Study Description

Brief

The purpose of the current study is to prospectively evaluate the usefulness of thoracic ultrasonography in demonstrating effective lung isolation during single-lung ventilation (SLV) in the pediatric patient. The primary hypothesis is that ultrasonography will accurately verify lung separation during SLV, as compared to fiberoptic bronchoscope (FOB).
