Aspira Catheter has reddish fluid in bulb


Recommended Posts

We were happy that my boyfriend's lung hasn't needed draining much at all, when we discovered a bit of fluid in the bulb that was darker than the usual amber color. Reddish. Does this indicate blood??

Hi there,

I don't have any experience with this kind of catheter so I can't answer your question, unfortunately.  I suggest you call the doctor's office and ask about this.
