Maintaining an endotracheal tube in the correct position is a critical component of anesthesia or surgery. Any shift or displacement of an endotube during anesthesia can be life threatening. A common practice is to use a length of cotton gauze roll to first tie around the tube then around the animal’s muzzle. Roll gauze can come untied or be difficult to quickly untie. The Gen II EZ Tie was designed to be quick and easy to hold any endotracheal or anesthesia mask safely in place. The thin but strong plastic tubing has two sliding, metal paw-print clasps. These clasps readily move along the tubing but hold steady under tension. The first clasp is used to tighten around the ET tube or mask. The second clasp slides along to tighten around the patient’s muzzle. It also works extremely well with challenging brachycephalic breeds such as pug and felines.
