External ventricular drainage kit
The Spiegelberg external ventricular drainage kit drains and collects cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) for external ventricular drainage. The kit contains a tube connector with a Luer-Lock for connection to the ventricular catheter or a probe with drainage function, a drip chamber and a replaceable drainage bag. The tube connector contains an access port. It also includes two three-way stopcocks for connection of a pressure transducer close to or away from the body, a pump chamber and a check valve. The drip chamber is aerated with a replaceable filter. All tube connectors except for the ones for the filter and drainage bag are permanently glued in place. The internal diameters of all connecting components and stopcocks are the same as that of the tube to avoid narrowing that can cause clogging.
