While you might be a pro at all things tube-feeding, you’re likely to find yourself faced with explaining the ins-and-outs to someone who isn’t familiar. This could be your family, a teacher or even a new healthcare provider.
Our MIC-KEY* Quick Start Guide was initially created for discharge nurses—those who check someone out of the hospital after a feeding tube is placed—to provide new feeding-tube users with the key information they need to know about their device. We think this guide will serve as the perfect resource for you to use when you’re required to educate others on the use and care of feeding tubes. You can download a copy here.
In this guide, we cover…
- How to feed
- Cleaning and care of the tube and stoma site
- How to use extension sets
- What you’ll find in your feeding tube kit
- Our top 10 tips for success
