Tube Position Verification Instrument
The tube position verification instrument is a quick and easy way to check if the endotracheal tube has been positioned in the trachea or in the esophagus. The instrument is made of a small, flexible rubber ball with a connector to attach it to the endotracheal tube.
How it works:After the endotracheal tube has been positioned, the rubber ball on the tube position verification instrument is squeezed to allow air to escape from the balloon. The position verification instrument is connected to the tube in this state and the balloon is then released. If the balloon fills with air again, the tube is in the trachea and intubation has been carried out properly. If not, however, the tube is not in the trachea, but rather in the oesophagus and the tube has to be removed immediately and repositioned.
