This study compared the bronchial cuff pressures and volumes required by three different designs of disposable left double-lumen tubes during clinical one-lung ventilation in 48 patients having right thoracotomies. Mallinckrodt, Rusch, and Sheridan design tubes (n = 16 for each) were studied in a randomized fashion using Fr 35, 37, 39, and 41 sizes (n = 12 for each size). There were no pressure/volume differences between brands during bronchial cuff inflation before endotracheal intubation. Intraoperatively, the Sheridan design required significantly higher mean bronchial cuff pressures: (27.9 cm H-2O +- 17 cm H-2O (SD)) than either the Mallinckrodt (17.6 cm H-2O +- 8.5 cm H-2O (P = 0.012)) or Rusch (14.1 cm H-2O +- 8.6 cm H-2O (P = 0.010)) to achieve one-lung isolation. During prolonged one-lung ventilation, the potential for trauma to the bronchus may be reduced with a Mallinckrodt or Rusch design of left double-lumen tube.
