Device for the Treatment of Pneumothorax

Device specially developed to treat all types of pneumothorax, from spontaneous, traumatic and iatrogenic, including hypertensive, to any extent.

Features and Benefits:


  • Diaphragm – Red Sign: indicates the presence of air in the pleural space, once  que

      _cc781905-5cde-3194-bb3b-136bad 5cf58d_device na pleural cavity without risk of injury. Determines   and indicates  a  

      _cc781905-5cde-3194-bb3b-136bad 5cf58d_resolution do pneumothorax when it remains negatively deflected;


  • Capacity   of self ventilation and   device drainage: allows walking

      _cc781905-5cde-3194-bb3b-136bad 5cf58d_early of the patient during the entire period of resolution of the pneumothorax;


  •  radiopaque_catheter,  developed with material  Ureflex, _cc781905- 5cde-3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_highly soft, flexible and

      _cc781905-5cde-3194-bb3b-136bad 5cf58d_kink-resistant with multiple drainage holes in its distal portion;


  • Compartment with storage capacity of up to 5 ml of fluids;


  • Trocar: allows easy percutaneous insertion of the catheter into the pleural cavity. It has a groove along its entire length that provides the beginning of pneumothorax drainage from its insertion;


  • Hydrophobic filter: responsible for bacterial filtration;


  • One-way valve: prevents the backflow of air and/or liquids from the device to the patient;


  • Syringe holder: allows manual aspiration through a syringe of small amounts of fluids that accumulate in the compartment;


  • Aspiration cannula: unidirectional valve that allows manual aspiration of the pneumothorax;


  • Suction extension: provided for performing vacuum aspiration;


  • Occlusion Cap: Provided to occlude the device for performing x-rays to determine resolution of pneumothorax.
