The EsoSure Esophageal Retractor
Temperature programmed Nitinol Stylet placed into the lumen of an 18 Fr Salem Sump OG Tube
Forms curve at body temperature for deflection
Helps identify esophagus position
Helps place Temp Probe on the medial side of the esophagus
Contrast or US should be used to identify the trailing edge of the esophagus. A round esophagus at baseline will be flattened during deflection and infrequently a flattened esophagus at baseline will be stretched.

Which Temperature Probe is used in your lab?
The most commonly used esophageal temperature probe is an 18 Fr Acoustascope model that insulates the thermistor, slowing thermal response by a factor of 3 and dilates the esophagus with a 27 Fr balloon.
See the handout for faster responding and smaller diameter alternatives that cost less than $10. (We do not sell these.)
