Ambu® TubeChek

  • Instant feedback
  • No expiry date
  • Illuminates in the dark

The Ambu TubeChek is a device that rapidly and reliably confirms if endotracheal tube placement is correct or not.


The Ambu TubeChek provides an instant feedback, so there is no need for initial ventilation through the tube to obtain CO2 detection. The Ambu TubeChek does not have anexpiry date, which making them easy to handle and store. Shelf life considerations are no longer an issue. The bulb illuminates in the dark making it the ideal choice for EMS services.

The Ambu TubeChek is a very simple tool that uses the anatomical difference between the oesophagus and trachea as its working principle.

If there is negative pressure, you are in the oesophagus; if you can aspirate air, you are in the trachea. If the tube is in the soft, unsupported oesophagus, the walls will collapse around the end of the endotracheal tube, creating negative pressure if you attempt to aspirate air. If the tube is in the rigid trachea, air can easily be aspirated.
