NeoMed Polyurethane Feeding Tubes
Feeding tubes soft medical grade polymers support nutritive sucking, developmental care and improved outcomes. A cost effective solution providing indwell time up to 30 days, minimizing the need for additional tube placements.
The semi-encapsulated radiopaque stripe and bold insertion markings to at least 32 cm help confirm placement. No DEHP, no BPANon-threaded HubIt has been shown that plugged-style closures such as NeoMed's non-threaded hub design have less bacterial growth than hubs with hidden reservoirs, threads, caps, or ridges.
Poor feeding tube hub design including non-swabbable threaded or recessed hubs and caps cause material pooling that allows residual EBM exposure to air and bacteria colonization to occur in less than 4 hours. Contaminated feeding tubes offer a pathway to the gut compromising the health of the gastro-intestinal system.
Distal Tips:-Our Polyurethane Feeding Tubes have open distal tips without sharp edges or hidden cavities. Large cut holes can allow tissue migration into the port holes, resulting in broken distal tips or torn/plugged tissue upon removal. Our feeding tube holes are precision drilled in, instead of cut. This allows for earlier patient discharge and thus lower healthcare costs.
