Feeding Tubes and Bags
A feeding tube is a device that’s inserted into the stomach through the abdomen to supply nutrition to a patient who cannot ingest food on his or her own. This procedure is known as percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG), esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) or G-tube insertion. During the procedure, an endoscope is inserted through the mouth into the stomach. Through the camera on the endoscope, the operating doctor is able to determine the site for insertion of the feeding tube. A feeding bag is used for the gastro-intestinal feeding in adult, paediatric or neonatal patients. An enteral formula may be administered intermittently or continuously, according to the doctor’s order. For continuous feeding, the feeding bag and tubing is hung on an IV pole. The distal end of the tubing is connected to the proximal end of the feeding tube.
