Endotracheal intubation is a common practice in critical care areas like the intensive care unit. Fixation becomes most important when the duration for which tube is inserted is for a long period of time as in the intensive care unit. Optimal Stabilization of the endotracheal tube is the most important step after the endotracheal tube has passed beyond the vocal chords and the cuff is inflated. We describe a new method of endotracheal tube called tripod fixation which seems to be close to ideal method of endotracheal tube stabilization.
