Abstract

Appropriate placement of endotracheal tubes is paramount for optimal visualization of the operative field during thoracic surgeries that require lung ventilation. Appropriate placement of endotracheal tubes is therefore confirmed with fiberoptic bronchoscopy (FOB) rather than clinical assessment alone. Recent studies have demonstrated lung ultrasound (US) is superior to clinical assessment alone for confirming placement of endotracheal tubes, So we aimed to discuss the role of ultrasound in determining the position of endotracheal tube.
