Ambu Tubechek is a device that rapidly and reliably confirms if endotracheal tube placement is correct or not.
A very simple tool that uses the anatomical difference between the oesophagus and trachea as its working principle.
If there is negative pressure, you are in the oesophagus; if you can aspirate air, you are in the trachea.
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.
Instant feedback - no need for initial ventilation through the tube to obtain CO2 detection.
And since no initial ventilation is needed, potential stomach inflation is eliminated.
No expiry date, making them easy to handle and store. Shelf life considerations are no longer an issue.
The bulb can illuminate in the dark, making it the ideal choice for EMS services.
TubeChek bulb is disposable.
