What to buy with Jackson Pratt Drain


How does the Jackson-Pratt Flat Drains work?

Your drain will automatically suction fluid out when the bulb is compressed. The bulb has to be compressed very well and the drain tab has to be closed in order for the suction to work. When the bulb can maintain its compressed shape, it is a sign that suction is in effect.

How to empty the Jackson-Pratt Flat Silicone Drain without Trocar Kit?

  • Make sure your hands are thoroughly washed with soap and water before you empty the drain.
  • The drain can be emptied by opening the tab. You will be given a measuring cup empty the fluid into this. Record the amount of fluid and discard the fluid in the toilet.
  • Please record the time and amount of fluid.
  • After you empty, compress the bulb (as flat as you can) and replace the tab to re-establish the suction.
  • The color of the drainage changes from red to a yellow over time.
  • There may be red stringy material in the drainage.
  • These are not blood clots, This material does, however, tend to block the tubing.
  • You may need to "milk" or “strip” the tubing.
  • To do this, use either alcohol wipes (wrap the wipe around the tubing) or put lotion on your fingertips (to facilitate a smoother glide on the tubing) and pinch and pull gently on the tubing (flattening the tube).
  • This will move the stingy material down the tube and prevent clots from forming.

How often should the Jackson Pratt drain be emptied?

  • The drain should be emptied as often as possible so that the bulb can be compressed fully to maintain suction.
  • In general, this is usually done every four to six hours the first few days until the amount decreases.
  • The drain should remain in place until your doctor tells you it is okay to be removed.
  • Sometimes, after the drain is removed, the fluid may re-accumulate and swell at the surgical site.
  • This fluid is called seroma.
  • If it should occur, this is not an emergency; however, call and inform your coordinator.

  • Wash the site gently with soap and rinse the area with warm water. Pat the area dry.
  • Inspect the site, using a mirror if necessary. It’s normal to have:
    • Slight redness
    • Mild swelling
    • Tenderness
  • A small amount of clear or slightly bloody drainage on the gauze pad

Caring for skin with reconstructive surgery

If you had reconstructive surgery, follow these guidelines after your drain is removed.
  • Change the bandage every 12 hours as needed.
  • Your surgeon will let you know how long to wait before showering after your drain is removed.
  • Don’t take a tub bath or submerge the area in water (such as in a bathtub or swimming pool) until 6 weeks after your reconstructive surgery.
