About this deal

Boot levers are usually a rectangular piece of wood or plastic with a 'V' or 'U' shape at one end. They may assist you to remove your boots or shoes without bending down to hold the shoe or boot. To use a boot lever, place the heel of the boot or shoe into the 'V' or 'U' shaped end of the remover. Your other foot should then be positioned on the other end of the remover to hold it steady while you ease your foot out of the boot or shoe. There are many recordable resources on the market such as Talking Postcards and Talking Pegs. Recordable buttons such as Talking Points offer many solutions to many classroom problems – the ten ideas below are tried and tested, though I’m sure you will come up with many more of your own!

GJ feeding is rarely the first method of ‘enteral feeding’ (feeding directly into the gastrointestinal tract) used. Nasogastric (NG) and gastrostomy feeding are usually tried first. In some cases, you may need to be started on GJ feeding without trying gastrostomy feeding first, your lead team will discuss this with you if required. You may need to stop taking some of your medications before your procedure. We have included some common examples below.

Certain conditions like diabetes or Raynaud’s can cause circulation problems, especially to the hands, lower legs and feet. It them becomes important to protect your hands and feet from cold and possible damage which you may not feel.

(See the “Use and Care of a G-Button” brochure).If there is a gastrostomy tube in place already, they will have a well-developed tract through the skin to the stomach, so converting the gastrostomy to a GJ tube device carries few risks. If your child is having the gastrostomy formed radiologically, they will need to have a drink of barium beforehand. Take the B elevator to the 2 nd floor. Turn right and enter the Endoscopy/Surgical Day Hospital Suite through the glass doors. What to expect As many have a hook on the alternative end, they can also be used for reaching items of clothing, such as pants and trousers.

Do not take tub baths or go swimming for 2 weeks after your procedure. This is for the individual who is ambulatory and feels the long PEG tube is socially inconvenient (not to be confused with Replacement balloon PEG which also has got a balloon as a retaining device) If the existing device is a gastrostomy button , which is being changed to a low profile balloon GJ device, then this can be done awake, and the risks involved in this procedure are low. They will feel the doctor or nurse changing the tube, and may not like having to stay still, but this procedure is not usually painful.If the balloon doesn’t work, use your replacement button. Call your home health company as soon as possible to get another button for the future. If you have a nasogastric tube as a method of feeding you should not have any feed down it for at least six hours (preferably overnight) before the procedure.

If you have nothing to put in the stoma, replace the old button and tape it down. This will keep the stoma open until you can seek medical attention. Remove the water. The amount that should be in the balloon is on the top of the button or in the instruction book. Move the plunger of the syringe in a push/pull motion and wrap a warm flannel around the length of the tube, massaging it gently with your thumb and fingers.If you have not had a gastrostomy before, there is a very small chance that the large intestine could be damaged during the insertion, but using barium beforehand reduces this risk. If you have not had barium the night before the procedure, the consultant may cancel the operation as the risk of damaging the large intestine may be too great. If you have an automatic implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (AICD), you will need to get a clearance letter from your cardiologist (heart doctor) before your procedure. Arrange for someone to take you home Fastenings for clothing can be used to adapt existing clothing. This includes Velcro fastenings and zips that can be unzipped from either end. These fastenings may be easier to manage than buttons if you have reduced grip or dexterity in your hands and fingers. Novotny NM et al.

Button devices are held in place by a water-filled balloon inside the stomach, and you should change the water every week.
