Peds question

  1. I can not think of this for the life of me and it is really bothering me. If a child is shooting out spit up what is wrong with it. I know that its not reflux and I am pretty sure it has something do to with the lower end of the stomach but I can not figure this out to save my life. Any one have any idea what I am talking about?

    Very good, remember for testing purposes to focus mostly on identifying the signs and symptoms, potential complications that may develop, and what you, as the nurse, will do to intervene, maintain and prevent.
