This practice uses the syringes to hold endotracheal tubes instead of gauze.
We make endotracheal tube ties from old IV lines and the bottom end of 1 ml syringes. No more untying slimy, soggy gauze! I use the bottom end of a 1 ml syringe for the piece that tightens around the tube, and the one section up on the syringe for the piece that tightens around the patient.
