The endobronchial tube allows for the inflation of one lung as indicated for thoracic surgery or intensive care. There is a right and a left Shiley™ endobronchial tube option depending on the lung that needs to be ventilated. The tube features a low pressure tracheal and bronchial cuff to minimize risk of mucosal damage. The specially designed bronchial cuff assists with location of the distal tip when verification is confirmed by a fiber-optic bronchoscope. There is a slight curve at the distal tip to assist with placement. There is also an x-ray opaque carinal hook for confirming placement.
