A Setup That's Quick and Easy

Setting up and using RELiZORB with your enteral tube feeding set is simple.
Just follow the instructions below, step by step.

There are 2 different setup procedures depending on the feeding volume:

  • Feeding volume up to 500 mL using 1 single cartridge
  • Feeding volume greater than 500 mL and up to 1000 mL using 1 tandem configuration

RELiZORB Setup With Volumes Up to 500 mL

icon-setup-steps
  1. Connect the RELiZORB cartridge to the end of the primed enteral feeding pump tubing set.
  2. Connect RELiZORB outlet to the patient extension set or enteral feeding tube and manually prime through the device.
    This illustration provides step-by-step instructions for using RELiZORB with an enteral tube feeding set.

    NOTE: Do not overtighten the enteral feeding pump tubing set when connecting to RELiZORB. A small gap between the flange on the enteral feeding pump tubing set and the RELiZORB is normal.

  3. If using a patient extension set, prime the feeding formula to the end of the patient extension set, and connect to the feeding port (button).
  4. Set the pump to the prescribed flow rate. Proceed with feeding. For detailed setup instructions, see the Patient Guide.

Tandem RELiZORB Setup With Volumes 500-1000 mL

  1. Connect 2 RELiZORB cartridges together to form a tandem RELiZORB.
  2. Connect tandem RELiZORB outlet to the patient extension set or enteral feeding tube and manually prime through the devices.

    NOTE: Do not overtighten the enteral feeding pump tubing set when connecting to RELiZORB. A small gap between the flange on the enteral feeding pump tubing set and the RELiZORB is normal.

  3. If using a patient extension set, prime the feeding formula to the end of the patient extension set, and connect to the feeding port (button).
  4. Set the pump to the prescribed flow rate. Proceed with feeding. For detailed setup instructions, see the Patient Guide.

Helpful Quick Tips

  • Please be sure to use RELiZORB exactly as prescribed by your doctor during each feeding. Do not make any changes to your feeding care plan without first speaking with your doctor or healthcare provider
  • Medicines and saline flushes may only be added to the enteral feed line AFTER  RELiZORB. They may be added to the side port of a Y-Connector extension set located between RELiZORB and the patient (see image above)
  • Examine the RELiZORB pouch. Do not use the RELiZORB if:
    • The pouch seal is broken
    • The current date is past the expiration date shown on the pouch
  • Do not use the RELiZORB cartridge if:
    • The RELiZORB is damaged
    • The RELiZORB has been previously used
  • When feeding is complete, disconnect the RELiZORB from the patient extension set or enteral feeding tube and enteral feeding pump tubing set. Throw away the RELiZORB after use in your trash
