Sorry IG, it’s been a minute! A few weeks ago, we had a lab to practice placing double-lumen endotracheal tubes (DLT), which are used for one-sided ventilation of either the right or left lung. This procedure also involves the use of a fiber-optic bronchoscope (FOB) to confirm the placement of the tube in the correct bronchus. They can be tricky to maneuver at first so it’s important to learn how to get good at using a FOB so your attending doesn’t push you out of the way for taking too long. 🤷🏼♀️
P.S. - sorry for the lack of gloves.
