Chest and Thoracic Tubing Solutions - Kent Elastomer Products

A chest tube, also known as a chest drain or thoracic catheter, is a flexible plastic tube that is inserted through the chest wall during surgeries and other procedures to treat various medical conditions.

Chest and thoracic tubes are commonly used to treat collapsed lungs, lung infections, breathing difficulty, bleeding around lungs after trauma, fluid buildup due to another medical condition like cancer or pneumonia, or during surgery. Chest tubes are especially important during lung, heart, and esophageal surgeries. This product also helps doctors diagnose other conditions, such as lung damage and internal injuries.

Did you know KEP manufactures chest tubes for our customers in the medical and surgical industry from soft TPE in a range of external diameter sizes, as well as dip-molded Penrose drains? With standards to ensure consistent quality, our customers rely on KEP chest and thoracic tubing products to help doctors around the globe deliver lifesaving medical intervention and care.
