coaxialIs your hospital trying to control costs, increase performance and improve patient pain scores? One way to do so is to implement the Redax Coaxial thoracic catheter.

The Coaxial thoracic catheter is a dual-action catheter with two distinct pathways for drainage in one device. The catheter has the unique ability to drain air and fluid simultaneously in a single incision site, allowing you to use fewer drains and control costs.

The Coaxial’s dual-action design features an inner lumen with distal perforations for air removal and an outer-fluted design to enhance fluid drainage surface area as much as 10 times compared to the conventional drain while minimizing tissue invagination. The design and material are also useful in preventing occlusion by thrombus or fibrin clots.¹ This, in addition to a direct high-flow transition, has been proven to evacuate more fluid/air in the most critical, early, post-operative hours as compared to the conventional chest tube.”

Improved patient pain scores are attributed to the soft silicone construction and fewer tubes (incision sites). The fluted profile minimizes tissue invagination and enables early mobilization for a speedy recovery and patient satisfaction.
