Unplanned extubation is an unanticipated removal of an endotracheal tube that potentially places a patient at risk for short- or long-term complications. In neonates, spontaneous movement, tube dislodgement during procedures, uncuffed endotracheal tubes, positioning, and suctioning, increase the threat of unplanned extubation in this population. In this CE webinar, neonatal experts will share protocols from their facility on how focusing efforts on controllable measures to reduce the incidence of unplanned extubation in the NICU is crucial to preventing it. Sustaining adherence to prevention measures is the greatest challenge to bedside caregiver and is necessary to protect the patient from harm.
