The Reactor ® from Sharp Medical Products

A Revolutionary Chest Tube Insertion Device

The Reactor ® Allows Rapid and Controlled Entry into the Thoracic Cavity with a Smaller Incision

NOTE: This product is currently unavailable.

Placement of a chest tube into the thoracic cavity has been around for more than 100 years with virtually no change in technique. The Reactor from Sharp Medical Products offers medical professionals a revolutionary way to insert chest tubes into the thoracic cavity using a minimally invasive technique.

The Reactor allows medium to large chest tubes, up to a 36Fr, to be inserted with a smaller incision and faster than the open technique.

Reactor Advantages Include:

      • Smaller incision of ~1cm
      • A rotating and retracting blade that “carves” instead of punctures through tissue
      • An oval shaft that easily fits between the rib anatomy
      • A chest wall “tunnel” to create a constant narrow diameter tunnel through the chest wall
      • Less time required to insert the tube


Train and practice chest tube insertion with the T³: Tube Thoracostomy Trainer from Sharp Medical. Learn more.
