Kendall Argyle Indwell Feeding Tube is manufactured under the name Argyle Indwell as a Kendall product of Covidien to serve as a gastrostomy tube or G tube. This Feeding Tube is constructed with polyurethane. It's construction allows for thermo sensitivity to the patient and quickly warms to body temperature. At body temperature, the feeding tube softens to provide greater patient comfort and adaptation to placement of the tube. At room temperature, the Argyle Indwell Feeding Tube is stiff to allow ease of placement. Stronger than PVC or silicone, the polyurethane construction allows for a much thinner wall, providing a larger inner diameter for increase flow rates. The increased diameter also reduces clogging when properly maintained. Vitality Medical also carries the Argyle Feed Tube with 2 Staggered Eyes and Argyle Connecting Tubes.
