IMAGINE MORE TIME FOR YOUR NURSES TO DELIVER PATIENT-CENTERED CARE

 

…while reducing overall burden and complications

 

CORTRAK* empowers nursing staff to spend less time on lengthy tube placement cycles, and more time on patient-centered care.

A recent intensive care unit study reported that CORTRAK* confirmed placement of NG tubes took a mean of 9.6 minutes while patients who required an X-ray took 122 minutes – equivalent to a 92% reduction!

Reduce x-rays. Increase safety.
Improve outcomes.

The CORTRAK* electromagnetic guidance system provides an innovative way for clinicians to confidently place tubes in an optimal feeding position, quickly confirm location, and reduce the time to nutrition delivery–right at bedside.

Did you know that on average, the blind feeding tube placement process can take up to 11 steps? There are just 3 steps in the CORTRAK* cycle.

fewer steps = MORE time for care

    Traditional Cycle
  1. Receive order for enteral feeding
  2. Feeding tube placement procedure
  3. Order X-ray
  4. X-ray taken to confirm placement
  5. Wait for radiology report
  6. Verify placement location
    CORTRAK* Cycle
  1. Receive order enteral feeding
  2. Place tube with CORTRAK*
  3. Begin feeding

Note: This process can repeat up to 2.5 times

Learn how CORTRAK* can help you improve patient care, reduce costs, increase safety and MORE.
