These feeding tubes sit near the user’s skin, which makes it inconspicuous and easy to conceal. It comes with an inflatable internal retention balloon that is inflated to hold the complete gastrostomy feeding tube in place. The retention balloon has a luer-lock connector that helps establish a secure connection with syringes whenever required. It also comes with a radiopaque stripe that assists in the visual inspection of the tube in X-Rays. The tube is made of high-quality medical-grade silicone that makes it incredibly flexible and drapable.
The MIC-KEY Feeding Tubes have a secure-lok external retention ring that protects the tube from entering into the stomach. To facilitate the administration of nutrition or medication, these feeding tubes come with graduated extension sets that connect to the tube and to the feeding set or the formula pump. The extension sets have dual ports, for medication and nutrition respectively, with a proximal anti-reflux valve to make sure that the contents don’t leak out from the tube at any instance.
The Feeding Tubes are indicated to administer patients who require nutrition and medication directly to the stomach or are unable to tolerate oral feeding. It is also beneficial to be used when gastric decompression directly from the stomach is required. The tube is latex-free and suitable for people with latex allergies. It is also sterilized and recommended for a single use only. The parts for the tubes are also available individually, in case a replacement is required.
