Good Morning,

For NICU ET Tube securement the HY-Tape is NOT my first choice. In the humidified environment the tape almost melts, causing a sticky mess with tons of residue on the tape, making further tube securement difficult. Our patients typically will return from the OR with this tape and we change it immediately. I will say it is good for use with the NeoBar ET tube securement device. https://www.neotechproducts.com/product/neobar/ 

All in all, we've found that tape works best for us in our NICU. We are currently using the MultiPore Tape from 3M. https://www.3m.com/3M/en_US/company-us/all-3m-products/~/3M-Multipore-Dry-Surgical-Tape/?N=5002385+3292186741&rt=rud and Cavilon skin barrier https://www.3m.com/3M/en_US/company-us/all-3m-products/~/3M-Cavilon-No-Sting-Barrier-Film/?N=5002385+3293321921&rt=rud


Hope this helps.....
