Tubes, Tracheal, One-Lung Ventilation
Definition : Tracheal tubes designed for one-lung isolation and/or to provide one-lung ventilation. One-lung ventilation can be achieved using several different tubes and/or techniques, including conventional single-lumen tubes that may include a built-in bronchial blocker, an isolated bronchial blocker, or a balloon at the tip to provide only one-lung endobronchial intubation. Dedicated double-lumen tracheal tubes that permit left-lung isolation and/or right-lung isolation are also available. One-lung ventilation tracheal tubes are used mainly during thoracic surgery and/or intensive care procedures.
