Endotracheal intubation must be effectively secured to the face.

If the taping is not adequately secured or does not adhere properly due to saliva, perspiration or mucus, accidental dislodgement may occur. This puts the patients at serious risk and has costly consequences.

Epidurals must be effectively secured at the site of catheterization. If the catheter dislodges due to perspiration, the anesthetic effect is compromised and results in inevitable discomfort for the patient. Reinsertion of the dislodged catheter is painful and costly.

Intravenous lines must be taped down or have a dressing secured over them as a protection against dislodgement and infection. Pediatric, active and diaphoretic patients in particular are at risk for dislodgment, which can have far reaching consequences.

Central venous and arterial lines must be securely covered with a dressing to protect against infection and dislodgment. Nasogastric tubing must be effectively secured to the nose - this is especially difficult with diaphoretic patients or those with oily skin.
