Chest drainage helps maintain respiratory function and hemodynamic stability by removing blood, fluid, or air from around your lungs or heart. Robotics, artificial intelligence, telemedicine, health apps and much more. The digital revolution is not bypassing the medical field. Quite the opposite: it is quickly heading towards our day-to-day work and influencing how we work in the OR, the ICU and on the ward.
And chest drainage systems have already started to become digital. Digital chest drainage systems were launched in 2007. Traditional systems that rely on external wall suction have long been outdated.
Professional vacuum systems are used to suction unwanted fluids from the body. These types of medical suction machines support multiple care settings, including the hospital OR and ICU, hospital ward, private clinics, and doctor’s practices.

Negative pressure wound therapy uses suction, tubing, and wound dressing to remove excess exudate and any infectious material that may be present in the wound. Negative pressure wound therapy, also called “wound vac” or “NPWT,” provides an ideal and clean environment to promote wound healing in acute or chronic wounds and second- and third-degree burns. Offering significant clinical benefits for large, chronic wounds and acute, complicated wounds, negative pressure wound therapy is used by healthcare teams and wound care specialists to support faster wound healing.
