Title
(DE) ANPASSBARER ANZEIGEANSCHLUSS FÜR EINEN ENDOTRACHEALTUBUS
(EN) ADAPTABLE VIEWING PORT FOR ENDOTRACHEAL TUBE
(FR) REGARD ADAPTABLE POUR UN TUBE ENDOTRACHÉAL
Abstract
(EN)
This disclosure provides a medical device adaptable to current endotracheal tubes having a first segment defining a first lumen with both a distal and proximal end, and a second segment defining a second lumen with both a distal and a proximal end. The first segment and the second segment may be attached to one another. The first segment's distal end extends farther than the second and is configured to receive a viewing device, such as a bronchoscope, whereas the second segment distal end is configured to receive a previously placed endotracheal tube. The device allows a single physician to perform tracheostomy procedures such as percutaneous procedures while reducing risks associated with such procedures.

(FR)
La présente invention se rapporte à un dispositif médical adaptable à des tubes endotrachéaux classiques qui comportent un premier segment qui définit une première lumière ayant à la fois une extrémité distale et une extrémité proximale, et un second segment qui définit une seconde lumière ayant à la fois une extrémité distale et une extrémité proximale. Le premier segment et le second segment peuvent être fixés l'un à l'autre. L'extrémité distale du premier segment s'étend plus loin que le second segment et est configurée pour recevoir un dispositif de visualisation tel qu'un bronchoscope tandis que l'extrémité distale du second segment est configurée pour recevoir un tube endotrachéal placé auparavant. Le dispositif permet à un seul médecin d'effectuer des procédures de trachéotomie telles que des procédures percutanées tout en réduisant les risques associés à de telles procédures.
