Bronchial cuff pressures of double-lumen tubes


Bronchial cuff pressures of double-lumen tubes

Pressure damage to respiratory mucosa from overinflation of bronchial cuffs has been implicated as a cause of bronchial rupture, a rare but devastating complication of double-lumen endobronchial tubes (DLTs). We compared the pressure/volume characteristics of the bronchial cuffs of three different polyvinylchloride (PVC) DLTs and an equivalent sized red-rubber Robertshaw DLT. At the volume needed to seal effectively our bronchial model, two of the three PVC tube cuffs tested generated significantly less pressure than did that of the cuffs of the third PVC and the red-rubber Robertshaw tubes.
