EVD kits

External ventricular drainage kit

The Spiegelberg external ventricular drainage kit drains and collects cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) for external ventricular drainage. The kit contains a tube connector with a Luer-Lock for connection to the ventricular catheter or a probe with drainage function, a drip chamber and a replaceable drainage bag. The tube connector contains an access port. It also includes two three-way stopcocks for connection of a pressure transducer close to or away from the body, a pump chamber and a check valve. The drip chamber is aerated with a replaceable filter. All tube connectors except for the ones for the filter and drainage bag are permanently glued in place. The internal diameters of all connecting components and stopcocks are the same as that of the tube to avoid narrowing that can cause clogging.

External ventricular drainage kit with plate and clamp

The Spiegelberg external ventricular drainage kit with plate and clamp drains and collects cerebrospinal fluid for external ventricular drainage. The kit comprises a tube connector with a Luer-Lock for connection to the ventricular catheter, a drip chamber, and a replaceable drainage bag. The tube connector contains an access port. The Spiegelberg EVD kit also includes two three-way stopcocks for connection of a pressure transducer close to or away from the body, a pump chamber and a check valve. The drip chamber is aerated with a replaceable filter. The drip chamber is mounted on a plate with scales in mmHg and cmH2O, which allows exact positioning at the patient´s foramen of Monroe level. All tube connectors except for the ones for the filter and drainage bag are permanently glued in place. The internal diameters of all connecting components and stopcocks are identical to prevent potential blockages.

Technical data

External ventricular drainage bag

The Spiegelberg external ventricular drainage bag drains and collects cerebrospinal fluid for external ventricular drainage, external subdural drainage and external lumbar drainage. It is indicated whenever levelling of the drained quantity and positioning at height are not essential. The ventricular drainage bag has a tube with a Luer-Lock connector for connection to the catheter. An access port and a check valve are integrated in the bag. The external ventricular drainage bag is aerated by a replaceable filter, which is also available from Spiegelberg. 

Technical data

Filter for external ventricular drainage kit

The Spiegelberg filter for the external ventricular drainage kit has a hydrophobic diaphragm and a special bulbous design to minimise the possibility of blockage in contact with cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) compared to conventional standard filters (disc filters).
