The disposable Ambu TubeChek is a device that
rapidly and reliably confirms if endotracheal tube
placement is correct.
This simple tool uses the anatomical differences
between the oesophagus and trachea to confirm
correct ET tube placement. If there is negative
pressure, the oesophagus has been intubated; if air
can be aspirated, correct tracheal intubation has
been achieved.
This is because if the tube is in the soft, unsupported
oesophagus, the walls will collapse around the end
of the endotracheal tube creating negative pressure
if you attempt to aspirate air. If the tube is in the
rigid trachea, air can easily be aspirated.
If instant feedback is achieved, there is no need for
initial ventilation to obtain CO2 detection. Since no
initial ventilation is needed, potential stomach
inflation is eliminated.
There are two versions of the Ambu TubeChek, the
syringe or the bulb. The bulb illuminates in the dark
making it the ideal solution for the emergency
services.
