Tube Feeding Tips: Excilon Drain Sponges

Excilon® Drain Sponges Hold Up Better

I am a first time visitor to Tube Talk and I stumbled on a posting about the softwick drain sponge. I have used them too, but find that they can fray and leave strings/lint pieces in the wound area. May I suggest the Kendall Excilon® split drain sponge. They are a similar product: a 4” x 4” pre-cut drain sponge that will fit nicely around a g-tube, but they hold up better and don’t fall apart. They are excellent for trachesotomy care as well-one place where you surely don’t want excess lint!
