Vomiting (Child) [English] Permalink Public

Vomiting (throwing up) happens when very strong stomach contractions force a large part of the stomach contents back up the swallowing tube (esophagus) and out through the mouth or nose. It is usually caused by a minor illness. Vomiting is not the same as regurgitation. Regurgitation is the effortless spitting up of a small amount of food or liquid. Food goes up the swallowing tube and into the mouth. Regurgitation is very common in babies. It is not harmful. Audio available. (English)

Clean Intermittent Catheterization (CIC): Step By Step Instructions for Boys [English] Permalink Public

CIC is a technique that your child will have to do several times a day to help empty urine (pee) from his bladder. CIC stands for Clean Intermittent Catheterization: Clean: as germ-free as possible Intermittent: done on a regular schedule many times a day Catheterization: using a catheter, a kind of thin tube, to drain urine out of the bladder. CIC is necessary when your child is unable to empty his bladder on his own, when his bladder leaks urine, or when very high pressure has developed in the bladder. If the bladder is not properly emptied, infections or other problems can happen. CIC is not hard to do. Your child cannot hurt his bladder if he follows the nurse’s directions. With a little practice, almost everyone can learn the technique, even a 5-year-old child. Audio available. (English)

Mitrofanoff: Catheterization and Care (Child) [English] Permalink Public

A Mitrofanoff​ (say: me-TROFF-an-off) is a small tunnel from the bladder to the outside of the body. This tunnel is made with surgery (an operation). The opening on the outside of the body is called a stoma. Right after the operation, your child will have a tube that drains urine (pee) from the bladder. This is called a suprapubic catheter. A catheter is a thin, soft tube. Later, you and your child need to learn how to use a different kind of catheter. This catheter drains urine through the Mitrofanoff. You will put it in every time your child's bladder needs to be emptied. A nurse will teach you and your child how to catheterize the Mitrofanoff. (English)
