  • Research reveals portable digital chest drainage systems could help minimise spread of COVID-19

    Pioneering research conducted by a team of thoracic consultants from Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust – home to one of the largest lung cancer practices in the UK – has revealed digital chest drains generate and distribute less aerosol generated particles compared to traditional water seal systems. At the start of the coronavirus pandemic there was limited evidence about the spread of COVID-19 via chest drains which led to uncertainty within the thoracic community about the best medical device to use. Researchers reviewed three different types of chest drainage systems – single chamber, 3 compartment wet-dry suction, and digital drainage system. Results showed that the 3-compartment wet-dry suction system and the digital drainage system did not generate any identifiable aerosolised particles at any of the air leak or drain output volumes considered. Medela’s Thopaz+, a digital chest drainage, and monitoring system can effectively retain pathogen-sized particles and prevent them from subsequently exiting to the environment via the exhaust. Fully supported by clinical evidence from the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), Thopax+ is proven to improve outcomes, ensuring a safe and continuous drainage independent of a wall vacuum to provide safer patient care while minimising the risk of cross-contamination.
