There may also be anti-siphon valves at the syringe end of each tube to prevent the siphoning of air or syringe contents. The tubes may be adhered to each other (ie. 'siamese tubing') prior to entering the single channel. The total length of the tubing can be over two meters in length.

Method of use
Used for anaesthetic procedures. The dual lumen configuration allows the individually controlled administration of two different drugs into the same cannula. The distal end is connected to the cannula and drugs are administered at the proximal end via two syringe pumps.
To use, remove all caps and attach a syringe to one lumen whilst the other is clamped. Prime the lumen and clamp. Following this, repeat with the other lumen. When ready to use, release the clamps on both lumen before starting the pump.
