ATMOS S 201 Thorax
Digital cardiothoracic drainage with maximum safety
The powerful ATMOS S 201 Thorax is the ideal solution for cardiothoracic drainage patients in cardiac and thoracic surgery. Particularly for patients with large air leaks and large amounts of fluid, the ATMOS S 201 Thorax offers optimised cardiothoracic drainage therapy. It provides a high degree of safety thanks to the especially rapid, controlled vacuum build-up of the suction prescribed by the doctor. This safety feature is essential particularly in critical situations, such as when draining a haematoma or in the event of strong coagulation.

Fast, automatic, visual and acoustic warning messages assist nursing staff in potentially dangerous situations. This feature reduces time-consuming monitoring tasks for staff.
Objective therapy data
- Rapid evaluation of the clinical situation thanks to immediate recognition of therapy data on the front display
- Safe decisions thanks to objective therapy data displayed in real time and in a graph showing the course of therapy up to 12 days
Support for documentation
- Recording, storage, and read-out capability of patient therapy data
- Easy processing of therapy data read-outs is possible in patient documentation, studies, etc.
Transparent secretion canister
For patient indications involving very high amounts of secretion and the use of large rinsing quantities to clean the pleural cavity, this large secretion canister volume is an ideal solution.

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. The bubbles in traffic light colours also illustrate the size of the air leak.
Air leak is shown continuously in real-time numbers in ml/min or l/min on the display. In addition, flow is visualised by means of bubbles in traffic light colours. 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.
Yes, the secretion canister of the ATMOS S 201 Thorax can be used with a filled water lock for temporary gravity drainage, for example in MRI examinations. The secretion canister must be placed below the patient’s chest.
