About The Mic-Key G-Tube
A MIC-KEY low-profile gastrostomy feeding tube (MIC-KEY G-tube) has been inserted into your stomach through the abdominal wall. There is an inflatable balloon at one end and an external base or external retention disc at the other. This tube allows the intake of food and water that your body requires. Your medical professional has measured your stoma length including the optimal diameter (French size or Charrire) to ensure that you have the right size MIC-KEY G-tube.
Mic-Key Extension Set
Use this extension set for continuous feeding. To attach the extension set, align the black line on the patient end of the extension set with black line on the feeding port of the tube. Insert the "nose" of the SECUR-LOK connector into the feeding port and rotate it one quarter turn clockwise. Open the extension set feeding port and screw the ENFit connector of the feeding set to the extension set. The extension set "swivels" with movement and allows you to change position during feeding.
Wash the extension set after every feeding with warm soapy water and rinse it thoroughly. Prompt flushing and rinsing prevents the formula from drying and building up. For hygienic and functionality reasons it's recommended to replace the MIC-KEY Extension Sets at least every 2 weeks.
The External Base of Avanos 8140-16-4.0 Mic-Key Low-Profile Gastrostomy Feeding Tube
The external base or retention disc holds the tube in place yet allows air circulation to the skin around and underneath it. The bottom of the base should rest just above the skin surface. A good fit is considered 3 mm above the skin. The external base consists of 3 parts: the feeding port, closure cap and the balloon port.
