f01: Digital thoracic drainage system.

Mentions: The device was used in a severely ill elderly male with hypertension, diabetes,arteriosclerosis, COPD, and lung cancer. At the time, the patient had bloody sputum withsome episodes of hemoptysis and a mass in the middle lobe. After lung resection, heremained on mechanical ventilation for 5 days, under intensive care. The patient alsohad an air leak from the tube, and, from postoperative day 2 onward, he was monitoredwith the Thopaz(r) digital system (Medela, Baar, Switzerland; Figure 1).
