For more than thirty years, the Kangaroo™ brand has led the industry offering a safe, innovative and comprehensive nutritional delivery product portfolio. Now, Cardinal Health is proud to offer the first disposable feeding tube with an integrated real-time imaging system to visually aid in the placement of small bore feeding tubes.
The Kangaroo™ Feeding Tube with IRIS Technology features a camera integrated with a small bore feeding tube to allow clinicians to identify anatomical markers during the placement of the tube. This advancement in technology takes a common, blinded procedure in a new and innovative direction, providing clinicians with a visual aid during placement.
When the Kangaroo™ Feeding Tube with IRIS Technology is placed into a patient, the console will display real-time video as it is advanced through the patient’s body. This can help clinicians determine the correct path for feeding tube placement and help prevent feeding tube misplacement.
