Idea Exchange: Tackle endotracheal tube disorganization

Mar 01, 2012
By staff

At our clinic, we were having trouble keeping our endotracheal tubes from getting mixed together. We had them in a drawer, divided by cardboard, but that was not working well, so we bought fishing tackle boxes. The tackle boxes keep the tubes organized and store away easily. All the tubes except for size 11 fit into the boxes. Each slot can hold four to eight tubes, depending on the size of the tube.
