Actuated Medical receives clearance for new productThe U.S. Food and Drug Administration recently provided clearance for a system that clears patient feeding and decompression tubes.

Actuated Medical, which manufactures the feeding and decompression tubes, announced that the FDA decided the company provided the substantial equivalence of its TubeClear system associated with Nasogastric feeding and decompression tubes.

"Clogging is a significant problem occurring in approximately 25 percent of feeding and decompression tubes," said Maureen Mulvihill, president of Actuated Medical. "Our TubeClear system has proven to be both fast and consistently effective. In fact, our studies show it to be at least seven times faster than current approaches."

The new product uses the manufacturing company's mechanical motion technology to eliminate congestion in Nasogastric feeding and decompression tubes, which prevents clogging from becoming a problem in feeding, medication delivery and clinicians maintaining their focus on improving patient care.

The FDA also recently issued a warning for fake medical equipment, which could affect the medical supply chain around the world.
