Teleflex’s Rusch brand EZ-Blocker offers an elegant way to obtain One Lung Ventilation (OLV). It is designed with an innovative and unique symmetric Y-shaped bifurcation and inflatable cuffs at the distal end, to guarantee easy placement and simple execution of bi-lateral procedures. This configuration does not only yield good stability, which is highly appreciated when preparing the patient for surgery, but also provides the possibility of CPAP.
Nearly 20 percent of central line recipients will need a CT scan and 100 percent need protection from infection. To streamline patient care, our ARROWg+ard Blue PLUS® catheters now perform three vital functions: They help clinicians reduce microbial colonization, deliver therapy and allow the pressure injection of contrast for CT scanning up to 10 ml/sec.
