    Preparation

    Instructions for Use:

    8 fl oz carton

    • Store unopened at room temperature.
    • Shake well prior to opening.
    • Once opened, reclose, refrigerate and use within 48 hours.

    • May be used for total or supplemental nutrition.
    • May be fed at room temperature or chilled.


    Tube Feeding:

    • Follow physician's instructions.
    • Adjust flow rate and volume according to patient's condition and tolerance.
    • Feed at room temperature using a feeding pump or syringe.
    • Additional fluid requirements should be met by giving water between or after feedings or when flushing the tube.
    • Avoid contamination during preparation and use.


    Ready-To-Hang Container

    All liquid medical foods, regardless of type of administration system, require careful handling because they can support microbial growth. Follow these instructions for clean technique and proper setup to reduce the potential for microbial contamination.

    NOTE: Failure to follow the Instructions for Use increases the potential for microbial contamination and reduces hangtime.

    • Administer product at room temperature.
    • THOROUGHLY wash hands with soap and water before handling container or feeding set.
    • Turn container upside down and SHAKE VIGOROUSLY, using a twisting motion for at least 10 seconds.
    • DO NOT touch any part of the container or feeding set that comes into contact with the formula.
    • When initiating feeding, follow physician's instructions. Adjust flow rate and volume according to patient's condition and tolerance.
    • Additional fluid requirements should be met by giving water between or after feedings or when flushing the tube.


    For Use with Enteral Feeding Pumps:

    • Remove dust cover from RTH Safety Screw Cap.
    • Remove dust cover from feeding set connector.
    • Insert feeding set connector into port of RTH Safety Screw Cap and completely pierce foil.
    • Turn connector collar clockwise until it is securely fastened.
    • Close clamp on set before inverting container.
    • Invert container and suspend, using hanging ring on bottom of container.

    Precautions

    • Follow directions for use provided by manufacturer of feeding sets.
    • Unless a shorter hang time is specified by the set manufacturer, hang product for up to 48 hours after initial connection when clean technique and only one new set are used. Otherwise hang for no more than 24 hours.
