Brief Summary:
To evaluate the safety and efficacy of endotracheal tube securement techniques, a pragmatic, randomized controlled trial will compare the effect of adhesive tape versus endotracheal tube fastener on complications including lip ulcers, facial skin tears, endotracheal tube dislodgement, and ventilator associated pneumonia among critically ill adults requiring intubation and mechanical ventilation for at least 24 hours.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Mechanical Ventilation Complication Device: Tube Fastener Device: Adhesive Tape Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
Background: The optimal securement method of endotracheal tubes is unknown, but should provide adequate security while minimizing complications. This study tests the hypothesis that use of an endotracheal tube fastener would reduce complications among critically ill adults undergoing endotracheal intubation. This hypothesis will be tested in a pragmatic, single center, randomized trial comparing the effect of adhesive tape versus endotracheal tube fastener (Hollister) among critically ill adults requiring intubation and mechanical ventilation for at least 24 hours.
