Thoracic Drainage

One of the topics we get most questions about, particularly at undergraduate level, is that of thoracic disease: “How do I learn how to do a pleural tap”; “Can I watch someone put a chest drain in”; “What size drain should I use” etc.  This is the DundeeChest thoracic drainage resource mini-site.  We will collate videos and useful resources here for quick reference.  Don’t forget that new information usually ends up on the blog first, so search by category, tag, or general search options.

You can download the Ninewells Chest Drain Insertion Care Bundle here.  If you are inserting a chest drain in Ninewells please place a bundle sticker in the notes, and also in the Chest Drain Insertion audit book in Ward 3.

Check back for more information as we update the blog.
