Looking for pole clamp for pleurovac

  1. Trying to find a certain device: a horizontal pole clamp that can attach to an IV pole for hanging pleurovacs. Who makes them? Currently only taping the pleurovac to the pole--not a safe idea. Thanks for the info!

    Try Safepole. They have Pleurovac hooks. Very safe pole, hence the name. www.safepole.net

    funny when I worked on a respiratory floor--so we got patients with pleurovacs they would only let us put them on the floor or on the very bottom of the bed/siderail but encouraged the floor. I was always nervous I would tip the thing over. The RTs told us this....said that they had to be below the level of the chest tube. It's been a while since I worked there but.......I always thought that they had to be lower then the chest after hearing that all the time.... ???
    So I never heard of putting them on a pole.
