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.
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.
