What is a Drain? | Dr. Yavuz Ozsular

What Is A Drain? And Why Is It Used?

A drain is a thin plastic tube that gets placed into you during surgery to evacuate excess body fluids and blood that can occur after the surgery. It contains an accumulation chamber on one end that creates a vacuum effect via negative pressure. Your nurse will closely monitor the drain whilst you’re resting, and inform you on your status accordingly.

Drains are generally removed 24 – 72 hours after surgery, upon Dr. Ozsular’s approval.

Don’t forget to inform your nurse if the fluid either isn’t flow from your drain or has accumulated.
