DLT Isolation

VivaSIght-DL offers many advantages for lung separation.11 VivaSIght-DL’s clear material allows observation of moisture during ventilation, the presence of secretions or blood in either lumen, or both.12 To aid in positioning, the blue bronchial cuff is easily visualized with the integrated video imaging system. The collapsed lung can be deflated and reinflated at will during the procedure. Material in the operated lung can be suctioned before reinflating the lung, and continuous positive airway pressure is easily applied during single lung isolation.13  DLTs such as VivaSight-DL have fewer instances of dislodgement and can be positioned more rapidly than EBBs. 2
