The size depends on the volume of your syringe. There are 2 sizes of The Buckwheat Feeding Tube Holder, 60 mL and 140 mL. We get more requests for the 60 mL due to the availability of the 140 mL syringes. We are now a stocking dealer for the MONOJECT™ 140 ML SYRINGES with a catheter tip.
The Buckwheat is 24 inches tall and has worked for 99% of the people we have shipped it to. Only one person has asked for a custom length, which we offer custom lengths with no extra charge. To make sure that the typical length fits you should sit in a chair and measure from the top of the chair to the top of the syringe attached to your PEG extension set with enough height for proper flow. This will give you the height required.
Anodizing creates a durable coating that can be a great coating for medical device parts but, it cannot hide scratches or die marks created prior to anodizing. Aluminium naturally reacts with air to form an aluminium oxide on surfaces. Aluminium oxide is quite hard, but the surface oxidation is not very thick. Through the process of anodizing, the oxide coating is thickened and becomes a very useful barrier against corrosion. If you incur a scratch that is down to bare metal you need to apply a thin coat of clear nail polish to the area to prevent it from oxidizing.
