Important notes

  • Do not use fluids containing acids, particularly fruit juices, since they may cause coagulation of the nutritional protein.
  • If the tube blocks, the tube must be exchanged. Under no circumstances should the tube be forced flushed. Nor should any attempt be made to recreate patency by use of a guidewire. This could cause damage to the tube, injury to the patient and peritonitis due to leakage.
