NEVER bolus feed the J-port of a GJ tube-Tuesday Tube Facts

Did you know…?

It is important to NEVER bolus feed the J-port of a GJ tube. The intestine is not able to hold as large of a volume as the stomach can.[1]

It is not uncommon to see continuous feeds of 20 hours a day or more with GJ tubes, especially at the beginning of feeding.[1]
