Chest Tube Drainage System
by Mary Pat Ulicny - Tuesday, June 22, 2010, 12:36 PM

We are working on a scenario with a functioning chest tube drainage system. We have access to wall suction, and can simulate gentle bubbling in the water seal chamber.  However, we are having difficulty with the simulation of "tidaling."  Does anyone have any ideas regarding the simulation of tidaling?  Thanks.

Mary Pat;  We do this with a ventilator at Quinnipiac University.  See Dr. Cordeau's post on April 8 for details.  Darlene Rogers
