A feeding tube provides a way to obtain life-sustaining nutrients. This method of “eating” bypasses the mouth and esophagus and delivers nutrition directly into your stomach or small intestine. Keeping your feeding tube secure, clean and safe is important! In this section, learn how to care for your tube and the skin around it, how to deliver feedings, help prevent common complications and more.
