The Insides Driver is unable to handle thick viscosities of chyme. Please refer to The Insides® System Instructions for Use and Patient Management sections in the training hub.

As a general guide, an output over 1 Litre/24 hr should be thin enough to reinfuse. If the patient’s chyme is consistently too thick, measures will need to be taken to thin the chyme. This may include:  

  • Reducing anti-motility medication
  • Drinking one to two extra glasses of water
  • Drinking one to two cups of coffee
