These include: enhanced circulation, particularly to the lower extremities, earlier restoration of normal pulmonary function; improved patient mood with increasing independence; and decreased need for sedation and pain control drugs. Early ambulation can also play a role in reducing length of hospital stay, which equates to dollars saved by the hospital.
That's why Atrium developed the Pneumostat Chest Drain Valve. Pneumostat is a total, unique package, unlike any older chest drain valves.
Whether you have the need to treat a patient with simple pneumothorax or are transitioning a patient off of a traditional chest drain to a smaller, more mobile device, Pneumostat gives you and your patients the ultimate low-cost solution.
