Rocket® Chest Drain Bottle

Chest Drain Bottle / Rocket Blue Single Bottle System. By Summit Surgical
Rocket® Blue Single Bottle

Most User-Friendly Chest Drain Bottle on the Market

Traditionally the simplest way to accomplish a chest drain is to set up a single bottle containing a prescribed amount of water, one short tube leading to the outside atmosphere functions as a vent; another leads from the patient and is submerged approximately 2cm below the surface of the water.

This creates an underwater seal, the most important element in pleural drainage. The water seal provides a low-resistance one-way valve that allows air and fluid to be pushed out of the pleural space by means of positive expiratory pressure and prevents atmospheric air from being drawn back in.

The Rocket® Single Bottle and tube set combine to provide the UK’s biggest selling chest drainage system.

It is comprised of a traditional underwater seal and is used almost universally as the product of choice after cardiac and thoracic surgery, in A&E departments and medical wards.
The simple functionality of the system in use and ease of set-up means that it is well suited for any condition requiring chest drainage.

Rocket® Seldinger Chest Drainage Kit

Benefits of Small Bore Catheterisation Combined with the Reliability of the Seldinger approach

The Rocket Seldinger Chest Drainage Safety Guard & Ward Procedure Packs combines the benefits of small bore catheterisation with the ease and reliability of the Seldinger approach whether under direct vision, x-ray screening, or ultrasound guidance. The set contains a new shorter 10cm dilator, a safety improvement made on the advice of the British Thoracic Society.

Small bore catheters have been shown to be as effective as larger drains without the disadvantage of patient discomfort.

The Rocket Seldinger Chest Drainage Pack is for percutaneous insertion of a chest tube for pleural drainage of fluid and air and is particularly suitable for:

  • Pneumothorax, spontaneous or iatrogenic
  • Effusions, benign or malignant, except those with high protein content.
  • Low viscosity empyema.
  • Improved patient comfort using small bore catheterisation.
  • Reliable insertion via Seldinger approach under direct vision, x-ray screening, or ultrasound guidance.
  • 10cm dilators with safety stop to minimise the risks of over-insertion associated with the traditional 20cm dilator.
  • Drapes and a gown are included in all PK coded packs in response to NPSA/2008/RRR3.
