Detectors, Esophageal Intubation
Definition : Detectors designed to determine when a tracheal tube has been incorrectly placed in the esophagus (i.e., esophageal intubation) during tracheal intubation. These detectors typically consist of devices that either detect exhaled carbon dioxide or apply a vacuum through a small-caliber tracheal tube inserted into the main tracheal tube used for intubation. Esophageal intubation detectors are used in healthcare facilities and in the field to detect esophageal intubation, which prevents patient ventilation and may be fatal if not discovered in time.
