Good afternoon all,
I started with a new pediactric home care client today and travel with him to school. My client has a GJ tube and is off his continuous feed during his school hours. I have given medications through G tubes countless times, but the client's mother says she hooks up a Farrell Valve to administer meds at home. I have only seen a Farrell Valve once before and it was used as a "burp" bag for feed intolerance to prevent distension and dumping. I have scoured the internet looking for information about using the valve strictly for medications and have found nothing useful. Any ideas or information you can pass on would be most appreciated.
