Teleflex to Host Global Online Broadcast From The Netherlands of Rusch®EZ-Blocker™ Endobronchial Blocker Placement

LIMERICK, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Teleflex Incorporated (NYS: TFX) , a leading global provider of medical devices for critical care and surgery, will stream the first-ever global broadcast of a live procedure using the Rusch EZ-Blocker Endobronchial Blocker at 4 p.m. CET on September 5th.

The internationally broadcast webinar, hosted by Teleflex, will stream live from an operating room at Radbound University Nijmegen Medical Centre, The Netherlands, in collaboration with cardio-thoracic anesthesiologists Dr. Jo Mourisse and Dr. Bas Gerritse.

The EZ-Blocker Endobronchial Blocker was developed to provide an improved alternative to double lumen endobronchial tubes and single balloon bronchial blockers to achieve lung isolation. The EZ-Blocker Endobronchial Blocker's unique Y-shaped distal end enables intuitive placement of the balloons in the right or left bronchus when performing thoracic surgical procedures, while also enabling secure placement at the carina. This placement minimizes the need to manipulate the catheter after placement, reducing the potential of cuffs becoming dislodged.

This webinar will provide viewers a closer, more practical look at the EZ-Blocker Endobronchial Blocker's unique design.

"This is a great opportunity for clinicians around the world to see first-hand, via the web, the unique clinical benefits of the EZ-Blocker Endobronchial Blocker," said Jan Bovelander, Vice President, Teleflex Marketing & Business Development, International. "The innovative design provides a practical solution for lung isolation, and we're pleased to demonstrate this product in use."

The webinar portal allows clinicians to ask questions during the placement, which will be answered by one of the anesthesiologists involved in the procedure.

Registration for the webinar is free. Visit to register and to learn more about this exciting new solution for lung isolation procedures.
