It is a tool used to deliver food in children who have problems with swallowing.A child with severe brain damage, who has trouble responding to a gastric tube can qualify for Gastrostomy intervention. Gastrostomy tube isn’t a permanent solution to poor eating in the child. It must only be used when there is a temporary reduction of food intake by regular means.
