Keep chest tubes clear with PleuraFlow® Active Clearance Technology ™ (ACT). Developed by cardiac surgeons, PleuraFlow ACT is a unique system that proactively clears chest tubes and prevents retention of blood in the chest cavity. ACT technology is used to maintain tube patency and clears the pathway to a successful recovery before and after discharge. The Clearance Loop is composed of a PTFE-coated guide wire that has a loop set on its distal end, bent at a 90o angle. The Clearance Loops is sized such that it cannot exit the end of the drainage tube or the side holes; it is magnetically driven by an attached internal magnet coupled to an external magnet contained within the shuttle assembly. The Clearance Loop enables proactive clearance of thrombus obstruction from the chest tube and provides real-time patency feedback.
