Thomas® Tube Holders

Our Thomas Tube Holders secure advanced airway devices, such as Endotracheal Tubes and Supraglottic Airway devices, after insertion into the trachea or oesophagus to reduce the risk of accidental extubation.

Overview

A proven and trusted range of tube holders

The original Thomas® Tube Holder is a tried and trusted tube holder, and an industry leader for the last two decades. Designed to secure a range of advanced airway devices, Thomas Tube Holders are easy to apply and provide a reliable hold over tape fastening methods.

Our Thomas Tube Holders are ergonomically engineered to meet the needs of healthcare providers and offer a comfortable fit for the patient. The hook and loop fastener that straps around the patients’ head conveniently fits quickly into place and fastens securely.

As new methods of airway management and wider bore Supraglottic Airway Devices have been introduced to the market, we are now pleased to introduce the Thomas Select Tube Holder to our range.

Introducing the Thomas® Select™ Tube Holder

Similar in shape to the Thomas Tube Holder, a larger opening allows the Thomas Select Tube Holder to accommodate a wider range of Supraglottic Airway Devices (SGAs), Laryngeal Masks (LMAs) and endotracheal (ET) tubes. Combined with a push-screw mechanism tubes can be secured in a fast and efficient manner.
