f03: Sistema digital para drenagem torácica.

Mentions: O dispositivo foi utilizado em um paciente idoso grave, hipertenso, diabético eportador de arteriosclerose, DPOC e neoplasia pulmonar. Apresentava, na época,escarro hemóptico com alguns episódios de hemoptise e uma massa em lobo médio. Após aressecção pulmonar, permaneceu em ventilação mecânica por cinco dias, em terapiaintensiva. Também apresentou perda aérea pelo dreno e a partir do segundo diapós-operatório foi monitorizado pelo sistema digital Thopaz(r) (Medela,Baar, Suíça; Figura 1).
