A chest drainage system, also known as a chest tube drainage system or pleurovac, is a medical device used to remove air, fluid, or blood from the pleural space (the space between the lungs and the chest wall) and maintain proper pressure within the thoracic cavity.

Description

Chest Drainage System

Our Water Seal Chest Drainage System is a device used for waste liquid drainage from chest in medical institutions for patients with pleural effusion caused by surgical operation, traumatic, hemopneumothorax, spontaneous pneumothorax.

Our Water Seal Chest Drainage System is consisted of connector, connect tube, pressure control valve, working chamber including 3 sub chambers (waste liquid chamber, suction chamber and water seal chamber), one-way valve and sampling port.

ETO sterile, for single use

A chest drainage system, also known as a chest tube drainage system or pleurovac, is a medical device used to remove air, fluid, or blood from the pleural space (the space between the lungs and the chest wall) and maintain proper pressure within the thoracic cavity. This system is commonly employed in various medical situations, such as treating pneumothorax (accumulation of air in the pleural space), haemothorax (accumulation of blood), or pleural effusion (accumulation of fluid).

Here are the key components and functions of a chest drainage system:

Chest Tube:

A flexible tube is inserted through the chest wall and into the pleural space. The tube is typically placed in the anterior or lateral aspect of the chest, depending on the medical condition being treated.

Collection Chamber:

The chest drainage system includes a collection chamber where drainage from the pleural space accumulates. This chamber may have graduated markings to measure the amount of fluid or air drained over time.

Water Seal Chamber:

Connected to the collection chamber, the water seal chamber allows one-way airflow out of the pleural space while preventing air from entering. It consists of a column of water that acts as a one-way valve. As the patient breathes, air exits the pleural space into the water seal chamber but cannot return.

Suction Control Chamber:

Some chest drainage systems include a suction control chamber, which allows healthcare providers to apply controlled suction to the pleural space if needed. This chamber is connected to a vacuum source, and the amount of suction can be adjusted as required.

Underwater Seal:

The water seal chamber serves as an underwater seal, preventing air from entering the pleural space while allowing air and fluid to exit. This helps re-establish negative pressure in the pleural cavity.

Vent:

The chest drainage system may include a vent to release excessive pressure and prevent tension pneumothorax, a life-threatening condition where air accumulates under pressure in the pleural space.

Monitoring:

Healthcare providers monitor the chest drainage system to assess the volume and characteristics of drainage. Changes in the system can provide important information about the patient’s condition.

Disposable or Sterile Components:

Many components of a chest drainage system are disposable or intended for single-patient use to reduce the risk of infection and cross-contamination.

Patient Monitoring:

The patient’s vital signs, respiratory status, and chest X-rays are monitored to assess the effectiveness of the chest drainage system and the resolution of the underlying condition.

Chest drainage systems are critical in managing conditions that lead to the accumulation of air or fluid in the pleural space. They help restore normal lung expansion, prevent complications, and facilitate the healing process. The use of a chest drainage system is typically overseen by healthcare professionals, including surgeons, pulmonologists, or respiratory therapists.
