Application and advantages of medical 3 way stopcock in thoracocentesis

Operation method: After the routine puncture operation, connect the puncture needle to one end of the 3 way stopcock, connect the syringe or drainage bag to the side hole of the 3 way stopcock, when replacing the syringe, close the on-off valve on the 3 way stopcok, and the medicine can be injected into the cavity. Inject from the other side of the hole, draining and injecting drugs can be alternately performed.

Advantage 1.
Simplified operation procedures: conventionally use a rubber tube to connect the puncture needle for thoraco-abdominal puncture and drainage. Since the rubber tube is not easy to fix, two people are required to perform the operation. To prevent air from entering the thoracic and abdominal cavity. After using the 3 way stopcock, the puncture needle is easy to replaced as long as the valve of the 3 way stopcock is closed, and the operation can be done by one person.

Advantage 2.
Reduced infection: The rubber tube used for conventional thoraco-abdominal puncture is sterilized and used repeatedly, which is easy to cause cross-infection. The medical 3 way stopcock is a disposable sterilized item, which avoids cross-infection.
