Visualization for good clinical practice
in Single 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. Visual confirmation of the correct position is recommended as good clinical practice.
Vizualisation during Single Lung Ventilation increases patient safety
The Ambu portfolio for Single Lung Ventilation (SLV) offers a solution that overcomes the challenges of proper placement of double lumen tubes or bronchial blockers. The devices provide visual control during placement as well as continuous vizualisation during the entire SLV procedure.
The portfolio aims to give you the flexibility you need to choose the right visualization solution, and ultimately, it aims to improve patient safety.
Continuous vizualisation for faster and safer Single 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 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 Single Lung Ventilation procedures.
aScope 4 Broncho Slim is a single-use and high quality bronchoscope that eliminates the need for complex cleaning procedures and minimizes 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.
