Title: NASOGASTRIC TUBE SECUREMENT SYSTEMS AND METHODS OF USING SAME
Abstract:
A nasogastric tube securement system. The system can include a base layer and a coupling layer. The base layer can be configured to be adhered to a nose, having a first major surface comprising a skin-contact adhesive and a footprint area of A. The coupling layer can include a first end comprising coupling means configured to be repositionably coupled to the second major surface of the base layer; a second end configured to secure a nasogastric tube, and a middle section connecting the first end and the second end. The first end of the coupling layer can have a footprint area of at least 0.3A. The middle section can be elongated along a longitudinal direction, and the first end and the second end can each be wider than the middle section in a lateral direction oriented substantially perpendicularly with respect to the longitudinal direction.
