Tubing, Synthetic Polymer
Definition : Tubing made of synthetic polymers such as nylon, polyurethane, and silicone. Polymer tubing is typically a hollow cylinder designed for the transfer of fluids, either liquids or gases. These devices may be rigid, semirigid, or flexible; they are typically made with different structures (e.g., braided, reinforced) according to the intended use. Synthetic polymer tubing is usually available in standardized lengths and in a variety of diameters and wall thicknesses (i.e., gauges) that permit the use of segments of different sizes appropriate for a given application in the healthcare facility.
