MIC-KEY Tube Feeding Procedure (1:37 Minutes)
Let’s walkthrough a typical feeding procedure from start to finish. It is simple and logical. It will be second nature to you in no time. Before you do anything else, wash your hands every time. This is very important. Before feeding, use a small amount of water to flush and pre-lubricate the extension set and tube. Be sure you check the MIC-KEY Feeding Tube before each feeding to make sure that it’s still in position. It’s a simple procedure. For details, consult your guide book or ask your nurse or doctor. Now that you’ve done the prep, let’s see how a feeding setup works. Just follow these steps: Using the appropriate extension set as your doctor has directed, connect the extension set to the MIC-KEY feeding port. Align the black line on the extension set connector with the line on the feeding port. Push it in to the anti-reflux valve and turn it clockwise. To disconnect after feeding, realign the black line and pull out the extension set connector. If your doctor has prescribed continuous feeding, connect the continuous extension set to the set connector from the feeding bag with a firm push and twist. Wetting the set connector before insertion, they provide a more secure connection. For a bolus feeding, connect the bolus extension set to the catheter tip syringe with a firm push and twist. Finally, your doctor may have recommended that you check for proper placement before each feeding. For more details on how to do this, refer to your care guide or contact your healthcare professional.

Product QuestionsOur old feeding tube had a clamp/clip on it to prevent the contents of the stomach from exiting the tube to the outside when the rubber cap is dislodged/opened by accident. The clamp looks like the one pictured o the MIC-Key Tube Secur Lok Extension Feeding sets. Do any of the feeding tubes come with these clamps? Without the clamp each time the cap comes open the contents of the stomach come back out through the tube.Question by: Les on Apr 4, 2016 7:24:53 PMNo answers yet. Be the first to answer the question!I had a new button put in. It leaks around the button. What is the cause of this?Question by: John Crawford on Mar 4, 2017 12:55:00 PMWe cannot make any specific recommendations regarding items on our site. It's best to speak with a medical professional for proper advice.Answer by: Shain Gillet (Admin) on Sep 25, 2017 8:07:00 AM
The packaging for shipment, however, is ridiculously wasteful: a cardboard container 14 inches deep, 18 inches long and 12 inches wide filled with plastic envelopes for a strong paper box 6 inches by 13 inches by 7 inches. A padded envelope or a normal FedEx sized box would have been enough protection.
I will order again thru Vitality Medical
I spoke to a young man named Gilbert and he was an excellent representative of Vitality Medical
