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.

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.
