The innovative alternating flaps on the new Tiger Tube™ feeding tube from Cook Critical Care allow the gut to drag the device safely to the small bowel following bedside insertion, providing short-term enteral access without costly endoscopic procedures. Distal markers at every 10 cm provide visual confirmation of tube position, or you may confirm placement of the radiopaque tube under fluoroscopy. Plus, the Tiger Tube's 14 French size makes it optimal for delivering both nutrition and medications.
Supplied sterile in peel-open packages.
Intended for one-time use.
