What Is a G-Tube?
Sometimes, children have a difficult time getting their nutrition by mouth like many other people. So the best alternative for this issue is a gastronomy tube, also known as a “g-tube.” With this, these children can now get the nutrients they need to thrive. During a procedure called a “gastronomy,” these tubes are placed inside the body and can stay in as long as the child needs it. But if you aren’t careful, g-tube feeding can be tricky. That’s why you need a professional.
Of course, there could be a number of reasons why a child might need a g-tube. Some may be congenital, or presenting at birth. Issues with the mouth, esophagus, stomach, or intestines could cause numerous problems. Alternatively, these issues can also be present due to extreme problems with taking medicines, sucking and swallowing disorders, or even a failure to thrive. Thanks to the g-tube, your child can have a much easier time with daily life. And with help from a professional team like the one at PediaTrust, you can rest easy when your child is in our care.
What We Can Do
Thanks to our team of trained professionals, such as qualified nurses, we have the skills on hand to give your child the care and attention they need. On top of g-tube feeding, our daycare also offers a number of services and benefits for every child’s different needs.
As far as services go, our professionals can help with the following:
- Transportation. It can be difficult to travel with medically fragile children sometimes. Let us handle it.
- A variety of therapies. As we said, every child’s needs are different. So that’s why we have speech, occupational, and physical therapy services available so your child can grow with helpful professionals.
- Social interaction with other children. Sometimes it can be difficult to interact when you’re a medically fragile child. But the children in our care all manage similar issues. With this in mind, children can find it easier to communicate and interact.
- Personalized care. Every child’s needs are different. This doesn’t change just because a child has special needs. Let us make a personalized plan that cares for your child entirely.
In addition to gastrointestinal issues, we can also treat a number of health conditions when it comes to the children in our care.
- Diabetic care
- Genetic disorders
- Heart conditions
- Medication management
