The disposable Ambu TubeChek is a device that rapidly and reliably confirms if endotracheal tube placement is correct.
The simple tool uses the anatomical differences between the oesophagus and trachea to confirm correct ET tube placement. If there is negative pressure, the oesophagus has been intubated; if air can be aspirated, correct tracheal intubation
has been achieved.
If the tube is in the soft, unsupported oesophague, the walls will collapse around the end of the endotracheal tube, creating negative pressure if you attempt to aspirate air. If the tube is in the rigid trachea, air can easily be aspirated.
