Safer Enteral Tube Feeding
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.
Enteral tube feeding delivers a patient’s daily nutrition when he is unable to eat or drink safely, and unable to attain adequate oral nutrition. Feeding solutions are expensive. Accidental separation of enteral feeding tube connectors wastes formula and makes it impossible to know what was successfully delivered to the patient. TubieGuard allows for safer enteral tube feeding. The TubieGuard is a case that protects feeding tubes where the connectors may be vulnerable to tampering, leaking, or separation. 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.
