(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCEDE DE DRAINAGE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An apparatus for removing body fluids from a body cavity by suction, such as a thorax, gastric or any other human body cavity or a wound, comprises means (9) to increase the pressure difference between a pressure in a drainage lumen (3) and a pressure in the atmosphere when an auxiliary lumen (5) is open. The apparatus enables removal of clots or other plugs of the catheter and drainage tube in an efficient and not patient disturbing way.
(FR)L'invention concerne un appareil qui permet d'éliminer des liquides biologiques d'une cavité par succion, de type thorax, cavité corporelle gastrique ou autre cavité corporelle humaine ou blessure. Cet appareil comprend un moyen (9) qui permet d'augmenter la différence de pression entre une pression dans une lumière de drainage (3) et une pression dans l'atmosphère lorsqu'une lumière auxiliaire (5) est ouverte. Ledit appareil permet de retirer des caillots ou autres éléments d'obstruction du cathéter et du tube de drainage de manière efficace et sans gêne pour le patient.
