What to buy with Covidien Kangaroo G Tube Adapter


FAQs About G Tube Adapter

When should a PEG tube be vented?

Venting a G tube means letting gas from your child's stomach out through the end of the G tube. Venting before a feed allows air to escape the stomach before it is filled. This helps to prevent fullness and to bloat.

What type of tube is used for enteral feedings?

The main types of enteral feeding tubes include: Nasogastric tube (NGT) starts in the nose and ends in the stomach. The orogastric tube (OGT) starts in the mouth and ends in the stomach. The nasoenteric tube starts in the nose and ends in the intestines (subtypes include nasojejunal and nasoduodenal tubes).

How often do you change kangaroo pump tubing?

This study suggests changing the alimentation tube and feeding bags every 72 hours (rather than every 24 hours) is appropriate.

What is the difference between a feeding tube and a PEG tube?

PEG tubes are feeding tubes. They deliver nutrition directly to your stomach. You receive a PEG tube through a short procedure called a percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy. In this procedure, most people can go home the same day. The less frequent changes will decrease supply costs and free nursing time for other activities.
