Gastrostomy Feeding Tube: Children with cerebral palsy may have trouble or be unable to eat. Some children have difficulty swallowing certain medications. Parents may want to consider using a feeding tube for their child to get adequate nutrition. The decision to use a feeding tube will require the involvement of nutritionists and doctors. Your child may not be getting enough calories or have a slow rate of weight gain. Even though their weight is within the recommended range, it's possible that they are deficient in certain vitamins. Your child's doctor will recommend the best type of feeding tube for you. You can insert tubes through the nose or into the stomach wall. The procedure will be performed under general anesthesia. It should not be painful. Here are some terms and types you might be interested in: G-tube (Gastrostomy tube) is a tube that is inserted through the abdomen and into the stomach. This tube is used when long-term feeding plans are in place. PEG tubes - PEG stands for "percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy." It's a type G-tube that is inserted endoscopically into your stomach. Bard Buttons - Named after the company that makes them, a bard button is a G tube with an external button that flushes with the skin. To facilitate feeding, an extension tube can be connected. Nasogastric (NG), Tubes - A tube that is inserted through one nostril and passes through the esophagus to reach the stomach. This tube is used for short-term needs. This does not require any surgical procedures to insert. These tubes are similar to NG Tubes but are threaded into the middle of the small intestine (the Jejunum) or the Duodenum (the beginning of the small intestine just above the stomach). These tubes are for children who cannot eat from the stomach. If your child is deemed to be a benefit from one of these feeding tubes then you should consult your doctor or nutritionist to determine the best type of formula for them. You can buy both pre-made formulas and make your own. Gastrostomy is the general term used to describe the procedure of inserting a feeding tube.
