What to buy with Kimberly-Clark Gastrostomy Feeding Tube?

When is Mic Bolus Gastrostomy Feeding Tube used?

MIC Gastrostomy / Bolus Feeding Tube is used to Bolus Feed a person. Bolus feeding is a feeding method wherein a syringe is used to deliver formula via a feeding tube. It is often known as a syringe or gravity feeding, as holding up the needle lets the formula flow down using gravity. Many people take a bolus or meal of formula every three hours since it allows them to have more freedom in between feedings. One feeding session usually takes up to 20 minutes.

How to use Avanos Gastrostomy Feeding Tube?

To bolus feed a patient, you will require:

  • A 60-milliliter (mL) catheter tip or a syringe
  • A cup of room-temperature water
  • Feeding formula

How to Bolus/Syringe Feed?

  • Thoroughly wash your hands.
  • In case of a low-profile feeding tube, prime the extension tubing so that any air present is removed before the feeding tube is attached. Doing so will help minimize the discomfort.
  • Clamp the extension set.
  • Remove the plunger from the syringe.
  • Attach the syringe to the extension tubing.
  • Pour approximately 15 mL of feeding formula into the syringe.
  • Unclamp the extension set. This will help the formula flow just to the end of the tubing.
  • Now clamp the extension set.
  • Attach the extension to the feeding tube.
  • In case of a regular gastrostomy tube, flush the tube with normal water.
  • Remove the plunger from the syringe.
  • Attach the syringe to your feeding tube.
  • Add 10-15 mL of water into the syringe and let it flow through the tube.
  • Clean the formula container from the outside with a clean towel. Next, you would want to open the container.
  • Hold the syringe and tube with one of the hands.
  • With lento ease pour formula into the syringe with the other hand. Let it flow into the stomach. Subsequently, it should take approximately 15 minutes for 8 ounces of formula to be delivered.
  • The feeding pace depends largely on the tolerance of the patient.
  • The formula can be made to flow quicker by raising the syringe higher than the stomach or by using the plunger to push the formula through or,
  • The formula can be made to flow slower by lowering the syringe below the stomach or by reducing the amount of the formula in one go.
  • Once done flush the feeding tube with water [amount as recommended].
  • Next, close the feeding port to disconnect the extension tubing.
  • Properly wash hands.
  • Air-dry all the equipment and feeding supplies.
  • Refrigerate the leftover formula if any and use it within 24 hours.

Bolus Feeding Tips

  • Always wash hands prior to handling the feeding tube, supplies, and the skin to avoid skin infection.
  • Patient should have better tolerance if you sit up during the feedings and for at least 30 minutes afterward.
  • Cold formula might upset your stomach, so take it out of the fridge a few minutes before feeding.
  • Slow down the formula if the patient starts to feel nauseous or too full during the feeding.
  • Slower it down a bit more if the patient experiences stomach upset or loses bowel movements immediately after feeding.
  • Tap water is safe to use for most people. Ask the doctor if the patient needs to use purified water.
