Traditionally the double-lumen-tube (DLT) is considered the gold standard for lung separation. Despite being equally feasible for standard situations, there are special populations and circumstances requiring the use of a bronchial blocker (BB) to establish one-lung ventilation. Children under 8 years of age and patients without a patent orotracheal airway necessitate the use of a bronchial blocker in most cases, as well as those requiring selective lobar blockade or a rapid sequence induction. Surgery with predicted postoperative mechanical ventilation or in tracheotomized patients at least favors their use by avoiding the complications of a tube exchange...

Lung isolation in thoracic surgery is a challenge, this is even more complex in the presence of unknown tracheal stenosis (TS). We report two cases of unknown TS and its airway management. TS appears most frequently after long term intubation close to the endotracheal tube cuff or in the stoma of tracheostomy that appears as a consequence of the granulation tissue after the surgical opening of the trachea. Clinical history, physical examination, difficult intubating predictors and imaging tests (CT scans) are crucial, however most of tracheal stenosis may be unnoticed and symptoms depend on the degree of obstruction...

While analysing the use of the new videolaryngoscopes in the hands of the well experienced anaesthesiologists it is difficult to get answers to all intriguing questions and gain insights that might arise only from the untrained users. We can form a thesis that if a manikin, with the use of a particular device, is intubated quickly and effectively by the novices, it is probable that the more experienced operators will be even more satisfied with its use. AIM: The aim of our study was to evaluate the effectiveness of the use of these devices in the hands of the users untrained in intubation...

BACKGROUND: Immobilization of the cervical spine is indicated in all patients with the potential risk of any cervical spine injury. Airway management in these patients is challenging and direct laryngoscopy is the standard of care. Videolaryngoscopes like the ET-View were introduced into clinical practice to provide better airway visualization and ease intubation. The ET-View is essentially a conventional endotracheal tube, but is equipped with a miniature camera on the tip. The ET-View has not been investigated in patients with immobilized cervical spine so far...

BACKGROUND: Percutaneous dilatational tracheostomy (PDT) in critically ill patients is often led by optical guidance with a bronchoscope. This is not without its disadvantages. Therefore, we aimed to study the feasibility of a recently introduced endotracheal tube-mounted camera (VivaSight™-SL, ET View, Misgav, Israel) in the guidance of PDT. METHODS: We studied 10 critically ill patients who received PDT with a VivaSight-SL tube that was inserted prior to tracheostomy for optical guidance...

CONTEXT: Management of the airway of a trauma victim is considered challenging. Various approaches have been described to achieve airway control in this setup; many of them include video-assited viewing of the larynx during intubation. ETView Single Lumen (SL) is a novice single-use endotracheal tube equiped with a video camera and a light source at its distal tip. Its use was previously described in seeral clinical and training setups. OBJECTIVE: The aim was to evaluate the efficacy of the VivaSight SL compared with classic direct laryngoscopy performed with a Macintosh blade in a manikin-simulated trauma setup presenting various degrees of airway challenge when performed by inexperienced physicians...

For a six-month period, all airway options used for non-emergent patients undergoing thoracic surgery requiring one-lung ventilation at a single institution were assessed after introduction of the VivaSight™ double-lumen endotracheal tube (VivaSight-DL), a novel double-lumen tube with an integrated camera. This device displays a continuous view of the position of the tube relative to the carina. A total of 72 patients had lung separation with the VivaSight-DL. Lung separation was achieved on first attempt without additional manipulation in 85% of cases...

BACKGROUND: Airway management is a crucial skill essential to paramedics and personnel working in Emergency Medical Services and Emergency Departments: Lack of practice, a difficult airway, or a trauma situation may limit the ability of paramedics to perform direct laryngoscopy during cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Videoscope devices are alternatives for airway management in these situations. The ETView VivaSight SL (ETView; ETView Ltd., Misgav, Israel) is a new, single-lumen airway tube with an integrated high-resolution imaging camera...

INTRODUCTION: Pre-hospital airway management is complex and complications occur frequently. Guidelines advice using waveform capnography to confirm correct tube position, but in the emergency setting this is not universally available. Continuous visualization of the airway with a video tube (VivaSight SL™) could serve as an alternative confirmation method, provided that airway structures are properly recognized. With this study we wanted to investigate whether airway management practitioners were able to recognize anatomical structures both in a circulated and in a non-circulated airway...

The efficiency of a double-lumen tube depends on its position in the airways, which can be verified by fibreoptic bronchoscopy. The VivaSight DL is a single-use double-lumen tube with a camera embedded in the tube's right side. The view from the camera appears continuously on a monitor. In this prospective study of 71 adult patients, we compared intubation times using either the VivaSight DL or a conventional double-lumen tube. Median (IQR [range]) duration of intubation with visual confirmation of tube position was significantly reduced using the VivaSight DL compared with the conventional double-lumen tube (51 (42-60 [35-118]) s vs 264 (233-325 [160-490]) s, respectively, p < 0...

The VivaSight-DL(™) is a new single-use double-lumen endobronchial tube with an integrated camera. We studied this device in 151 consecutive patients scheduled for elective thoracic surgery in four different hospitals. Endobronchial intubation was successful in 148 patients (98%) (95% CI 94-99%). Median (IQR [range]) endobronchial intubation time was 59 (47-82 [17-932]) s and lung isolation was successfully achieved in 147 (99%) patients (95% CI 96-99%). A fibreoptic bronchoscope was required to assist endobronchial tube placement in 19 (13%) patients (95% CI 8-19%)...

INTRODUCTION: Double-lumen endotracheal tubes (DLTs), which are commonly used for single-lung ventilation during surgery, are difficult to insert. In addition, they often move during surgical lung manipulation which can cause life-threatening complications. Flexible bronchoscopy is used routinely to establish and confirm proper DLT placement. The newly designed VivaSight DLT has an integrated camera, allowing continuous visualization of its position in the trachea. We hypothesized that the time to intubation using the VivaSight DLT would be faster than with a conventional DLT...
