Newborn and Infant Care
My child has a PEG tube and I am concerned about the crossbar. It is internal and I have been told it should be external? Are there different types and what are they? I am trying to find out about these tubes.
This question is being referred to the Child Development and Health Ask an Expert. Look for your answer there in a few days under PEG tube.
