Chest Tubes

  1. Does anyone know of a good site to review chest tubes. Unfortunately, I was out the day we watched a video about chest tubes (Pleuravac systems) I want to better understand how they work, but I can't find any site that helps me out with them.

    In addition to Mark's site, if you type in pleuravac chest tube system or any combo of that into google you get quite a few hits...

    Carcha, does your school keep its videos in a library? You might want to ask if you can check it out.
