    Chest Tube Question

    we currently use a heimlich valve at the end of our chest tubes for transport, we have a new md that thinks it is ok to connect a chest tube directly to wall (or aircraft/ambulance) suction canister without a water seal drainage device in line. i have read there are dry devices you can use in line, i don't know much about them. my question is has anyone ever connected a chest tube to suction tubing that goes straight to the suction canister connected to the suction head???
