TubieGuard – Accessory for Tube Feeding
We would like to introduce an accessory for tube feeding that will make enteral feeding for caregivers and patients a better experience. Tube Feeding is an effective method of delivering nutrition directly into the stomach when the patient is unable to eat and drink normally. Liquid enteral nutrition is carefully calculated for every meal, and maintaining feeding tube integrity is important. Because feeding solutions are expensive and the patient relies entirely on this delivery system, leaks and accidental separation of tubing should be avoided.
What are some of the challenges faced by patients who rely on enteral tube feeding for their nutrition? Caregivers for infants, children, and adults of all ages that are dependent upon feeding tubes agree that accidental separation of feeding tube connectors is a real problem. There was a need for a more secure method of maintaining the integrity of enteral tube connections, so we invented a tube feeding accessory that takes the worry out of tube feeding.
With The TubieGuard feeding tube accessories, instances of accidental feeding tube separation are greatly diminished. The TubieGuard is a plastic case that snaps closed around feeding tube connectors. A secured connection is leakproof, the patient receives the prescribed feeding solution, and there is a reduced risk of tampering. The TubieGuard will accommodate all brands and styles of enteral tube feeding connectors and is available in three colors.
Tube feeding is done in the home, in hospitals, in nursing facilities and other institutions. A patient’s treatment experience will be enhanced significantly using The TubieGuard in General Hospitals, Skilled Nursing Care Facilities, and Rehabilitation Centers. Care providers and administrators may email or call (781) 264-0229 for institutional pricing and ordering. A TubieGuard product specialist will contact you immediately.
