It’s Drain-Guard…

The Drain-Guard is intended to anchor percutaneous drainage catheters that are protruding from the patient’s skin in an angle approximately perpendicular to the patient’s skin surface.

The device consists of a skin-side surface with a skin friendly adhesive combined with a specially designed foam block that safely anchors catheters from 5 to 16 French. In addition, catheters are prevented from being expelled by the body and the secure anchoring of the catheter also prevents catheter movement enlarging the catheter exit site.

The soft foam support block can prevent kinking of the catheter. A transparent hydrocolloid cover allows continuous monitoring of the puncture site and provides an efficient protection against contamination

  • Reduces risk of accidental displacement of catheter
  • Safe anchoring and protection of catheter
  • Prevents contamination of puncture site from environment
  • Allows inspection of puncture site
  • Reduces catheter movement
  • Can prevent kinking of catheter

Safe anchoring of catheters

Drain-Guard is an anchoring device for percutaneous drainage catheters that are protruding from the patient’s skin in an angle approximately perpendicular to the patient’s skin surface. The device consists of a skin-side surface with a skin friendly adhesive combined with a specially designed foam block that safely anchors catheters from 5 to 16 French.

In addition, catheters are prevented from being expelled by the body and the secure anchoring of the catheter also prevents catheter movement which can enlarge the exit site & potentially cause leakage at the exit site.

The soft foam support block can prevent kinking of the catheter. A transparent hydrocolloid cover allows continuous monitoring of the puncture site and provides efficient protection against contamination.

For the sake of the patient

With Drain-Guard, the uncomfortable suturing of the catheter is substituted by the soft and pliable adhesive carrier offering substantially improved comfort to the patient. Because the hydrocolloid has been carefully tested for skin irritation, the risk of allergic reactions is minimal, even if a number of Drain-Guard devices are used consecutively on the same site.

The Drain-Guard gives the patient great freedom to move around without worrying about the catheter.

Easy to use

The Drain-Guard catheter anchoring device is easy to apply to the patient’s skin and changing of the device may even be carried out by a family member.
