A form of nutrition that is delivered into the digestive system as a liquid. A small feeding tube may be placed through the nose, or it may be surgically placed into the stomach or the intestinal tract through an opening made on the outside of the abdomen.
We supply PVC and silicone nasogastric tubes compatible with Kangaroo feeding sets or enteral syringes for short-term use or longer durations of up to six weeks. HCCSS South West and YSL provides Kangaroo feeding pumps for the first 60 days. If the character of the disease requires longer therapy Assistive Device Program (ADP) supports the purchase of an enteral feeding pump.
We carry various administration sets and supplies and use EnFit lines, connectors, and extension sets for Kangaroo and gravity systems to safeguard our patients against equipment misconnections.
