Indication:Temporizing tamponade of massive gastro-esophageal bleeding that is unresponsive to medical & endoscopic therapy (or as in the case above, endoscopic therapy is unavailable) The difference between a Sengstaken-Blakemore tube (SBT) and Minnesota Tube (MT):
EGD was not possible and tamponade with a Minnesota tube was unsuccessful. Hemostasis was finally achieved with an emergency TIPS procedure and embolization of varix. Minnesota tubes are similar to Sengstaken-Blakemore tubes except that they feature a fourth lumen used to aspirate esophageal contents. Thus the four lumens are:gastric
PulmCrit Wee:Ultrasound-guided blakemore tube placement
Two Cases of Ultrasound-Guided Blakemore PlacementSimple Approach to Ultrasound-Guided Blakemore PlacementLiterature ReviewDiscussionCase #1 A patient required Blakemore tube placement due to refractory variceal hemorrhage. With continuous monitoring via transgastric ultrasonography, the Blakemore tube was advanced. The tube could be visualized entering the stomach. When the tube was advanced to a depth of 50 cm, the gastric balloon Case #2 Subsequent to this case, I have repeated this technique once. The second case was ultrasonographically identical to the first, with excellent views of the stomach. It was performed solely under ultrasound guidance, since the patient was crashing and radiology was not immediately available.Question 30 Deranged Physiology"The use of the Sengstaken-Blakemore tube for immediate control of bleeding esophageal varices."
