Abstract

See full text

A securing pocket for managing the loose portion of a medical tube, such as a Nasogastric/Nasojejunal tube, while an implanted portion of the medical tube remains attached to the patient. The loose portion of the medical tube has a coiled section disposed within a receptacle formed between flexible front and rear panels. An integral flap overlaps the front panel to selectively close the receptacle and may be secured with a snap connector. Jam cleats are located along left and right edges adjacent a top edge of the receptacle. Each jam cleat forms a breach in the receptacle through which a tethered section of the loose medical tube extends. The jam cleats are configured to apply a progressive wedge force on the tethered section of the loose medical tube in response to tension along the tube. The jam cleat has flexible sides formed in a V-shape.
