Thoracic Drainage Catheters

Atrium offers a complete family of high-performance thoracic and mediastinal drain catheters tailored to suit your specific needs, each crafted of cutting-edge materials, each upholding the Atrium commitment to patient safety and comfort.

HydraGlide™ Coated Silicone

For enhanced drainage and patient comfort...
HydraGlide Permanent, covalently bonded heparin complex inhibits clot formation.
Ultra low coefficient of friction helps reduce mechanical irritation to heart and lung tissues.
Superior strength reduces risk of tearing or breaking.
Soft, kink-resistant silicone conforms easily to anatomy for improved patient comfort.

Atrium's soft, kink-resistant, superior strength silicone catheter is now available with our patented HydraGlide™ coating – a permanent, covalently bonded heparin complex that inhibits clot formation and reduces mechanical irritation to heart & lung tissues due to ultra-low coefficient of friction.

Atrium’s premium quality silicone chest tube provides unsurpassed high tear strength to reduce the risk of tearing or breaking as well as enhancing drainage visibility. While the flared connector tip provides easy stab wound placement and fast, secure connection to chest drain tubing, the soft silicone conforms easily to anatomy for improved patient comfort and maximum fluid and air evacuation.

HydraGlide™ XL Extended Length Coated Silicone
Extended Length Catheter with 15-18 Eyelets
HydraGlide Permanent, covalently bonded heparin complex inhibits clot formation.
Ultra low coefficient of friction helps reduce mechanical irritation to heart and lung tissues.
Superior strength reduces risk of tearing or breaking.
Soft, kink-resistant silicone conforms easily to anatomy for improved patient comfort.

The all new HydraGlide XL™ coated silicone catheter is a brand new catheter technology designed specifically for chest drainage following cardiac and thoracic surgery. The revolutionary HydraGlide XL is a small caliber, super-flexible chest tube with increased hole perforation length and multiple drainage eyelet locations. The new extended-length design is also fully croppable at either end for convenient length adjustment. Flow model tests have confirmed Atrium's superior air and fluid drainage capacity vs. conventional silicone channel drains.* The lower profile 20 and 24 Fr. sized catheters are made of soft, but kink-resistant silicone with a unique wall construction that conforms to the chest anatomy for improved patient comfort and increased drainage performance. The Hydraglide XL is made from a next generation high tear strength silicone compound which helps reduce the risk of tearing or breaking. Atrium's exclusive "thrombus reduction technology" aids in clot management and offers more "occlusion free" performance than uncoated silicone drains for improved patient care.

Atrium's advanced HydraGlide coating technology features trace amounts of Heparin covalently bonded to and immobilized into the surface of the hydrophilic coating to further reduce adherent clot formation in and around the collection holes and luminal surface of the catheter. The slippery hydrophilic coating has an extremely low coefficient of friction which has been reported to greatly improve patient comfort and ease removal by reducing tissue adhesion to the catheter material. The patented hydrophilic surface may also aid in wound healing after catheter removal. When choice in chest tube selection and uninterrupted drainage performance really counts, make the right choice with Hydraglide™ XL ...the new standard in small caliber silicone catheters from Atrium.
