MIC-KEY Low-Profile Gastrostomy Feeding Tube Kit Features

  • Low-Profile Design: This means it sits flush against the skin to minimize visibility and discomfort. This design allows for greater mobility and improved quality of life for the patient
  • Silicone Construction: Silicone is soft, flexible, and biocompatible, providing comfort during insertion and reducing the risk of skin irritation or allergic reactions
  • Integrated Bolster: An integrated balloon or bolster helps secure the tube in place within the stomach. This reduces the risk of accidental dislodgement and improves overall stability
  • Tapered Distal Tip: The distal (end) tip of the feeding tube is tapered, which assists in ease of insertion and promotes patient comfort during placement
  • Closed-End Design: It has a closed-end design, meaning it does not have an open port or connector when not in use. This helps maintain cleanliness and reduces the risk of contamination
  • Medication Delivery: The feeding tube allows for the administration of medications directly into the stomach, providing a convenient and efficient method of medication delivery
  • Easy Cleaning and Maintenance: The feeding tube is designed for easy cleaning and maintenance. It can be flushed and cleaned according to healthcare provider instructions, promoting hygiene and preventing blockages or clogs

When to use this gastrostomy tube?

Mic-key 20fr low-profile gastrostomy feeding tube kit is indicated for use in patients who require enteral feeding, are unable to tolerate oral feeding, require gastric decompression and/or medication delivery directly into either the stomach, distal to the stomach, distal duodenum or proximal jejunum (tube types vary from G, J, TJ/ GJ & GE depending on what medical professional has prescribed/placed).
 

Frequently Bought Together


How to use Mic Key G Tube?

  1. Attach - To start, attach the MIC-KEY G Extension Set to the MIC-KEY G feeding port by matching the black lines on the extension set and feeding port. Push the extension set down firmly and “lock” it into place by turning the connector CLOCKWISE until you feel a slight resistance (approximately three-quarters turn).
    Note - Do not turn the connector past the stop point. It is important to keep the extension set “locked” into place during feeding.
Attach MIC-KEY G Extension Set to feeding port
  1. Flush - Next, flush your G Extension Set with water. Use either extension set to flush.
  2. Begin - Now begin enteral feeding.
    • For bolus feeding - Attach a bolus syringe filled with your preferred nutrition
    • For continuous feeding- Attach a feeding set to a feeding pump with your preferred nutrition in the bag

How to remove Extension Set From MIC KEY G Tube?

  • Disconnect the extension set from the MIC KEY G tube port by rotating it COUNTER-CLOCKWISE until the black line on the feeding port lines up with the black line on the extension set
  • Gently detach the extension set and cap the MIC-KEY G Feeding Tube securely with the attached feeding port tube cover
    Cautions -
    • It is recommended to connect only the MIC-KEY Extension Set to the MIC-KEY G Feeding Tube
    • To avoid damage, do not insert medication or nutrition directly into the feeding port valve without the use of an extension set
    • Flush the feeding tube and extension sets before and after every use to prevent clogging

Cleaning And Caring Instructions -

  • Wash hands thoroughly with warm, soapy water before touching the feeding tube
  • Clean the skin around and under the MIC-KEY G feeding tube daily using mild soap, water, and a soft lint-free cloth or cotton-tipped applicator
    Note - Avoid puncturing or tearing any part of the tube or extension sets

Mic-Key Tube & Port Care -

  • Clean the external portion of the feeding tube
  • Be careful not to pull or manipulate the tube excessively
  • Make sure both your tube and stoma are kept clean and dry

Tips for using this Gastrostomy Tube

  • To avoid a “balloon burst,” use your MIC-KEY G Feeding Tube, as indicated in the Instructions for Use (IFU)
  • To avoid damage, always use the correct equipment. Only use the extension sets as instructed by a clinician. Only use a syringe for its intended purpose.
  • Replace extension sets as per the IFU.
  • Only use sterile or distilled water to fill your balloon.
  • A medical professional will determine the proper length of the tube by using a stoma-measuring device and then recommend the proper length. If there are issues with the tube or stoma, or significant weight is gained or lost, contact your care team. A new measurement could be required.
  • The external base of the feeding tube should rest just above the skin surface. A good fit is considered 1 to 2 mm above the skin, about the thickness of a dime. If the external base is sitting too low or high, contact your clinician to see if you need to be re-measured.
  • Refer to the IFU or the first page of this guide for the inflation volumes of your balloon. It will vary based on tube size.
  • Only use a water-soluble lubricant.
  • The gastrostomy  Tube Feeding features an anti-reflux valve located toward the top of the feeding port. When you attach the extension set, this valve is opened to allow feeding. It is important to keep both the feeding port and the anti-reflux valve clean with proper flushings.
  • To avoid valve damage, do not insert medication or nutrition directly into the feeding port valve.

Contraindications - Contraindications for placement of a gastrostomy feeding tube include but are not limited to ascites, colonic interposition, portal hypertension, peritonitis, and morbid obesity.
