Enteral Feeding Tube DeClogger
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!
