Apparatus for removing an indwelling tube

Image Number 5 for United States Patent #5429608.

An apparatus for the sanitary simultaneous removal of a plurality of indwelling tubes from an implantation site in a patient comprises a tube adapter that is connectable to the indwelling tubes. An impervious sleeve is fan-folded into a hub which extends around the tube adapter. In assembly the folded sleeve is retained by a shrink-wrapped plastic film. The sleeve can be extended for receiving the indwelling tubes therethrough and to encompass the implantation site. The indwelling tube and the implantation site are isolated from the environment when the distal open end of the sleeve is extended and applied about the implantation site and the indwelling tube is withdrawn into the sleeve. A drawstring is provided for closing the distal end of the sleeve after the tube has been withdrawn. The indwelling tubes can be maintained under suction or in connection with a drain during the removal operation.
