The Decompression Needles from China factory is mainly used for thoracentesis and drainage. Its main function is to puncture patients with pleural effusion to drain pleural effusion, or to draw pus in the pleural cavity to treat empyema. It can also be injected into the pleural cavity. , as the treatment of disease. The China Decompression Needles is mainly composed of a puncture needle and a three-way device. Before performing thoracentesis, the patient's pleural effusion should be located by color Doppler ultrasound. Select the puncture site, disinfect the puncture skin, explain the puncture risk and process to the patient and their family members, and perform the operation after obtaining informed consent.

But how to use the China Decompression Needles from Manufacturer? Let me show you the secret.


1. Inform the patient of the procedure to be performed.

2. Confirm the acupuncture position (4th or 5th intercostal midaxillary line anterior).

3. Disinfect from inside to outside with alcohol cotton pads in concentric circles.

4. Secure the skin and insert the needle at a 90-degree angle.

5. When gas leaks, fix the hard needle and push the soft needle to the bottom.

6. Pull out the hard needle and throw it into the sharps recycling box.

7. Secure the soft needle.

8. Repeatedly observe the breathing condition of the injured person. If a blood clot blocks the catheter, it may be necessary to perform acupuncture decompression again.

In American TV series, you can see that doctors often use trocars to relieve pneumothorax in trauma patients. The patient may be having trouble breathing or has been in cardiac arrest. The doctor inserts a long thin needle straight into the patient's chest wall, and the patient is immediately saved.

This technique is thoracentesis, which is also translated as (Needle Decompression in China). When using a trocar for thoracentesis decompression, doctors found that the chest wall of some patients is too thick, and the 14G/16G trocar may not be able to enter the pleura. Cavity (the space between the parietal pleura and the visceral pleura, where air accumulates during pneumothorax, and it should be negative pressure under normal conditions). A trocar with a length of at least 6 cm is sufficient.

Therefore, the decompression needle from China factory came into being. ARS is similar to a trocar, but with a longer length and is designed in the form of a "writing pen", which is easy to carry.The China Decompression needles can be seen in many tactical first aid kits.Commonly used items include chest seals, nasopharyngeal tubes, etc.

Tension pneumothorax is a life-threatening condition in which excess air is introduced into the pleural space surrounding the lung, either through trauma to the chest cavity or as air leaks spontaneously from the lung itself. Air trapped in the pleural cavity causes the lungs to separate from the chest wall, disrupting normal breathing mechanisms. A pneumothorax may be small and not convert into tension, but when air is trapped in the pleural cavity significantly and inflates in volume, this abnormal increase in air pressure causes the lungs to shrink and collapse, resulting in respiratory distress. This pressure also pushes the mediastinum (including the heart and its great vessels) to change the central position, causing blood to fail to return to the heart and reducing cardiac output. Spontaneous pneumothorax tension causes chest pain, extreme shortness of breath, respiratory failure, hypoxia, tachycardia, and hypotension. They need to be relieved urgently when a patient is under extreme circumstances.

Spontaneous tension pneumothorax is clearly managed with procedures that allow the removal of trapped air, such as insertion of a chest tube. However, chest tube materials are generally not available in hospital settings. Palliative measures are required in deteriorating patients before or while chest tube material is collected. In these cases, emergency needle thoracic (also known as "needle decompression") is performed. Simply put, it is the insertion of a large hole needle or cannula through the chest wall and pleural cavity to allow air to escape into the pleural cavity. If the catheter or cannula is not immediately available, the procedure may be performed with a long, large-bore needle attached to a syringe. Insufficient space in the chest cavity where air can be drawn with a syringe. The metal needle cannot be left in the pleural cavity, as the pointed tip may cause further damage; therefore, it needs to inhale air from the chest wall once.
