Feeding bags are designed to be used with enteral feeding pumps. Some of them are specific to certain feeding pumps, while others may be compatible with a few different pumps. The pump bags set are for those who receive their enteral nutrition through continuous feeding or intermittent feeding. It is also used for flushing the tube. Enteral feeding gravity sets can be used when a patient has adequate gastric motility to tolerate a bolus feed or an absence of a feeding pump. We at Health Products For You carry a whole line of high-quality feed bags designed to ensure patient safety and enteral feeding efficiency.
The tube feeding bags come with different features that enhance the safety and accuracy of the feeding system. They are:
In intermittent feeding method, the formula is run through the pump for a specified time. The process after a break of 1 to 3 hours is repeated. During that gap, you can either clean the bag with sterile water and leave the bag on the pump until the next feeding or you can put the feeding bag in a Ziplock pouch and store it in the fridge until next use. Refrigerating the feeding bag is the safest method compared to rinsing it with sterile water, as cooling the bag requires less manipulation than cleaning. Normally a new bag is used every 24 hours. But more recent studies show that it is appropriate to change the feeding bag every 72 hours rather than 24 hours. It will decrease the supply cost and nursing time for the patients who need to be on an enteral feeding system for a longer period. After filling the bag with formula, you should prime the bag to remove the air from the tube. The prime button is on the pump.
