Video Tech Tip: Chest Tube Aspiration

    This 30-second video clip illustrates a technician aspirating a chest tube during a procedure. The sterile distal end of the extension set has been placed in a recently emptied saline irrigation bottle. This minimizes the risk for spillage and contamination and efficiently measures the aspirated fluid without use of a graduated cylinder.
