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:
Select the right DeClogger (they're color coded so even that should be simple).
Insert the DeClogger to reach the blockage and slowly rotate clockwise.
Take the DeClogger out.
Discard the DeClogger after use (intended for single patient use only).
If you have any of the millions of patients that use enternal feeding tubes, you and your patients will appreciate the benefits of using Bionix Tube DeCloggers. Here are the highlights:
For your patients
Clear tubes - No delay in getting your patient's the nutrition or meds they need to recover.
Stay out of the ER - With clear tubes you can prevent trips to the emergency room for tube replacements.
Safer and flexible - DeCloggers bend and conform to the shape of the tube, greatly reducing the risk of puncture.
Prevent clogs from forming - Many long term care providers find that routine use of DeCloggers, a form of preventative maintenance, keeps clogs from forming in the first place.
Easy to use - The DeCloggers are fool proof with features like the Stop Disc to prevent over-insertion and different lengths to prevent them from going into the patient's gastrointestinal tract.
Multiple sizes - Like the Safe Ear Curettes, the DeCloggers are made in different shapes and sizes depending on the job at hand (are you sensing a pattern here?). DeCloggers come in sizes to correctly fit all Gastrostomy, Jejunostomy or PEG type tubes.
Quick - Clearing tubes is a 2 minute job with DeCloggers. And remember, if used regularly clogs may be prevented from forming in the first place.
