  • Causa
    It has been identified that atrium trocar catheters are packaged with a label containing an icon that shows more holes (eyelets) than the product actually contains. this graphical icon shows there are 6 side holes on the trocar catheter; however, the correct number of eyelets on the trocar catheter is 2 side holes.To date, atrium has received two complaints of insufficient drainage, with injury, as a result of selecting trocar catheters that had fewer eyelets than displayed on the product label. although the use of a trocar catheter with two eyelets may be effective in most patients, the potential risks related to use of the trocar catheter with 2 eyelets are: incomplete drainage of pleural effusion or pneumothorax, the need for repeat chest tube or pleural drain insertion, and surgical site infection.
