Chest Tube Drainage System Monitoring and Care



Chest Tube Drainage System Monitoring and Care





Maintaining and troubleshooting a patient’s chest tube keeps the chest tube functioning properly and prevents infection. As part of this process, the nurse is responsible for making respiratory and thoracic assessments, obtaining vital signs that reflect effectiveness of therapy or impending complications, and knowing the appropriate interventions to perform in response to changes in the patient’s therapy.
