Applied Medical Technology Silicone Gastrostomy Tube

This product is on backorder and will be available to purchase once it is back in stock.

Applied Medical Technology Gastrostomy Tube allows foods, fluids, and medications to be delivered directly into the stomach, bypassing the mouth and esophagus. A traditional length G-tube or high profile tube extends off the abdomen about 7-10cm compared to a low-profile G-tube, which is flush against the skin.

Features of Applied Medical Technology Silicone Gastrostomy Tube

  • Inflated balloon extends beyond distal catheter tip to reduce erosion and risk of gastric ulceration
  • Flexible silicone material is gentle, provides increased comfort, and minimizes skin irritation
  • Balloon grows horizontally covering more surface area, creating a better gastric seal
  • Adjustable fill volume ensures individualized proper fit
  • Enteral Balloon G-Tube has round external bolster designed with feet, minimizes surface contact with skin, allowing tissue to breathe

Benefits of AMT Balloon Gastrostomy Tube

  • An Adjustable Balloon: Balloon fill volume can be easily adjusted for a custom-fit, as recommended by your healthcare provider. A better fit can improve patient comfort and reduce leaks.
  • A Durable Balloon: Made from the highest grade medical silicone, which can result in a balloon with longer life.
  • A Better Balloon: Unique "apple" shaped balloon is designed to cover more surface area and minimize leaks at the gastrostomy site. When filled, the AMT balloon grows horizontally to provide a larger seal surface and may help to reduce granulation tissue.

What to buy AMT Balloon G-Tube

Why Gastrostomy Tube is inserted?

Feeding tube insertion is percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG), G-tube insertion, and esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD). The insertion of a feeding tube is done when the patient is unable to eat on their own due to the following reasons -

  • Abnormality of the mouth or esophagus- the tube that connects the throat to the stomach.
  • Difficulty swallowing or keeping food down.
  • Insufficiency of nutritions taken via mouth.

Conditions that may cause a person to have trouble eating include:

How to care for a Applied Medical Technology Feeding G-tube?

  • Clean it well: Rinse the tube with warm water before and after every feeding. Do it even when you take medicines. Moreover, clean the ends of the tube almost every day with an antiseptic wipe. You can also use a syringe for thorough cleansing.
  • Wash your hands: Make sure you wash your hands before touching the tube.
  • Secure the tube: Use medical tape to attach it to your body in such a way that the end faces upwards. It is recommended to prefer medical tapes over the regular ones; these shall not irritate the skin. Additionally, change the position of the tape after every few days.
  • Clamp the tube: When not in use, clamp the tube. Place the clamp closer to your body so that food and liquids don't spill down. 
  • Clean the area around: Keep the skin around the tube dry and clean at all times to avoid any chances of infection.
  • Sleeping position: Avoid sleeping on your stomach. Try sleeping on your back or the sides. These positions are much comfortable.
