The Curaplex Russell PneumoFix™ Kit contains the Russell PneumoFix™ decompression needle (12 gauge), a ChloraPrep 3mL applicator, and a 2-pack of Curaplex® Tactical Occlusive Chest Seals (T.O.C.S.). These items are conveniently packed in a vaccuum-sealed bag for compact storage.
The Russell PneumoFix is a sterile chest decompression device designed for the management of tension pneumothorax, simple pneumothorax, and pleural effusion.
Designed by practicing clinicians who understand the limitations of conventional equipment, the Russell PneumoFix has many features that make it a truly useful decompression needle for emergency care providers.
- For medical professionals, use of the Russell PneumoFix is quick, simple, and intuitive.
- Unlike the intravenous cannula, used historically in an improvised way for the management of tension pneumothorax, the Russell PneumoFix is designed specifically for this purpose.
- The Russell PneumoFix has been designed to be inserted without the need for a scalpel or skin incision.
- The device incorporates a Veress-tipped needle to minimize risk of injury to lung tissue.
- The 11cm long catheter is long enough to reach the pleural cavity of the vast majority of patients.
- Low pressure one-way valve allows air and fluid out but nothing in.
- Graduated markings and X-ray detectable catheter for depth recording and accurate localization at hospital.
- 12-Gauge catheter allows for rapid venting of air in tension pneumothorax.
- Material chosen which minimizes the risk of kinking of the catheter.
