|Reusable, non-disposable feeding tubes
should be adequately cleaned and disinfected between uses. Naturally, the most
efficacious process includes thorough cleaning followed by sterilization. In the
absence of a sterilization system , high-level disinfection is appropriate since
feeding tubes fall into the FDA classification as "non-critical devices"
because they are intended to make contact with mucous membranes and are not intended
to enter into the vasculature nor make contact with sterile tissue. |
following steps should be performed on feeding tubes that fall within the category
as described above:
2. Next, immerse the tube into a basin containing detergent and warm tap water. Micro-Zyme detergent is especially produced for these types of devices. Using a 25cc syringe will allow the cleaning detergent solution to be drawn into the interior of the tube. Several flushes will facilitate the cleaning process. The use of a long brush will allow for the scubbing of the interior lumen and facilitate the removal of debris. Be certain that the interior and exterior are free of visible soil and debris before proceeding to the next step.
3. Next, thoroughly rinse the both the interior and exterior of the tube and and dry. If possible, blow air through the interior lumen to remove water droplets.
4. Immerse the cleaned tube into a solution of Micro-Cide 28 high-level disinfectant that was prepared according to its product label. Using a 25cc syringe, draw the Micro-Cide 28 solution into the interior lumen so as to completely fill the tube with solution along with the interior of the syringe itself. Allow the syringe to remain attached during the soaking period to hold the solution inside of the tube. Removing the syringe will allow the solution to drain back into the basin. Allow the tube and syringe to soak for 25 minutes.
5. At the conclusion of the soak period, detach the syringe from the tube and allow the solution to run back into the soaking basin. Follow with 3 sequential rinses to remove any residual Micro-Cide-28 solution from the tube.
6. Dry the entire xterior and if possible blow filtered warm air through the interior lumen to remove any water droplets.
7. Store in a clean,
dry and covered container until next use.
