Why does every ER have a football helmet? 17:54

It’s used during a rare procedure where a patient is having a catastrophic bleed from their esophagus. There’s a balloon that inflates in a patient's esophagus, and has a tube coming out of their mouth. In order to secure the tube in place, the face mask on the football helmet is used to retain tension and secure it so no one has to hold it.
