Gastric Tube Care: An Overview
A gastrostomy tube (gastric tube or G-tube) is a medical tube inserted into a patient’s abdomen. The purpose of a gastric tube is to deliver nutrition directly to the stomach. Essentially, it is a surgically placed device that helps to ensure proper feeding. A gastrostomy may be needed for a patient who is unable to get adequate nutrition otherwise. Often, but not always, gastrostomy tubes are used to ensure that medically vulnerable children receive the proper calories and fluids they need to develop and mature.
Know the Importance of Proper Gastric Tube Care
Though any type of surgical operation is unnerving, gastrostomies are relatively common procedures. Typically, the operation itself takes less than an hour. The post-surgery recovery is also relatively quick. In fact, children who receive G-tubes are able to resume their normal activities within just a few days.
At the same time, gastric tubes also present some real challenges for patients, parents, and their families. A gastrostomy tube requires regular care and cleaning. If care lapses, there is a real risk of infection or other medical complications. This is where professional support can make all of the difference. A Phoenixville nurse or home health aide trained in gastric tube care can help.
