Feeding Tube Patency Restorers, Flushing

Definition : Feeding tube patency restorers that flush liquid to remove obstructions to occluded feeding tubes. These devices usually include a catheter of appropriate diameter and length (e.g., a 5 Fr catheter up to 1.40 m in length), an applicator, and a syringe for flushing the clog with water or another solution (e.g., saline). Some devices include a prefilled syringe for administration of declogging solution before flushing. Flushing patency restorers are used to remove obstructions in gastrostomy and gastrostomy-jejunal feeding tubes; they can also be used to restore patency in nasogastric and nasojejunal feeding tubes.
