Chest Drainage Devices Market: Introduction

  • Chest drains are also referred to as chest tubes, underwater sealed drainage (UWSD), thoracic catheter, tube thoracostomy, or intercostal drain.
  • A chest tube is a flexible plastic tube that is inserted through the chest wall and into the pleural space or mediastinum. It is used to remove air in the case of pneumothorax or fluid such as in the case of pleural effusion, blood, chyle, or pus when empyema occurs from the intrathoracic space.

Read Report Overview:

  • The objective is to create a one-way mechanism that enable let air/fluid to exit the pleural space and prevent outside air/fluid from entering into the pleural space
  • A chest drainage device consists of a collection chamber (which collects fluid from the chest cavity), a water-seal chamber (which permits the exit of fluid from the chest cavity during exhalation but does not allow return during inhalation), and a suction control chamber
  • Insertion of chest tubes is widely performed by radiologists, pulmonary physicians, and thoracic surgeons
