Tube Feeding Tips: Clamp for Easier Hook Up
Share |

Clamp Makes Hooking Up Easier

When connecting a syringe to the tube or connecting the tube to the bag on the pump, it is necessary to pinch the tube so the contents of the stomach do not come out. For this purpose, I use a hemostat like those used during an operation to clamp veins or arteries. It is easy to clamp or release, and leaves both hands free.

Editor’s note: Be sure the clamp has plastic or padded teeth, so they won’t rip the tube.
