MG8-40 Tube Feeding Polyurethane 8 FR 40 cm. 1 Case of 50
The SuperLock™ feeding tubes are available in polyurethane and silicone materials.The MG8/40 are made from polyurethane. These feeding tubes have a male Luer type connector which fits the female oral/enteral syringes and the female Luer type ends of extensions sets. All SuperLock™ Feeding tubes are clearly marked, have a non IV compatible male Luer type end, and a radio-opaque stripe to confirm position with X-ray.
The International Standards Organization,ISO CD 80369-3 for enteral feeding equipment has chosen a locking system with female ended syringes such as the SuperLock™ safety system. The committee found the female hubs of oral dose type feeding tubes unsafe and rejected them because they allow IV access when using a Luer slip IV syringe and other tapered tip adapters used throughout the medical community.
