Description of the BD Chest Drain
The Heimlich Chest Drain Valve is a specially-designed flutter valve used to replace underwater bottles in chest drainage.
Constructed of rubber tubing, the valve is compresed at one end to form leaflets that control unidirection flow.
The valve is encased in a transparent plastic chamber with tapered ends.
The proximal end of the casing can be attached to most chest catheters and the distal end to tubing that empties into a plastic bag.
If desired, the distal end can be connected to regulated suction.
The Heimlich Chest Drain Valve is sterile and a single use device.
