Made from non-toxic PVC, used in the OPS of bronchus, thoracic surgery and so on. Available with two types products for thoracic surgery.
A tracheobronchial tube, often referred to as a “double-lumen endobronchial tube” or “tracheobronchial blocker,” is a specialized medical device used in thoracic surgery and critical care to provide selective ventilation to one lung while isolating the other lung. Here’s a brief description of a tracheobronchial tube:
Purpose: The primary purpose of a tracheobronchial tube is to facilitate one-lung ventilation during thoracic surgeries, such as lung resections or procedures that require access to the chest cavity. It allows for the selective collapse of one lung while maintaining ventilation in the other.
Design: Tracheobronchial tubes are double-lumen tubes with two separate lumens or channels—one for the trachea (windpipe) and the other for one of the mainstem bronchi. These lumens are independently controlled, enabling healthcare providers to adjust ventilation to each lung.
Isolation of Lungs: By blocking one of the main bronchi, tracheobronchial tubes effectively isolate one lung from the other. This is critical for creating a clear surgical field, preventing contamination, and ensuring surgical precision.
Clinical Use: Tracheobronchial tubes are commonly used in thoracic surgery, such as pulmonary lobectomies and lung transplant surgeries. They are also employed in cases of severe lung injury or conditions requiring selective lung ventilation.
Position Verification: Proper placement of the tube is confirmed through bronchoscopy or auscultation, ensuring the tube is correctly positioned in the trachea and bronchus.
Sterility: Tracheobronchial tubes are provided in sterile packaging to maintain aseptic conditions in the operating room and reduce the risk of infection.
Single-Lung Ventilation: The ability to selectively ventilate one lung while collapsing the other provides surgeons with the necessary exposure and access to the surgical site, ensuring the success of thoracic procedures.
Tracheobronchial tubes are essential instruments in thoracic surgery, enabling precise and controlled one-lung ventilation. Their design allows healthcare providers to isolate and manage the ventilation of each lung independently, contributing to patient safety and surgical success during thoracic procedures.
