dc.description.abstractA problem faced by anaesthetists in Islamic countries is the unwillingness of patients to shave their facial hair. Adhesive tapes may not adequately secure an endotracheal tube in these patients, and a cotton b and around the neck may cause obstruction of the venous return. A new device, a synthetic leather mask, was compared with the two other methods in a r and omized trial on 900 patients undergoing general anaesthesia. No displacement of the endotracheal tube, pressure on the neck veins, or skin reaction were observed in the mask group compared with the adhesive tape and the cotton b and groups. The mask can be reused, autoclaved and made in several sizes, prevents allergies to adhesive tape and is suitable for laryngoscopy, suctioning and inserting the oral airwayEN
