NGPod Global is a UK-based medical device manufacturer dedicated to providing innovative solutions to the patient safety issues related to nasogastric tube (NGT) placement. The existing methods of NGT placement confirmation have quite a few limitations, such as high failure rates while obtaining samples for pH testing or X-ray misinterpretation.
Introducing the NGPOD®:
A new pH test to determine nasogastric tube placement
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.
