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.
- True jejunal feeding
- Alternating flaps along the feeding tube provide assistance to advance the tube forward within the gut and may help prevent migration once placed
- Catheter with markings every 10 cm, starting at distal 40-100 cm, provides visual confirmation of tube position
- May be placed without the need of an endoscope by a physician or nurse
