- Thermo-sensitive polyurethane material is stiffer out of the package and softens up to 40% when warmed to body temperature. It then remains flexible for prolonged use - Stiffness facilitates ease of insertion for the clinician. Softness provides optimum patient comfort. Up to 30 days dwell time equals fewer tube placements.
- Durable polyurethane material - Allows for thin wall construction to increase the inner diameter. Increases flow rates and minimizes clogging issues then properly maintained. This polyurethane is DEHP free.
- Transparent - Allows clinician to see the color, consistency and clogs of fluid.
- Colored radiopaque Line - Purple readily identifies tube as an enteral feeding line and is easily detectable by x-ray.
- Attached cap to cover proximal end - Cap can be closed during periods of non-use or transport.
- Sterile -Provides optimal protection for the patient.
