Endobronchial Blocker Tube

Intended to differentially intubate a patient’s bronchus in order to isolate the left or right lung for procedures that require one-lung ventilation to enhance patient outcomes during selective procedures to achieve minimally invasive thoracic surgery. Following the one-lung ventilation, there is no need to re-intubate the patient. A distinctive rotatable cross joint connector can be used to connect to endotracheal tubes as well as tracheotomy tubes, laryngeal masks and anaesthetic circuits with standard 15mm connector to facilitate simultaneous ventilation, endobronchial blockade and bronchoscopy.

GXM-786EBTB GenFlex Endobronchial Blocker Tube (OLV) 1 FSM7866

One Size: Allows effective one-lung ventilation for infants, Paediatrics and adults, eliminating the requirement for multiple sized endobronchial blocker tubes.

  • Manufactured from soft non-toxic thermosensitive medical-grade clear PVC
  • Endobronchial Blocker has a unique Y-shaped distal end that mirrors the bifurcation of the trachea
  • Guide-wire Advancer: By clicking the button on the guide-wire advancer, the guide-wire pops up its distal loop and couples the endobronchial blocker to the fibreoptic bronchoscope, acting as a guide for precise endobronchial blockade. A further click detaches the fibreoptic bronchoscope from the distal loop.
  • Ergonomic Pilot balloon: The degree of cuff inflation can be monitored by the clinician’s fingertips.
  • Blocker Tube Port: Allows easy manoeuvrability of the blocker tube whilst maintaining an airtight seal.
  • Ventilation Adaptor: Easy connection to either the anaesthesia or respiratory circuit. Standard 15mm O.D. connection (ISO 5356-1).
  • Bronchoscopy Port: The fibreoptic bronchoscope is introduced through this port. Rubber flip cover ensures airtight seal.
  • Tracheal Tube Connector: Easy connection to various types of endotracheal tube, tracheotomy tubes and laryngeal masks. Standard 15mm O.D. connection (ISO 5356-1).
  • Cuff: Low pressure cylindrical shape cuff creates large, optimal surface contact with the inner bronchial wall, minimizing the potential trauma to the bronchial mucosa. Blue cuff allows good visual identification.
  • Suction Port: Administration of oxygen to collapsed lungs and deaeration.
  • Radio-opaque line: Easy X-ray visualisation and identification, also aids in positioning of the tube
  • Depth & Graduation Markers: Correct placement and handling during intubation
