The Bard Peg Brush is a flexible and disposable cleaning brush designed to clean gastrostomy feeding tubes. It comes with a feather mounted brush and a tip that is soft and thus protects the mucosal membrane from getting injured or experiencing trauma. The end of the brush is equipped with a female luer lock hub adapter that is used to inject the cleaning solution into the brush.
The Bard Brush is designed to aid users to carry out a quick and simple cleaning of gastrostomy feeding tubes. The nylon made shaft of the brush makes it incredibly flexible and optimizes the push-ability to ensure a proper and deep insertion to carry out the cleaning. The shaft is marked with bold markings that allow users to visually monitor the maximum and minimum insertion depth for the brush as per the tube size. These brushes are designed to clean feeding tubes of sizes eighteen french and above.
It is recommended to clean feeding tubes on a daily or weekly basis to maintain a clean and hygienic environment. It is important to note that the brush should not be used in case the feeding tubes are clogged or are of a size less than eighteen french. The Bard Peg Cleaning Brush is a non-sterile and disposable brush and is recommended to be used for a single use only.
