Thoracic Suction Regulator

The Ohio Medical® Thoracic Vacuum Regulator brings precision and safety to your pleural, mediastial and other low suction applications. It is designed to maintain accurate and stable negative pressures at low levels of suction while maximising flow rates. It compensates for positive pressure in the patient line (e.g. patient coughing) with a positive pressure relief valve which immediately opens to vent the pressure.

The thoracic vacuum regulator also provides high flow response to air leaks in the lung. It adds convenience, flexibility, and reliability to disposable or reusable chest drainage systems, and can add cost savings when used in conjunction with disposables. The regulator must be used with an underwater seal and collection bottle (disposable or reusable). It is a silent alternative to noisy bubbling water manometers.
