Pleural Drainage Catheter Anchoring Device PLEURA-GUARD
Reduce risk of accidental removal of catheter.

Pleura-Guard is an anchoring device for pleural drainage catheters sized 16 to 30 French. The device consists of a skin-side surface with a super skin friendly hydrocolloid adhesive combined with a specially designed foam block that reliably prevents kinking of the catheter. A non-woven lid provides effective securing of the catheter on the foam block.
In addition catheters are prevented from being expelled by the body and the secure anchoring of the catheter also prevents catheter movement from enlarging the catheter exit site, thus inhibiting leakage.

The catheter exit site is covered by a transparent hydrocolloid lid which protects the puncture site from contamination while allowing continuous monitoring of the puncture site.

1. PE-foam support.

2. Comfortable PU -foam with skinfriendly adhesive.

3. Thin transparent hydrocolloid cover allows monitoring of puncture site.
