Endobronchial blockers for one-lung ventilation


Our endobronchial blockers allow one-lung ventilation through a conventional single-lumen endotracheal tube that is easier to place and poses a lower risk of trauma to internal structures than a double-lumen tube.

Arndt Endobronchial Blocker

CC-D32882-EN_blog_mosaic_ArndtIntended to differentially intubate a patient’s bronchus in order to isolate the left or right lung for procedures that require one-lung ventilation. The product is intended for use by physicians trained and experienced in the use of fiberoptic bronchoscopes and airway anatomy. Standard techniques for use of fiberoptic bronchoscopes and endobronchial blockers should be employed.

Features and benefits

•  The low-pressure, high-volume balloon creates excellent surface area contact with the inner bronchial wall while minimizing potential trauma to the bronchus.

•  The adjustable guide loop is coupled with an appropriately sized bronchoscope to enable precise placement.
