Abstract: Background: A prospective study was done to evaluate the influence of clamp usage on clot formation inside thoracic drains. Methods: Each drain was weighed soon after removal; they were then washed, dried and weighed again. The difference between the first andsecondw eights was taken as the amount of clot deposit formed. Results: We found more clots accumulated inside the drains that were temporarily obstructed by the clamp. Conclusion: In this study, there were more clots formation inside thoracic drains clamped, even if they were occluded intermottently. This can lead thoracic drains to function improperly. The discussion about the correct usage of thoracic drains must he a subject for educational programs for physicians and nurses, to aim for the safest use of this widely used and highly efficient system.
Conduziu-se este estudo prospectivo a fim de avaliar-se a influência do uso da braçadeira sobre o acúmulo de coágulos dentro dos drenos pleurais. Os drenos pleurais foram pesados logo após sua retirada, lavados e secados e pesados novamente. A diferença entre a primeira e a segunda pesagem foi admitida como a quantidade de coágulos acumulada. Houve maior acúmulo de coágulo nos drenos temporariamente obstruídos por braçadeira em relação àqueles não obstruídos. Notou-se, neste estudo, maior acúmulo de coágulo dentro de drenos pleurais obstruídos, mesmo que intermitentemente, o que pode levar ao mau funcionamento de todo o sistema de drenagem. A discussão sobre o correto uso dos drenos pleurais deve ser constante e fazer parte de programas de educação continuada para médicos e enfermagem, a fim de que este sistema, amplamente utilizado e altamente eficiente, seja otimizado
