NGPOD®: The Nasogastric (NG) Tube Placement Confirmation Device.
A Revolution in NG Tube Placement Safety.
NHSSC Code: FWM4155
The NGPOD®-01 should be used with the NGPOD® Sensor-01. When used together it will provide the clinician with a simple YES/NO result for indicating placement of a Nasogastric (NG) tube.
As a result, the NGPOD® system removes the need to aspirate gastric contents from the patient, reduces clinical interpretation risk by providing a safe bedside test which gives the user an unambiguous yes or no result. It also reduces the need for unnecessary X-rays to confirm placement and offers patient safety, clinician and cost-efficiency benefits.
The NGPod is available to purchase now - contact our sales team now to learn more, or order directly through NHS Supply Chain.
Using a bespoke fibre-optic, we have developed a patented Fibre-Optic Sensor which we manufacture in the UK.
When used with the NGPOD®-01, the fibre-optic transmits light from the Pod, detecting a response from the environment at the tip of the sensor (which sits inside the distal end of the nasogastric tube once inserted).
The device provides a result in c.22 seconds.
The sensor is single use and must be disposed after each patient use.
We are committed to maintaining a Quality Management System, achieving ISO:13485 (2016) accreditation.
