The Cook Double-Lumen Thal-Quick Chest Tube is designed to improve pleural drainage. The device’s 17-gage second lumen allows for increased aspiration or infusion, as the treatment channel can be used for additional drainage or substance infusion to permit pleural drainage. With a second lumen and 24-French size catheter, this version improves ease-of-use, placement of the device and patient comfort. The wire guide allows a quick and direct route to the pleural drainage site. The fitted chest tube inserter provides a smooth transition for insertion over the wire guide, enhancing navigation and placement of the chest tube.
