This resource can be used to illustrate the gastric lavage procedure. Gastric lavage is the standard method of obtaining specimens for Tuberculosis (TB) diagnosis in young children. It is generally carried out only in infants and children below the age of two years. In older children specimens for TB microscopy and culture are better obtained by sputum induction, or voluntary coughing.
There are two items included here:
Gastric lavage Presentation.PPT - presentation that illustrates and explains the procedure with text
Gastric lavage Animation sequence.PPT - Animation which demonstrates how this procedure can be performed
