Figure 3: Depictions of one lung ventilation strategies in left-sided thoracic surgery. Isolating the left mainstem bronchus with a bronchial blocker through a single lumen endotracheal tube; (A) ventilating the right lung through the tracheal lumen of a left-sided double lumen tube; (B) and occlusion of the tracheal bronchus by the tracheal cuff of a left-sided double lumen tube causing inadequate ventilation of the tracheal bronchus (C)
