The Hollister Feeding Tube Attachment Device is used by hospitals and medical facilities to help stabilize the tubes going into a patient. The device helps maintain a secure and fixed attachment that cannot be so easily moved and disrupted. Many facilities rely on the secure attachment for feeding tubes to provide essential nutrients to the patient through the use of enteral formulas.
Tubing sized from 5 through 18 French can be accommodated with the Attachment Device for Feeding Tube (Hollister 9786) -- making it one attachment device that can be used for many sizes and to fit many patients. The device can secure both nasogastric and nasointestinal tubes; this is great news, as you do not need to find a holding attachment device for each individual tube type.
The Hollister FTAD conforms to the patient's nose to better adhere to the skin and the rounded edges of the nose for a tight seal that will not shake off or come loose when in use. The device should only be used once and should not be reused, as oils from the skin will render the adhesive non-usable, defeating the purpose of the attachment device. When placing the device for the first time, clean the nose skin area with a prep wipe such as CURITY Alcohol Prep Pads, which will clean away dirt, grime, and debris that contribute to a lack of adherence.
The feature that sets this attachment device apart from others is the swivel clamp. If the tube being held is positioned in such a way or manner that pulls on or nudges on the skin, the patient will not feel it but instead, be in a relaxed state. The device is not made with natural rubber latex, making it usable with a large variety of patients.
