Single lung ventilation

Bringing visualisation to the next level

Visualisation 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 correct position is recommended as good clinical practice.


Visualisation 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 visualisation during the entire SLV procedure.

It is about flexibility to choose the right visualisation solution, and ultimately it is about improving patient safety.

Continuous visualisation 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. The 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 VivaSight portfolio also includes VivaSight-SL, a single lumen tube with integrated camera together with the endobronchial blocker, VivaSight-EB.

High-resolution monitor

aScope 4 Broncho and VivaSight both connect to the Ambu® aView™ - a portable, high-resolution monitor that is operational in seconds and intuitive to use.
