Gastric Tube Guide
Insertion aid for the oral placement of gastric tubes

In order to avoid nasal injuries, the majority of gastric tubes that are not required postoperatively will generally be placed orally. For example, the gastric tube is inserted through the mouth after endotracheal intubation in patients who require, a laparotomy or laparoscopy intervention without opening the intestine or stomach.
The introduction of a gastric tube is often more difficult and time-consuming than other anesthetic procedures (intubation, IV access, etc.).
The Gastric Tube Guide is the perfect tool for quick oral placement of gastric tubes. It is effective without complications.
