Enteral Feeding Tube DeCloggers®

Enteral Feeding Tube DeCloggers®

Quickly and effectively clears a clogged feeding tube in less than two minutes!

It's been said that necessity is the mother of invention.  And in the case of the resident that had the idea behind the Bionix Feeding Tube DeClogger, getting some sleep was the necessity.

The resident was working a long shift (is there ever such a thing as a short shift for residents?) and had to be awakened three times to clear the enteral feeding tube of a patient.

"There's got to be a better way to do this," he thought as he unsuccessfully tried cola, cranberry juice and meat tenderizer to no avail.

But what did work was a basic "screw-and-thread" design combined with a long flexible plastic probe. He, the resident, tried his new invention and it worked!


How to Use DeCloggers

There are boatloads of products that you look at and marvel that no one has invented them before.

Bionix Tube DeCloggers are one of those products.

Using the DeCloggers and providing relief and care to your patients is so simple that they had to think about how to make the How to Use them instructions longer, but they couldn't. Here's what you do:

  1. Select the right DeClogger (they're color coded so even that should be simple).
  2. Insert the DeClogger to reach the blockage and slowly rotate clockwise.
  3. Take the DeClogger out.
  4. Discard the DeClogger after use (intended for single patient use only).
