Preterm neonates and other newborn babies are typically intubated in the Intensive Care Unit for respiratory assistance; most devices in the market are not specifically designed for the clinical needs of these types of patients. We designed a very low-cost disposable endotracheal tube holder that is lightweight, hydrophobic, and hypoallergenic. It can hold endotracheal tubes with significant strength and prevents accidental extubation and it also allows the tube to be positioned at any angle for proper patient positioning and comfort.
