Argyle? Brand Salem Sump? Antireflux Valve
(Covidien) For use with Salem Sump? tubes, this sterile gastric reflux prevention valve prevents gastric fluids from exiting through the vent lumen and contaminating patients, staff and bedding with body fluids. It also features PAAB (pressure activated air buffer). 10 valves per box.
The anti-reflux valve provides clinicians and patients with the highest quality of NG tube care. When attached and maintained properly, the ARV prevents stomach contents from exiting the vent lumen. This prevents unnecessary patient gown and bedding changes and reduces the risk of exposure to potentially infections materials. This ARV allows the vent lumen to neutralize the vacuum pressure in the stomach when the contents are fully evacuated.
