    "Minimised discomfort during drainage."

    Catheter Design:

    Easy occlusion management: 

    A replaceable valve allows for catheter repair, rather than catheter exchange.

    Catheter Options:

    The Aspira® Drainage Catheter is 72cm long. The catheter has a space of either 11cm or 15cm between the catheter cuff & proximal fenestration for tunnel track length flexibility.

    Flow rates

    Simulated testing shows the Aspira® siphon drainage bag:

    • Has a 68% higher average flow rate than the PleurX Drainage system.1 2
    • Demonstrates consistent pressure & flow rate, unlike the PleurX Drainage System, which has a high initial vacuum that drops quickly.2

    Simulated average flow rate comparison1

    • Aspira® siphon drainage bag - 7.46 ml/sec
    • PleurX drainage system: 4.45 ml/sec

    Siphon Drainage Bag:

    Faster drainage

    • Increased flow rate, shortens drainage procedure

    Simple to use

    • A gravity based design produces consistent pressure flow for minimised discomfort.
    • A simple and easy-to-use design makes it an excellent choice for caregivers and patients.

    Storage space:

    Twenty Aspira® siphon drainage bags and dressings require approximately the same amount of space as one box of four PleurX Bottles and dressings, reducing storage space & waste.

    Vacuum bottle

    The Aspira® Drainage Bottle was designed to be easier to use than competing home drainage bottles. An alternative to drainage bags, the Aspira® Drainage Bottle has a number of innovative features that give patients control of their drainage, making it another effective solution for at-home care.

    Drainage bottle product features:

    Drainage control

    • Stop & restart drainage before the bottle is full.
    • Roller clamp allows the patient to control the speed of drainage.

    Ease of use

    • Stop & restart drainage before the bottle is full.
    • Roller clamp allows the patient to control the speed of drainage.
    • Easy fluid removal
