder.

Dale Medical Products, Inc., has introduced a new endotracheal tube holder that secures and stabilizes the tube, is comfortable for the patient to wear, and provides healthcare providers with easy access.

The Dale[R] Stabilock[TM] Endotracheal Tube Holder stabilizes 7- to 10-mm tubes following intubation to help prevent extubation, especially during patient transport. Featuring a new protective-barrier wipe and a skin-friendly, latex-free, breathable fabric base that securely holds a cushioned neckband using a Velcro[R] closure, it has a flexible tubing channel that protects the tube and permits easy access for repositioning and oral care.

The Dale Stabilock Endotracheal Tube Holder is designed for single-patient use and can remain comfortably in place for up to 3 days. One size fits most adults. To accommodate patients with facial hair, this product provides multiple placement options for its adhesive fabric base.
