AN22 Pre-weighted tube
No mercury required Pre-Weighted
Balloon type Adult Radiopaque Sterile
8ft / 2.44m 16 Fr.
For hyperactive bowel & intraoperative passage
Andersen® Intestinal Tube,
Miller-Abbott Type
The Andersen® Intestinal Tube,
Miller-Abbott Type is a bilumenal
intestinal tube with an inflatable latex
balloon tip designed for those situations
where the aspiration of liquid and air
from the gastrointestinal tract is of
therapeutic importance. The AN22 can be
used for the temporary management of
early mechanical obstruction in the small
and large intestines. This is a straight
drainage tube, not a sump tube.
The 24 aspirating ports reduce clogging of
the aspirating tube by screening out
particulate matter.
The externally inflatable balloon is
invaginated over the weighted tip of the tube
making transnasal and transpyloric passage
Pre-weighted (with tungsten weights
encapsulated at the tip) to aid passage
through the pylorus. When duodenal
intubation has been confirmed, the balloon
is inflated with air providing an adequate
bolus for the bowel to move the tube along.
Pass the AN-22 pre-weighted long
tube transnasally to the level of the
stomach. The tungsten weighted tip
provides the mass to easily aim the
tube tip at the polyorus. Pass it
through the polyrus under x-ray
image intensification control. When
duodenal intubation has been
confirmed, the balloon is inflated
with air injected down the small tube
to provide a bolus to help move the
tube through the intestines.
Markings at 65, 75, 100, 125, 150, 175,
and 200 cm from the distal tip aid in the
positioning of the tube during passage.
To decompress the small intestine, the
AN22 should be used on straight gravity
drainage or with electric aspirators intended
for gastrointestinal suction. The aspirating
tube requires irrigation with normal saline
The Andersen® Intestinal Tube,
Miller-Abbott Type is packed 10 per box.
Each tube is 8ft. / 2.44m., sterile, with
detailed instructions for use.
