Preparation

  • Instructions for Use: Ready-To-Hang Container

    All liquid medical foods, regardless of type of administration system, require careful handling because they can support microbial growth. Follow these instructions for clean technique and proper setup to reduce the potential for microbial contamination. NOTE: Failure to follow the Instructions for Use increases the potential for microbial contamination and reduces hangtime.
    • Pump feeding is recommended; use an 8 Fr or larger tube. If gravity feeding use a 10 Fr or larger tube.
    • Administer product at room temperature.
    • THOROUGHLY wash hands with soap and water before handling container or feeding set.
    • Turn container upside down and SHAKE VIGOROUSLY, using a twisting motion for at least 10 seconds.
    • DO NOT touch any part of the container or feeding set that comes into contact with the formula.
    • When initiating feeding, follow physician's instructions. Adjust flow rate and volume according to patient's condition and tolerance.
    • Additional fluid requirements should be met by giving water between or after feedings or when flushing the tube.
