Feature & Benefits

A NEW KIND OF FREEDOM

The Aspira Drainage System is a compassionate home treatment option for end-stage cancer patients with pleural effusions and malignant ascites. Aspira allows patients to manage their symptoms at home, eliminating the need for frequent hospital visits.

Patient Comfort

Gravity-based design with siphon assist produces a consistent pressure flow for minimized discomfort.

Ease-Of-Use

After connecting the drainage line to the catheter valve, one gentle squeeze will initiate drainage. With the Aspira Drainage System, there is no risk of accidentally discharging vacuum. Vacuum is activated with one squeeze of the manual pump.

Faster Drainage

Faster drainage flow rate means more downtime for the patient.


MORE CONSISTENT PRESSURE DURING DRAINAGE

The Aspira Drainage System is designed to drain quickly without the use of high pressure. Low, consistent vacuum pressure is preferable to high vacuum pressure that may cause patient discomfort.
