How to change the Denver Drainage Bottle?

  1. Wash your hands thoroughly.
  2. Remove Pleurx Vacuum bottle with drainage line from the outer pouch. Keep the bottle near the blue wrap and place the access tip on the blue wrap. If in case the cover falls off of the access tip, make sure you do not touch the tip with your hands or anything non-sterile. It is important that the access tip remains sterile.
  3. Uncoil the drainage line after removing the paper tape from the drainage line. Place the access tip on the blue wrap.
  4. Close the roller clamp completely by rolling the wheel on the roller clamp toward the bottle.
  5. Remove the cover from the access tip by twisting it and pulling gently. Discard the cover. Set the access tip back on the sterile blue wrap.
  6. To remove the used bottle, pull the access tip of the used bottle out of the valve in a firm, smooth motion. Set the used drainage line down.
  7. Pick up the new drainage line and insert the access tip securely into the catheter valve. You will feel and hear a click when the access tip and valve are securely connected.
  8. Note that it is normal to feel some discomfort or pain when draining fluid. If you experience discomfort or pain at the time of draining, roll the wheel on the roller clamp toward the bottle to slow or stop the flow of fluid sometimes. If it does not feel better after doing this, or you experience severe pain contact your doctor or nurse. Pain might be an indication of infection.
  9. Do not drain more than 1000 ml of fluid from your chest or 2000 ml of fluid from your abdomen at any one time.
  10. The support clip on the vacuum bottle ensures that the vacuum seal on the bottle is not broken before you are ready. Remove the support clip by grasping the upper part of the flange and pulling outward.
  11. Hold the bottle steady with one hand and push the white “T” plunger down with the other hand to puncture the foil seal. The vacuum in the bottle will pull the flexible bottle cap down.

How to start draining fluid using Pleurx Bottle??

  • Roll the wheel on the roller clamp away from the vacuum bottle to begin drainage. When fluid begins to flow into the drainage line you may partially close the roller clamp to slow the flow of fluid by rolling the wheel on the roller clamp toward the bottle.
  • The flow into the bottle may slow down when the fluid is almost completely drained. When the flow stops or the bottle is filled, completely close the roller clamp by rolling the wheel on the roller clamp toward the bottle. Drainage will usually take 5 –15 minutes.
  • After the fluid drainage stops pull the access tip out of the valve in a firm, smooth motion.
  • Set the used drainage line down.
  • Clean the catheter valve with a new alcohol pad. Discard the alcohol pad.
  • Place the new cap over the catheter valve and twist it clockwise until it clicks into its locked position. Cap might feel loose until it is locked into place.

Question

tamara     09/29/2014

How often should I drain the fluid from my chest?

Answer

Customer Care    10/01/2014

You should drain fluid every one to two days. If you keep your chest fairly free of fluid, you will be less likely to feel short of breath. You will also be more likely to permanently stop the fluid from building up, so that the catheter can be removed. Consult your doctor if you want to drain more or less frequently.

Question

Gary     09/19/2014

Are there any precautions?

Answer

Customer Care    09/20/2014

  • Do not drain more than 1000 ml of fluid from your chest at any one time.
  • It is normal to feel some pain when draining fluid. If you feel pain in your chest when draining, clamp the drainage line to slow or stop the flow of fluid for a few minutes. If you don’t feel better after doing this, contact your nurse or doctor.
  • Keep the valve on your Pleurx Pleural Catheter and the access tip on the drainage line clean. Keep them away from other objects to help avoid contamination.
  • Do not put anything except the access tip of the drainage line into the Pleurx Pleural Catheter valve, since this could damage the valve. A damaged valve might let air be pulled into your chest cavity or let fluid leak out through the valve.
  • When not draining, the clamp on the drainage line must be completely closed or the vacuum in the bottle may be lost.
  • Make sure that the valve and the access tip are locked together when draining. If they are accidentally separated, they may become contaminated and the vacuum in the bottle may be lost.
