    How to Remove Home TPN(Nutrition) Post Gastric Bypass Surgery!
    his part comes after the actual infusion. I will do the actual setup this evening and post so everyone knows what I must do daily. Im on the TPN 16hrs and off 8 hrs every day. I hope this is educational to someone out there!
    PEG Feeding TubeThis 3D animation reveals the placement of a percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy – PEG , or “feeding tube” in patients who are unable to take food by mouth for an extended period of time. It demonstrates the two main surgical techniques for PEG tube placement. 1. The “pull” method, 2. The “push” method. ANH00005
