Sengstaken-Blakemore tube

a multilumen esophageal tube used for the tamponade of bleeding esophageal varices. One lumen leads to a balloon that is inflated in the stomach, to retain the instrument in place, and to compress the vessels around the cardia; another leads to a long narrow balloon by which pressure is exerted against the varices in the wall of the esophagus; and a third provides for aspirating contents of the stomach.

Sengstaken-Blakemore tube for esophagogastric tamponade.
