The Russell PneumoFix® is a sterile chest decompression device designed for the management of tension pneumothorax, simple pneumothorax, and pleural effusion. 

Designed by practicing clinicians who understand the limitations of conventional equipment, the Russell PneumoFix® has many features that make it a truly useful tool for the emergency care provider.

  • For medical professionals, use of the Russell PneumoFix® is quick, simple, and intuitive. 
  • Unlike the intravenous cannula, used historically in an improvised way for the management of tension pneumothorax, the Russell PneumoFix® is designed specifically for this purpose. 
  • The Russell PneumoFix® has been designed to be inserted without the need for a scalpel or skin incision. 
  • The device incorporates a Veress-tipped needle to minimize risk of injury to lung tissue. 
  • 11cm long catheter – long enough to reach the pleural cavity of the vast majority of patients 
  • Low pressure one-way valve to allow air and fluid out but nothing in 
  • Graduated markings and X-ray detectable catheter for depth recording and accurate localization at hospital 
  • 12-Gauge catheter allows for rapid venting of air in tension pneumothorax 
  • Material chosen minimizes the risk of kinking of the catheter
