PREPARATION

  • INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE:


    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 may reduce hangtime.

    235-mL Can

    • Shake well and clean top of can thoroughly before opening.

    Oral Feeding

    • May be fed at room temperature or chilled.
    • Serving TwoCal® HN chilled enhances its flavour.


    Tube Feeding:

    • Minimum tube size: enteral feeding pump 8 Fr. Gravity feeding is not recommended.
    • Administer product at room temperature.
    • THOROUGHLY wash hands with soap and water before handling can or feeding set.
    • When initiating feeding, follow health care professional'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.

    Ready-to-Hang Container

    • Pump feeding is recommended; use an 8 Fr or larger tube. Gravity feeding is not recommended.
    • 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.

    • When initiating feeding, follow health care professional'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 Feeding Set with Safety Screw Cross-Spike Connector:

    • Remove protective cover from READY-TO-HANG (RTH) cap.
    • Remove protective cover from feeding set connector.
    • Insert feeding set connector into port of RTH Safety Screw Cap and pierce foil.
    • Turn feeding set connector collar clockwise until it is securely fastened.
