Changing a Low Profile Feeding Tube
This video shows you how to change a low profile feeding tube. Approval from the health care provider is necessary before you replace the feeding tube. Never change a feeding tube without prior training or before you feel confident doing so. The patient’s plan of care determines how often to change the low profile feeding tube. PHS created this video as a companion to our online education course for nurses. The video assumes an understanding of medical and technical information. Information in the video does not replace your care plan. Contact your health care provider if you have questions. You can find PHS online courses at www.pediatrichomeservice.com/education/.
