Abstract

The Statlock(™) is an IV stabilization device developed by Bard Access Systems, Inc. We describe the use of a modified Statlock with tracheostomy ties to provide a secure anchor for an endotracheal tube in a child with toxic epidermal necrolysis. We review the benefits and drawbacks of previously described devices in patients with similar conditions (burns, epidermolysis bullosa, Stevens Johnson syndrome). We demonstrate creation of this system with readily available supplies to provide an accessible and stable airway in patients with facial injury precluding adhesive use.
