The Mic-Key Gastrostomy Kit comes with a low-profile feeding tube that sits very close to the skin and is hence easy-to-conceal. It has a tapered distal tip that helps facilitate an easy and smooth insertion of the catheter. It features a unique inflatable internal retention balloon with a luer-lok port that needs to be inflated to hold the complete MIC-KEY Gastrostomy Feeding Tube in place. The luer-lok port on the balloon assists in establishing a secure connection with the syringes.
The Mic-Key Feeding Tube Kit also comes with a ventilated Secur-lok external retention ring that restricts the feeding tube from completely migrating into the stomach and also keeps the stoma healthy and free of moisture.
The feeding kit is an excellent alternative for enteral feeding patients who prefer having an active life. It is indicated to be used by patients who are intolerant to oral-feeding and thus require medication or nutrients to be directly fed to the stomach. It is also beneficial to carry out gastric decompression directly from the stomach whenever required.
The gastrostomy kit is available in several color coded balloon ports that facilitate easy and quick identification of the catheter french size. It comes with a radiopaque stripe that allows easy visual inspection of the catheter using X-Rays. The feeding tubes also have proximal anti-reflux valves that prevent the backflow of the fluid. The tube is suitable to be used for pediatrics and adults. It is a sterilized latex free kit that is meant for a single-use only.
