NGTF is a feeding appliances kit with a friendly feeding process, including a quick-release outer nasogastric tube, a feeding rack, and a fluid extractor. The aluminum foil packaging of NGTF can be quickly installed on the feeding rack for feeding, to reduce the burden of raising hands and both hands manipulation when feeding by families and medical personnel; and the design that can be self-assembled and self-fed can makes it easy for patients to carry. The design that NGTF can be fixed to the inner tube of the nasal cavity and the detachable outer nasogastric tube can ameliorate the exposure and easy sliding of the existing nasogastric tube, improve the acceptance and self-confidence of patients, and reduce the nasal pressure injury and germ invasion. NGTF can be used with the fluid extractor to evaluate the gastric condition of premature infants and patients who cannot take care of themselves before feeding.
