In clinical rehabilitation treatment, gastric tube is a very common medical consumable. It is usually used to ensure the daily nutrition of patients and provide patients with tube feeding diet.

According to the material, it can be divided into PVC (polyvinyl chloride), silicone, TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane elastomer rubber) and so on.

Single-lumen gastric tube, as the name suggests, has only one lumen, and its connectors can be divided into bucket-type connectors or Y-type connectors according to different models. Its advantage is that one end with a larger diameter matches the infusion joint of the nutrient solution of the commonly used nasal feeding tube, and it is easy to operate in clinic.

Double-lumen gastric tube is a kind of gastric tube commonly used in clinical practice. There are two lumens inside it with bifurcated tube connectors, The composition includes a main body, a main lumen, an auxiliary lumen, a tube joint and a plug provided with the tube head.
