Percutaneous Ultrasound Gastrostemy Training

Using The PUMA-G System Designed By Coaptech

We have partnered with Coaptech to offer a bi-monthly training course on the Percutaneous Ultrasound Gastrostemy using their PUMA-G (Point-of-care Ultrasound Magnet Aligned) system. You can find our currently scheduled training courses below this list of benefits of the PUMA-G system. For more info you can visit www.coaptech.com.

Safety

No endoscope; no ionizing radiation. The PUMA-G System eliminates risks from PEG blind sticks (organ damage); endoscope reprocessing (infections); or fluoroscopy (cancer) by enabling ultrasound visualization of tissue from stomach wall to surface.

Performance

The FDA-cleared PUMA-G System has been validated with over 250 safe and successful uses in adult patients (including COVID+ patients), confirming prior performance aspects shown in live canine and cadaver data that demonstrate the method's effectiveness and reliability.

Cost-Effectiveness

Compared to the total cost of PEG procedures, the PUMA-G System delivers a >30-50% reduction in direct costs, major savings from shorter lengths of stay, and revenue enhancement through optimization of suite productivity.

Speed

Scheduling logjams for an operating suite can delay patient care and increase costs. Gastrostomy procedures done at the bedside leverage the skills of physicians at the point of care and results in more efficient patient care.

Studies For Efficacy And Safety During The COVID-19 Pandemic

A study was composed during the fourth quarter of 2020, to explore the additive safety measure that the use of the PUG system allows health providers. To access the abstract and study, click the link below.
