Pediatric kidney transplantation part 29

Children

 

DEVICES AND TUBES

  • Your child will have a bladder catheter (a soft plastic tube, aka Foley catheter) that will continuosly drain urine. This tube is inserted during surgery
  • A nasogastric tube may also be in place. This tube is inserted through a nostril and then passed down into the stomach. It is designed to drain stomach fluid.
  • As your child will still be asleep or very drowsy at this time, they will get fluid, medications, and nutrition through intravenous (IV) drips. These will normally go into your child’s neck or chest and arm or the back of their hand.
