Most nurses working in an acute hospital setting will encounter patients with chest drains and underwater seal drainage at some point in their careers. This article is primarily written for the non-specialist nurse who requires a good working knowledge of chest drain insertion and underwater seal drainage. The article discusses the indications for chest drain insertion and the merits of different approaches, and provides a detailed analysis of the nursing care of a patient with a chest drain.
