Idea Exchange: Enclosed ETs stay debris-free

May 2, 2016

Try this tip to keep endotracheal tubes organized and free of air-borne contaminants.

In preparation for our AAHA review, we enclosed our endotracheal (ET) tubes. We purchased a 28-qt clear storage box that the ET tube rack fits inside of. We anchored the box to the wall by using standard molly screws and attached the ET rack to it. By closing the storage box, the ET tubes remain clean of air-borne debris.
