Simplified enteral feeding with greater patient comfort

Cook : 03 October, 2013  (New Product)
Adjustable anchoring enables doctors to create greater comfort for patients fitted with feeding tubes
Simplified enteral feeding with greater patient comfort


Cook Medical has developed a new product line that is designed to be comfortable for patients and to simplify enteral feeding procedures for physicians. Enteral feeding, or tube feeding, is needed when patients can't get enough nutrition. The Entuit enteral feeding products were made to be intuitive for patients to use. With this launch, Cook Medical can now provide a full line of products for gastrostomy feeding.



The Entuit Thrive Balloon Gastrostomy Feeding Tube has an in-line shaft that may reduce the need to over dilate when physicians place and replace feeding tubes. The Entuit Secure Suture Anchor Sets were designed with two options, a standard suture anchor and an adjustable-tension suture anchor. The standard suture anchor can be quickly tightened to secure the stomach wall to the abdomen. The adjustable-tension suture anchor includes a locking mechanism that enables the physician to change the tension until the amount of tension is comfortable for the patient. The Entuit Start Initial Placement Set includes all of the components that are necessary to start a gastrostomy procedure. The Entuit Stoma Measuring Device, which can be ordered separately, helps the physician measure the length of a stoma.



“The Entuit product line was developed to better serve patients who are living with feeding tubes,” said Dan Sirota, vice president and global leader of Cook Medical’s Interventional Radiology and Critical Care divisions. “For patients and care providers, feeding tubes are a large part of everyday life. By designing a line of products that are simple for physicians and comfortable for patients, hopefully we've made managing tube feeds just a bit easier.”



With this product launch, Cook Medical can now provide a full line of products for gastrostomy feeding. Entuit enteral feeding products will be available for sale in Canada on November 1, 2013.
