Tube/Stylet Tip Locators, Nasoenteral

Definition : Devices designed to be used in combination with a nasoenteral tube/stylet to enable visualization/detection of the tube tip location, thereby guiding the positioning/placement of the tube. These locators typically work by detecting a type of energy (e.g., a low-level, high-frequency electromagnetic field or near infrared light) that is emitted via the tip of a specially designed nasoenteral tube stylet. These devices are typically hand-held, reusable, and battery-powered. Some locators may consist of several components, such as a detector/sensor unit and a stand-alone screen that allows visualization of the tube tip/stylet.
