Thora-Cath® is a soft silicone chest drainage catheter used to provide developmentally-friendly chest drainage when a patient has a pneumothorax or hemothorax, which is air or blood in the pleural space (the space between the lung and the chest wall). This condition does not allow the lung to inflate, which can be fatal if not treated. In a situation like this, a chest tube is inserted to provide drainage from the pleural space.
Thora-Cath® is designed specifically for the fragile neonate to minimize bruising to the pleura and the chest wall during insertion. The soft, non-wettable silicone material prevents scarring of tissue and debris adhesion.
