Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Q1:What is the purpose of a nasointestinal tube?

A1:A nasointestinal tube is primarily used for enteral feeding, delivering nutrition directly into the small intestine. This is particularly beneficial for patients who cannot ingest food orally or have certain conditions affecting the stomach, like gastric reflux or delayed gastric emptying. The tube bypasses the stomach, ensuring that nutrition is delivered where it can be best absorbed.

Q2:What is the difference between a nasoenteric tube and a nasogastric tube?

A2:The key difference lies in their placement. A nasogastric tube is inserted through the nose into the stomach, while a nasoenteric tube goes further into the small intestine, typically the duodenum or jejunum. This distinction is important as it affects the method and type of nutrition delivered, depending on the patient's medical condition and digestive capabilities.

Q3:What are the key features of GCmedica's Nasointestinal Feeding Tubes?

A3:GCmedica's Nasointestinal Feeding Tubes are designed for safe and efficient enteral feeding.

These tubes are made of PU material, are X-Ray visible, and have a weighted tip for accurate placement.

Q4:What are the different types of nasointestinal tubes?

A4:Nasointestinal tubes vary in size, material, and specific design features. Common types include nasojejunal and nasoduodenal tubes, which are named based on their placement in the jejunum or duodenum of the small intestine. They may also vary in terms of diameter (French gauge), length, and whether they are weighted or unweighted, which influences their placement and stability.

A5:Yes, GCmedica's Nasointestinal Feeding Tubes are available in various sizes (Fr6 to Fr12), catering to a wide range of patient sizes and needs. The variety in sizes allows healthcare providers to select the most appropriate tube based on the patient's anatomy and medical requirements.
