Figure 2: Depictions of one lung ventilation strategies in right-sided thoracic surgery. Ventilating the left lung through the bronchial lumen of a left-sided double lumen tube; (A) isolating the right lung with the use of the EZ-Blocker through a single lumen endotracheal tube with one cuff of the EZ-Blocker occluding the tracheal bronchus and the other occluding the bronchus intermedius; (B) isolating the right lung with the use of two Arndt bronchial blockers, one occluding the tracheal bronchus and the other occluding the bronchus intermedius; (C) and isolating the right lung with the use of a bronchial blocker through a Univent endotracheal tube with the bronchial blocker occluding the tracheal bronchus and the Univent bronchial blocker blocking the bronchus intermedius (D)
