PleuraFlow® Active Clearance Technology® (ACT) is a unique system that proactively removes clots formed inside the chest tube to prevent or minimize chest tube occlusion. A patent chest tube enables evacuation of blood and ﬂuid from the operative site after closure of the surgical wound and reduces retained blood.

“I am convinced that blood orphaned in the thoracic space after cardiac surgery can cause not only the acute problems we all see, but also more pernicious and chronic inflammatory consequences that affect many organs detrimentally. It is vital that chest drain patency is maintained in the first 24 hours after surgery and there is no better way to do that than PleuraFlow.”
