Turkel™ safety pneumothorax tray is a preassembled disposable two-tiered procedure tray designed to separate prep and procedure components. The sequential arrangement of components reduces procedure time. Safety components feature the Turkel™ safety pneumothorax needle.
- Blunt, multi-side holed, spring-loaded inner cannula extends beyond needle bevel; protects underlying tissue (lung) from further, inadvertent penetration
- One-way duck bill valve in needle hub housing allows air and fluid to escape from the needle yet prevents atmospheric air from entering into the pleural space to prevent accidental pneumothorax during procedure
- Color change indicator in needle hub housing provides direct visualization of the position of the cannula as the needle moves through the chest wall and into the pleural space
