Enteral Tube Feeding is a method of introducing liquid nutrient formulas directly into the stomach via a narrow tube. Patients being fed with enteral feeding tubes are generally unable to safely eat and drink safely, or have difficulty swallowing. What are some of the problems faced by patients who rely on enteral tube feeding for their nutrition? Accidental separation of feeding tube connectors is a real problem. Caregivers for infants, children, and adults of all ages that are dependent upon feeding tubes agree that there is a need for a more secure method of maintaining the integrity of enteral tube connections.
Feeding solutions are expensive. Each patient has his daily nutrient requirement pumped through a small tube and delivered directly into the stomach. Accidental separation of enteral feeding tube connectors wastes formula and makes it impossible to know what was successfully delivered to the patient. TubieGuard fills a need for solving enteral tube feeding problems that arise. The TubieGuard is a case that protects feeding tubes where the connectors may be vulnerable to tampering, leaking, or separation. The TubieGuard will accommodate all brands and styles of enteral tube feeding connectors and is available in three colors.
