Tube Feeding Tips: Motility/Pressure Issues

Bags Help Child with Motility/Pressure Issues

My son currently has a G-tube and separate J-tube. Before he received his J-tube, the Farrell bag was used with G-tube feeds (24 hours continuous) and it was a blessing! Now that he is on J-tube feeds only, the Farrell bag is used solely with the G-tube (without feeds) as a method of continuous ventilation. It has saved him from a tracheostomy; gastric bloating from his dysphagia compresses his lungs. I highly recommend the bags, especially for children who have severe motility/pressure issues like my son. He has herniated his gastrostomy twice and required surgical repair. My son cannot function without them.
