The Medicina ENFit Straws are available in various lengths and bore sizes to allow you to draw up a wide range of different fluids.

Medicine and feed interactions
Some medicines can interact with enteral feeds, vitamins and electrolytes and some need to be given on an empty stomach. It is therefore important to flush before and after each feed to prevent any coagulation of the proteins in the feeds, which can block the feeding tubes.
