Wound Drainage Reservoir
The wound drainage reservoir is designed to help after surgical procedures. The reservoir is specially designed for close wound drainage under low/negative pressure post-operatively with the option to use one catheter simultaneously. By using the reservoir, there's a reduced risk of contamination when compared to open wound drainage.

The Wound Drainage Reservoir is a small, disc-shaped device that is placed under the skin to collect fluid that drains from a wound. The reservoir is made of a soft, flexible material and has a small port on the top that allows for drainage. The port is connected to a tube that runs to a collection bag, which can be worn over the shoulder or hung on a bedpost. The Wound Drainage Reservoir is designed to help reduce swelling and keep the wound clean after surgery.
The Wound Drainage Reservoir is a device that helps to collect and measure wound drainage after surgery. It consists of a chamber that collects the drainage, a graduated cylinder to measure the amount of drainage, and a tube with a clamp that attaches to the drains in your wound. The reservoir is placed below your wound so that gravity can help to drain the fluid. You will need to empty the chamber when it gets full, which you can do by pouring the contents into the graduated cylinder. You can then measure the amount of drainage and record it on a chart. Your doctor will use this information to see how well your wound is healing and determine if you need more or less drainage. If you have any questions about how to use your Wound Drainage Reservoir, please contact your nurse or doctor.
1. Place the reservoir on a small table or other surface near the patient's bed.
2. Make sure the drainage tube is properly connected to the reservoir.
3. Place the patient in a supine position with their head slightly elevated.
4. Carefully insert the drainage tube into the patient's wound, being careful not to cause any further injury.
5. Once the drainage tube is in place, gravity will do its job and begin draining fluid from the wound into the reservoir.
6. It is important to empty the reservoir regularly, as too much fluid accumulation can lead to complications.
After any surgical procedure, it is important to monitor the wound site for drainage. To help with this, a wound drainage reservoir can be used. This type of device is placed over the wound site and helps to collect any drainage that may occur. It is important to keep the wound area clean and dry. The reservoir can be emptied as needed and the contents disposed of properly. If there is excessive drainage, or the wound does not appear to be healing properly, it is important to contact your doctor.
Once the surgical procedure is completed and the wound closed, the drainage reservoir may be inserted. The reservoir is designed to help drain any excess fluids from the wound site. It is important to keep the reservoir clean and free of any debris or build-up. The recommended way to do this is to flush it with sterile water or saline solution every day.
