Chest tube clogging after thoracic surgery is a common problem. When chest tubes clog with clot, blood can be retained in the chest causing Retained Blood Complications. Most of the time, chest tubes clot in the portion inside the patient, which is not addressable by clinicians. PleuraFlow® Active Clearance Technology™ enables caregivers to actively keep chest tubes clear of clot to maximize evacuation potential and decrease the potential for Retained Blood Complications.
