    Mic-Key is a "button" low-profile skin level "port" enteral feeding tube (gastric or jejunal) that connects to the enteral feeding system via extension tubing.

    Regarding the OP's question, I only that usually Miic-Key G/J and J tubes must be placed by international radiology. I don't have a PA license so I cannot speak as to whether or not an LPN can replace a Mic-Key G tube but I suspect it might be agency/facility specific and not an absolute answer.

    Yes LPNs may change Mickey buttons. I do home care and we do it all the time, both routine and emergency.
