Chest Drainage Contract: Contract # PP-OR-1561
The PleuraFlow ACT System is indicated for use following cardiothoracic surgical procedures and chest trauma. Its Active Clearance Technology proactively inhibits and disrupts clot formation inside the chest tube to reduce the likelihood of chest tube occlusion. Improving drainage by maintaining chest tube patency has been shown to improve patient outcomes reducing the incidence of common complications such as Pleural, Pericardial Effusions and New Onset Post-Operative Atrial Fibrillation (POAF). Recent data shows that reduction of the aforementioned common complications following cardiac surgery can have a significant impact in reducing hospitals costs.
