Improvements and Innovations

PRE-ATTACHED CLIP

Now slidable and pre-attached to umbilical tape for improved handling

STYLET DESIGN

Improved handle design prevents stylet misplacement and offers better grip for removal

RETRIEVAL PROBE DESIGN

Depth indicator alignment markings on probe for easier placement

It is critical to maintain nasal tube securement in the neonatal and pediatric populations to ensure essential nutrition delivery to their growing bodies and avoid unnecessary tube replacements. Conventional methods of tube securement using tape often lead to premature pullouts, dislodgement, and skin breakdown. It is recommended to place the AMT Bridle™ prior to any nasal tubes.

Traditional Tape Method (seen above)

The AMT Micro Bridle may decrease:

  • Risk of aspiration
  • Exposure to x-ray for repeat tube placements
  • Use of restraints
  • Need for parenteral nutrition
  • Transition to more invasive PEG procedure
  • Risk of tape/latex allergy
  • Delicate skin breakdown

The AMT Micro Bridle is a safety device:

  • Specifically designed for, and cleared by the FDA for pediatric use
  • Manufactured by AMT, the inventors of the AMT Bridle™ technology with a long-standing history and knowledge of the technology
  • Designed by a physician
  • Retained by the strong vomer bone, which begins formation at 8 weeks’ gestation, is fully formed as a bone by 18.5 weeks’ gestation and is ossified at birth

The AMT Micro Bridle is the ONLY Bridle system:

  • Cleared by the FDA for pediatric use
  • Cleared for use with any brand of tube
  • Available in sizes to secure nasal tubes as small as 5F

The AMT Micro Bridle was designed specifically for pediatric comfort:

  • Compared to the Standard AMT Bridle™
    • 10% smaller probe diameter
    • 20% shorter probe length
    • 40% smaller clip
  • Strength and retention force were specifically designed to avoid injury in delicate pediatric tissue and bone, even in the event of pulling. Every component of the AMT Bridle™ will release or break well below the amount of force needed to injure a pediatric vomer bone
    • Pulling may cause sensation of pressure, serving as negative reinforcement
    • The AMT Bridle™ and nasal tube will break at a much lower force that it would take to effect the vomer bone

Placed in Less Than a Minute

The AMT Bridle is easily placed by passing magnets within the nasopharynx, which allows umbilical tape to be looped around the vomer bone, and then anchored to the tube with a clip.

  • Placed in less than a minute
  • No patient sedation required
  • French size-specific clips to fit a variety of nasal tubes
  • Secured without messy adhesive tape or sutures
