CritiValve™ Thoracentesis Valve

Better connection, more secure and excellent chest venting during expiration,
places CritiValve™ in a league of its own…




The CritiValve, developed and designed by Be Safe Paramedical, is a one-way check valve that can be attached to a catheter following needle thoracostomy.


The CritiValve is secured to the catheter by means of a very effective luer lock. The 10cm tubing attached to the valve and luer lock provides an easy means to secure the valve and catheter to the chest wall by means of the goal-post strapping technique. This reduces the risk of catheter and valve displacement during transfer of the patient.
