|Tube Feeding Tips: Keeping G-port Closed|
Press’n Seal® Keeps Port Closed
The G-port on my G-J tube kept popping open and spilling stomach contents all over the place. The pressure would build up in my stomach and the next thing I knew the G-port was open. I found that GLAD Press’n Seal® worked to keep it shut. Cut a small strip and wrap it around the G-port just below the J-port; the balloon’s port will be covered as well. Then press it so it will seal. You will need to change the wrap 3-4 times a day due to the smell.
I have also used Press’n Seal® to keep my PICC line dry during showering. Just wrap it around your arm, seal it and add tape around the top and bottom.
