<p>Designed to secure the tube in place after insertion in the trachea, the Thomas endotracheal tube holder is a state-of-the-art improvement over tape fastening methods. In fact, these holders were ergonomically engineered from both the patient's and the healthcare provider's perspective to provide the most effective holder on the market today. The Thomas holder secures the tube in place via the use of a quick set-screw that also facilitates easy removal without the bother and mess of tape. It also features a bite block that protects both the tube and patient. A wide Velcro® strap holds securely, yet comfortably, and will stay fastened even when wet.</p>
