Criteria of endotracheal tube fixing and appropriate methods
We did Delhi process on the basis of fact-finding results from 2003. The purpose was to make clear a more appropriate way of fixing an endotracheal tube that would prevent the extubation.The results of the three higher ranks were as follows: Cases who were light weight and had not much movement were II-7, II-2, II-3. Cases who were heavy and had much movement were II-7, VI-1 and II-2. We conducted investigations into the methods of the two higher ranks, and achieved 66 0x1.e13ecp-891nd 60 0x0p+0greement with them.We evaluated these methods by the points of: the newborn's negative effect, the strength of fixing, the stability of fixing, the easy process, and the cost. The result was that we need more consideration of these factors.In the cases who were light-weight, and had not much movement, we evaluated using other ways, which were not the same as the three higher ranks. Then, we improved them, and devised a new way. Also, we compared and examined the new way. For the cases who were heavy-weight and had much movement, because the first rank was the same way as the light one, we decided to use the same examination method as was used in the light weight cases.
