Kangaroo™ Feeding Tube with IRIS Technology

Tube placement is a common blinded procedure that is done at bedside, yet one misplacement into the respiratory tract can lead to delayed nutrition delivery and increased hospital cost.

Did you know:

  • Average bedside placement failure rate is: 12%1
  • 2-4% of feeding tubes misplaced into the respiratory tract with serious injury.2

Introducing: Kangaroo™ Feeding Tube with IRIS Technology 

We put a camera inside a small-bore feeding tube, so placers can feel confident about dropping feeding tubes at the bedside. Designed to reduce delays in feeding, Kangaroo™ IRIS takes a common, blinded procedure in a new and innovative direction.
