The NeoMed feeding tube cap is a plugged design which closes the tube yet allows airflow through the hub. The NeoConnect system includes a patent-pending hub “cleaning tool” designed to help remove any residual material from the threads.
Failure to maintain hubs can impact connections and allow bacterial growth, necessitating more frequent feeding tube changes
Cleaning tool rotates 360° allowing two brushes to remove debris from the inner perimeter of the threads
Lumen plug blocks feeding tube opening during use
Disposable tool. Single use.
Can be used with cleaning agents (distilled water, saline, etc.) as prescribed by hospital protocols
The NeoConnect cleaning tool is designed to work with NeoConnect open hub feeding tubes
