How does a Heimlich valve work?

The Pneumostat valve is a one-way valve attached to your chest tube. It lets air and a small amount of fluid to leave your chest until the lung heals.

A Heimlich valve is a one-way valve that allows air to flow out of your chest through a chest tube when you breathe out (exhale), but prevents air from entering your chest when you breathe in.

Assess chest tube insertion site to ensure sterile dressing is dry and intact. Check insertion site for subcutaneous emphysema. Dressing should remain dry and intact; no drainage holes should be visible in the chest tube. Dressing is generally changed 24 hours post-insertion, then every 48 hours.
