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 configured to be adhered to a nose, having a first major surface comprising a skin-contact adhesive and a second major surface opposite the first major surface. 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, and a second end configured to secure a nasogastric tube. The coupling layer can further include a cutaway region extending from a periphery of the coupling layer adjacent the second end into a central portion of the coupling layer, such that the second end comprises legs that are separated by the cutaway region, and such that the first end is free of the cutaway region.
