Novel Device to Assess Endotracheal Tube Migration

This study has been completed.
Sponsor:
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Adriano Tonelli, The Cleveland Clinic
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT01697215
First received: September 21, 2012
Last updated: December 12, 2016
Last verified: December 2016
  Purpose
To evaluate the ability of the SonarMed AirWave to provide clinicians with information that enables them to confirm continuous proper placement of the endotracheal tube. This initial study is prospective, observational, looking at CXR results, and comparing those to AirWave system output data.

Condition Intervention
Mechanically Ventilated Patients Admitted to a MICU Other: AirWave

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Novel Device (AirWave™) to Assess Endotracheal Tube Migration.

Further study details as provided by Adriano Tonelli, The Cleveland Clinic:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Endotracheal tube displacement measured by a novel device (AirWave) [ Time Frame: within 24 hours after intubation. ]

    Use of the AirWave in the study group to calculate ETT tip distance from the carina will demonstrate a strong positive correlation with chest x-rays results. Specific endpoints will include:

    • Compare CXR tube tip movement/distance to carina measurement results to AirWave tube tip movement/distance to carina calculation results (from the AirWave baseline location) within 24 hours after intubation.
