A study found that evaluating the esophageal anatomy as a landmark for tube location was 100 % specific for both peri- and post-intubation patients, and suggest that this may be an additional bedside tube location verification tool for patients post-intubation, either from pre-hospital intubation or ICU patients with concern for tube displacement after transport, and since real-time visualization of the ETT motion sliding into the trachea is not available in these patients (https://www.thieme-connect.com/products/ejournals/abstract/10.1055/s-0034-1366014)
