ThoraQuik™ Now Available from Bound Tree Medical Europe

Telford, UK (19th March, 2012) – Bound Tree Medical Europe Ltd, a leading supplier of first aid equipment, hospital and medical supplies, has added the new ThoraQuik™ Chest Decompression Device to its extensive range.

The ThoraQuik™ is a simple and complete solution for treating suspected pneumothorax, in which case a quick response is central to improving the patient’s condition. The traditional method of treating pneumothorax is to use a large bore cannula or needle, which is suitable, but using the wrong size or product can lead to unnecessary difficulties. ThoraQuik™ is designed to avoid these problems, providing users with a safe and dependable way to treat pneumothorax.

ThoraQuik™ boasts various innovative features within its construction which aid treatment, including an incorporated one-way valve which allows air and fluid to pass out of the catheter without air entering the pleural cavity, as well as an ergonomic hub to limit the risk of catheter dislodgement and an adhesive underside to secure the device to the patient for greater stability.

“The ThoraQuik™ Chest Compression Device is a unique creation which is sure to make a considerable improvement to treating suspected pneumothorax,” a spokesperson for Bound Tree Medical Europe Ltd said. “With its large gauge cannula and atraumatic needle tip, the device allows for patients to be treated in a safer and more reliable way than ever before. This is one of the most innovative products to be added to our collection, and will ensure greater treatment for many patients the world over.”
