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.
