Minimizes inadvertent extubations;
ensures tube stability
B&B ET Tape is a short term endotracheal tube holder. The ET Tape is a pre-cut, non-irritating foam, adhesive endotracheal tube holder that protects the upper lip and skin across the cheek area. The ET Tape is latex free and made of hypo-allergenic materials with superior holding power to ensure the stability of the endotracheal tube and minimize the incidence of inadvertent extubations. Adhesive skin prep is included in the package to provide added protection against skin breakdown and irritation. A Cable Tie is provided to secure placement of the endotracheal tube and prevent slippage.
B&B recommends the use of the B&B Universal Bite Block or the B&B Bite-Proof Bite Block with the ET Tape to protect the patient’s teeth and prevent the patient from biting on the endotracheal tube. The ET Tape can be used in all critical care units, operating rooms, emergency departments, special procedure units and for transport situations.
