Abstract: A multi-tiered, multi-station carrel unit includes spaced side walls that define a plurality of compartments divided into work stations by an intermediate deck, each work station having a work-supporting surface and a seat defined therein. A stairwell leads to the upper work stations and the carrel units may be assembled in any desired pattern.
Abstract: A stylet to be used in combination with a feeding tube assembly for administration or aspiration of fluids to a patient comprising a wire with an elongated loop of variable length and width at its distal end. The width of the loop may be adjusted so as to be greater than the diameter of any apertures in feeding tubes thereby preventing the stylet from exiting the tube assembly and minimizing the possibility of injury to a patient during stylet intubation.
Abstract: A feeding assembly for the administration of fluids to a patient comprising a tube having a rigid bolus near its distal end to facilitate the peristaltic movement of the assembly during insertion. The bolus has openings for fluid flow, said openings are oriented to prevent the tip of a stylet from escaping from the tube assembly to minimize the possibility of injury to a patient during stylet intubation.
