Verification of ET tube placement is imperative when intubating a patient. The disposable Ambu® TubeChek is a bulb-style device that rapidly and reliably confirms if endotracheal tube placement is correct.


  • Instant feedback – no need for initial ventilation through the tube to obtain CO2 detection.
  • No expiry date -  makes it easy to handle and store.
  • Illuminates in the dark - bulb illuminates in the dark making it the ideal choice for EMS services
  • Latex-free

The simple tool uses the anatomical differences between the esophagus and trachea to confirm correct ET tube placement. If there is negative pressure, the esophagus has been intubated; if air can be aspirated, correct tracheal intubation has been achieved. If the tube is in the soft, unsupported esophague, the walls will collapse around the end of the endotracheal tube, creating negative pressure if you attempt to aspirate air. If the tube is in the rigid trachea, air can easily be aspirated.
