Are any of you here nurses of a Pediatric Burn Unit? If so, will you be able to share with me your respective units' protocol in securing ETT in patients with facial burns and/or smoke inhalation injuries? Thank you for the effort.

It's been a while but we would use twill ties. which went around the tube and around to head and neck. And on occasion the use of staples(stapling twill tied to the ETT) to the face. Stapling always made me squeamish! These patients were almost always sedated and paralyzed.
