Haider Tube Guard
- Prevents ETT dislodgement and accidental extubation
- Fits all standard adult ETTs (6.0 - 8.0 mm I.D.)
- Soft silicone bite block design protects oral tissues and prevents biting/ ETT occlusion
- Eliminates need for tapes/adhesives
The Haider Tube Guard is a state of the art endotracheal tube security device. It is a multipurpose, ergonomically engineered device designed to: 1) secure the endotracheal tube to the patient, 2) serve as a bite-block to prevent endotracheal tube occlusion, 3) protect the oropharyngeal soft tissues (lips, tongue, etc.) and teeth from injury.
The Haider Tube Guard’s main body is composed of soft, medical grade silicone, ensuring an atraumatic and comfortable interface with the patient’s mouth and face. The device’s clamp is constructed from durable glass-filled nylon and engineered to fit all adult endotracheal tubes (sizes 6.0-8.0mm I.D.). The Haider Tube Guard surrounds the in situ endotracheal tube, locking it onto the maxilla and mandible through its contact with the teeth and gums. A Velcro neck strap adds an extra layer of security, ensuring maximal control of endotracheal tube position.
The Haider Tube Guard is the new Gold Standard for endotracheal security. A recently published peer-reviewed clinical trial (Read the Article Here) demonstrated that the Haider Tube Guard was superior to all forms of adhesive tape as a method to secure the endotracheal tube in numerous surgical settings. Haider Tube Guard dramatically reduced unwanted endotracheal tube motion and eliminated the risk of accidental extubation. Haider Tube Guard is ideal in settings that are typically difficult to secure an endotracheal tube, such as: 1) large beards/facial hair, 2) oily/weepy skin, 3) facial burns, 4) patient transport, 5) prone position, 6) cases with excessive head movement. Furthermore, the device is very useful in cases where small ETT movements would be detrimental (EMG tube for vocal cord monitoring, double lumen endobronchial tubes) and in patients undergoing intraoperative advanced neuro-monitoring (high risk for movement and biting).
The Haider Tube Guard will protect your patient from injury to the lips, tongue, and teeth. Plus, the integrated bite-block eliminates the possibility of negative pressure pulmonary edema secondary to patient tube-biting. Finally, the Haider Tube-Guard’s scientifically proven extreme resistance to dislodgement ensures that the endotracheal tube remains in the trachea and your patient remains safe.
