The Dale® NasoGastric Tube Holder from Dale Medical Products, Inc., is designed for ease of use and patient comfort, and it can remain in place for up to 3 days.

This woven fabric nose pad securely holds nasogastric feeding and aspiration tubes in place and prevents nasal irritation, erosion, and necrosis. A comfortable alternative to taping, the tube holder has dual tabs for holding two tubes at once.

The Dale NasoGastric Tube Holder is “one size fits all” and latex-free. Easy to apply, the nose pad stretches and conforms for a custom fit that won’t slide off the nose. It uses a skin-friendly adhesive, and the tips on each tab are nonadherent for removal without scissors. The tube holders come individually unit packaged in boxes of 50. Free samples are available upon request.
