Visualisation for good clinical practice
in One Lung Ventilation
Proper placement and positioning of a double lumen tube (DLT) or an endobronchial blocker (EBB) may be challenging. Initial malposition or subsequent dislodgment of the tube is not uncommon, and visual confirmation of the correct position is recommended as good clinical practice.
Visualisation during One Lung Ventilation increases patient safety
The Ambu portfolio for One Lung Ventilation (OLV) streamlines the process of placing double lumen tubes and bronchial blockers because you have visual control throughout the entire procedure.
A streamlined way to perform One Lung Ventilation
The VivaSight-DL with integrated high-resolution camera makes placement of the double lumen tube fast and effective. Continuous visual monitoring throughout the procedure provides a clinical benefit and increases patient safety. VivaSight-DL can be used for left and right-sided thoracic surgical procedures exactly like any other left-sided DLT.
Malpositioning and dislocation can be immediately detected and corrected with the real-time video image transmitted to the Ambu® aView™ monitor.
The VivaSight portfolio also includes VivaSight-SL, a single lumen tube with integrated camera, together with the endobronchial blocker, VivaSight-EB.
The aScope 4 Broncho and VivaSight endoscopes both connect to the Ambu® aView™ monitor, which is operational in seconds and intuitive to use.
aScope 4 Broncho simplifies intubation and improves patient safety
The aScope 4 Broncho Slim simplifies bronchoscopy during placement and monitoring of a double lumen tube and a bronchial blocker. It is ideal whenever bronchoscopic guidance is needed as part of One Lung Ventilation procedures.
aScope 4 Broncho Slim is a single-use and high quality bronchoscope that eliminates the need for complex cleaning procedures and minimises the risk of cross-contamination, offering improved patient safety and workflow.
The lightweight and ergonomic design of aScope 4 Broncho Slim makes it comfortable and easy to use. The high bending angles and precise tip motion allow for smooth and easy navigation for correct tube placement and confirmation of positioning.
When connected to the portable aView monitor aScope 4 Broncho Slim offers clear, sharp images and adaptive light control to provide clear visibility for placement and control of a DLT and EBB positioning.
