ATMOS C 051 Thorax
for mobile patients
ATMOS C 051 Thorax
The solution for maximum mobility
The compact and light ATMOS C 051 Thorax is used for patients with air leaks and pleural effusions as well as for surgical openings of the thorax in cardiothoracic surgery and in pneumology. Thanks to this battery-operated device and its flexible carrying and positioning options, patients can regain unrestricted mobility sooner.

The ATMOS C 051 Thorax has a suction capacity of 5 l/min and a secretion canister with 800 ml capacity. This device is ideal for standard patients in the fields of lung surgery, pneumology, general surgery, intensive care, and emergency medicine. The ATMOS S 201 Thorax, on the other hand, has a suction capacity of 18 l/min and a secretion canister volume of 2000 ml. This device is therefore ideally suited for specific patient indications. Above all, the powerful all-rounder is employed in cardiac surgery, but also for lung surgery patients who have large air leaks, such as patients with emphysema or large amounts of viscous fluid (e.g. empyema or chylothorax).
Yes, the hose system from ATMOS can be used flexibly for both digital cardiothoracic drainage devices from ATMOS. This feature helps make storage simple for hospitals and clinics. In addition, the hose system makes it easy to change from the ATMOS S 201 Thorax to the ATMOS C 051 Thorax when the patient's condition improves and to promote mobility.
Besides the set target vacuum, the display also shows the actual vacuum, which is measured at the patient’s end of the hose. In addition, the patient's air leak is shown objectively as flow in ml/min or in l/min for one litre or more. In key lock mode, the flow for at least one hour is also shown by means of bubbles in traffic light colours. If the average flow is below 450 ml/min for one hour, the flow is no longer displayed in bubbles but in a trend display of the last 24 hours.
Air leak is shown continuously in real-time numbers in ml/min or l/min on the display. In addition, the flow for at least 1 hour is visualised by means of bubbles in traffic light colours. If the average flow is below 450 ml/min for 1 hour, the air leak is shown in a trend display over the last 24 hours on the main display. The flow is visualised as an hourly average value in bars over the course of treatment. As soon as the hourly average value of the air leak is less than 150 ml/min, the flow scaling of the trend display becomes even more detailed. Air leaks during the therapy process are also illustrated in the graphs. The long-time display shows therapy data for up to 12 days, and certain time segments, for example, can be viewed individually using the zoom functions. The graphic short-time display can also visualise tests that can provide an indicator for a blocked thoracic catheter or for making the decision whether to remove the catheter.
With the ATMOS S 201 Thorax, the air leak can also be visualised conventionally by means of the optional water lock in the 2000 ml secretion canister.
Yes, visual and acoustic warning messages indicate the reasons for errors and show information on how to remedy them on the display. This feature reduces time-consuming monitoring tasks for nursing staff.
The automatic hose-rinsing function uses air, not liquid. A valve located inside the device directly at the connection for the measuring and rinsing hose opens and pushes air through the measuring and rinsing hose to the patient’s end of the hose. Due to the applied suction, the air is automatically diverted into the secretion hose, and the secretion, blood coagula, etc. in the hose are automatically flushed into the secretion canister. This makes milking obsolete for nursing staff, and the dangerous siphon effect cannot occur. On default settings, the hose is rinsed every 3 minutes.
The hose-rinsing period can be adjusted between 1 and 20 minutes. Immediately following an operation, especially after cardiac surgery, it may be advisable to rinse the hose more frequently (e.g. 1 minute) to prevent the formation of coagula/blockages in the catheter.
