Case presentation

Conclusion Scope of Presentation Methods of providing artificial nutrition via the gastrointestinal tract


Gastrostomy & Jejunostomy
Endoscopic, Radiological inserted What is Enteral Feeding? Percutaneous Endoscopic Gastrostomy

A surgical procedure to place a feeding tube inside the stomach through the skin under the guidance of an endoscope

Swallowing dysfunction and airway protection

Convenient and cosmetically acceptable What is a PEG? Low caries activity

Alterations to the oral indigenous microbiota

Excessive plaque and calculus build-up

Oral hypersensitivity Implications on Oral Health Gastrointestinal complication
Nausea & Vomiting
Constipation Aspiration pneumonia PEG site
Buried bumper syndrome
Fistula Formation
Inadvertent removal Risks and complications Abundant calculus, low caries activity, oral hypersensitivity

Aspiration pneumonia

Oral health may have significant consequences in terms of general health

Education and oral care plans for PEG-tube feeding patients Summary Neuromuscular impairments compromise protective airway reflexes

Bacteroids, Porphyromonas and Fusobacterium species

20% to 30% of PEG-fed patients Oral health care Body should be vertically symmetrical with neutral head flexion

Ultrasonic scaler, handpieces and airwater syringes should be limited and for all procedures
