What is the Avanos Clog Zapper Feeding Tube Declogger?

The Clog Zapper Feeding Tube Declogger by Avanos effectively and efficiently unclogs blockages in enteral feeding tubes to extend the feeding tube's lifespan. The system comes with a 12-inch applicator and two syringes. One of these syringes comes pre-loaded and ready with a de-clogging enzyme-based formula. This formula is a combination of acids, buffers, metal inhibitors, and antimicrobial agents that have been shown to successfully break down clogs and residue to restore Feeding Tubes for clean and safe use. The formula does this safely with natural, food-grade ingredients and without the use of any harsh chemicals.
