Great Product

Pros:
Safe. Sturdy.
Best Uses:
Feeding for Head injury.

My supplier could only get me a brand that was white and we couldn't see through the tube. I like these because they are sturdy, you can see what's going down and if his meds get stuck, it's easy to get them out. This is a great product!

It was a great tube as far as easy insertion, but we had a very hard time keeping the syringe tip in. The tube contains internal ridges that pushed the syringe tip out.

Answer:
Yes! Look for something called the AMT Clamp. It is designed to hold the feed set on the tube. This year, the tube connection is changing to one that twists together.

Question:
Can a long feeding tube be replaced by a button after the stoma is healed? The original tube was tacked to the flat piece at the stomach wall but was removed today in ER but replaced with another of the same long tube but only held in place with the balloon.

Answer:
Before inserting the feeding tube, apply a small amount of KY jel (it usually comes with the tube) on the tube and slide bumper back & forth. You are able to get a good purchase on the tube before it is inserted. This method has been working for me for years now.

Answer:
This always works for me. Before inserting the G-tube rub a small amount of the KY jel on the tube and then pull the bumper back & forth. Before it is inserted you are able to get a real good hold on the tube and pull the bumper loose.

Answer:
I had the same problem. It's easier to move before you put it in the patient because it required some force. Once it's in you can't pull like that. I just kept tugging & eventually it gave way. Maybe a little oil or soap would help loosen it. But better do it before inserting. Once in you'll never be able to move it.

Answer:
I mix all medicines & supplements in my husbands food that has been run through the Ninja so it's babyfood consistency. I follow with an entire cup of water to flush the tube. I have never had it discolor or turn hard. He has been pegged since May or 2012. This is his 3rd G tube. The first was not a permanent silicone one. That lasted 3 months before the balloon failed & this one has been in almost 9 months. If you keep it clean, thoroughly flush after each use, it will last until the balloon fails per 3 different Gastro Doctors. If it ever clogs, use a tiny bit of coca cola, works just like drain-o in your sink. It may take a time or two, but if you massage the tube with your fingers at the clog, attach a G tube syringe to the end, push air in, then retract, after a few tries, fixed!

Answer:
The previous answer was very good. I mix the medications (sometimes they just need grinding up and mixed with the supplement, but the capsules need to be dissolved in warm water. I usually do this the night before.) The fish oil I dissolved, tried putting it through the tube, and the tube smelled awful of fish oil. I stopped the fish oil fast. But the previous answer about mixing the dissolved capsule in with the supplement might work. But the way, a smelly tube can be remedied with while distilled vinegar. I let it soak for 1/2 hour, then flush with water. There's always a solution.

Answer:
It is generally recommended it be changes approximately every three months. It is rare for one to continue to function properly longer than six months. Changing it every three months makes it less likely the change will have to occur on an emergency basis.

Answer:
My doctor's advise is, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." That's been good for me. My tube (balloon variety) lasted 9 months. When the balloon gave out, I had a couple of tubes ready, and I'd watched a video on line about changing it. No problems. The first time is a bit nerve racking, but it's a simple thing to do, and definitely not rocket science.

Answer:
Yes it is, this one is very durable. You just have to remember, they are man made. You can get one that will last years if properly cared for, or a fluke that lasts only a few months due to a faulty balloon. I always keep one in the vehicle, & one in the house with a packet of lube, and a 10cc syringe of saline to inflate the balloon after insertion.
