Double lumen tube placement and confirmation using

The Robertshaw 28Fr left-sided double lumen endotracheal tube is the subject of this discussion. This is referred to as a “lung isolation unit” by Dorsch and Dorsch. Of course, Dorsch and Dorsch then go into great detail about any kind of unusual and exotic dual lumen tube that exists. The Carlens, the White, the Robertshaw, the Broncho-Cath, the Sher-I-Bronch, the Silbroncho, and so on are just a few examples. I’m not sure how important these details are in the ICU. When it comes to dual lumen tubes, we are rarely faced with such a bewildering array of choices.
The DLTs on the right and left sides are named after the bronchus they are meant to join. The DLT on the right hand, for example, is built to enter the right main bronchus. The right and left sided dual lumen tubes have one significant difference in design. The anatomical difference between the right and left bronchial trees accounts for this difference. To demonstrate, I’ll use this stolen Grey’s Anatomy picture.

Chris works at the Alfred ICU in Melbourne as an intensist and ECMO specialist. He is also a Clinical Adjunct Associate Professor at Monash University and the Innovation Manager for the Australian Centre for Health Innovation at Alfred Health. He is the Lead for the ANZCEN Clinician Educator Incubator program and a co-founder of the Australia and New Zealand Clinician Educator Network (ANZCEN). He is a member of the Intensive Care Foundation’s Board of Trustees and a First Part Investigator for the College of Intensive Care Medicine. He is a widely recognized Clinician Educator with a passion for assisting clinicians in their learning and enhancing individual and group clinical results.
He continued post-graduate study in New Zealand, as well as Australia’s Northern Territory, Perth, and Melbourne, after completing his medical degree at the University of Auckland. He has post-graduate training in biochemistry, clinical toxicology, clinical epidemiology, and health professional education, as well as residency training in both intensive care medicine and emergency medicine.

Double-lumen tube insertion

Sex, height, DLT size, tracheal diameter, and right and left bronchial diameters were all found to be significantly correlated with DLT misplacements into the RMB in the univariate logistic regression analysis (Table 2). The multivariate logistic regression analysis was not conducted because all six parameters were significantly inter-correlated in the correlation analysis (P 0.001).

Furthermore, of the 48 patients who had their DLTs misdirected into the RMB, 40 patients (83.3%) had their DLTs successfully repositioned into the LMB using blind techniques (Table 3). The success rate of repositioning in the second phase (68 percent) was higher than in the first (23 percent) or third (33 percent). During the repositioning of DLTs, there were no adverse events such as hypoxia or involuntary extubation. Furthermore, no serious postoperative airway problems were found in patients who had their DLTs blindly repositioned.

The lungs are two organs that are bound by bronchi and trachea and work as a single entity. Lung separation and one-lung ventilation can be required by surgeons in order to perform procedures on the lung or provide optimum surgical exposure.
The double lumen endotracheal tube (DLT), bronchial blocker, and single lumen endo-bronchial tube are the three methods for lung separation, with the DLT being the most common.
