Seanne Wedman, a clinical products specialist at Cardinal Health Canada and former RN who feeds her son every day enterally, shares her story about how ENFit® has improved her quality of life as a caregiver, and most importantly, helped her improve outcomes for her son.
my name is Sean wittman and I am an employee of Cardinal Health based in Canada. But primarily I am the mother to Cameron wedemen who has been diagnosed with charge syndrome and hypoplastic left heart. Cameron has been centrally fed for 11 years the entirety of his life and for the remainder of his life we have been using the normal connections where the catheter tip fits into his G two. Primarily we experience on a regular basis where it becomes dislodged and we have formula and gastric juices all over our surfaces. Our couch has been cleaned numerous times. This makes it hard as a mom and as a caregiver because we don't know how many calories and how much fluid camera received in that day. Will we have to top him up and because he's Fed 135 cc/h. This also extends his feeding period, making it from 18 hours to possibly 24 hours maybe even for two days. Having the infant threaded connection now means we get to secure it into place. This means that we don't have the leaking happening. And Cameron is receiving his central feeding and his medications and we're not feeding and watering his bed or other surfaces around us. Also, when we go to get the meds because the compounds are sticky, the formula sticky. Sometimes we get sluggish when we get to push the meds through and what happens is it pops back out at us. So either way he got all of the meds or he didn't. I now have a secure clean place to push these meds and it's not spitting back out at Cameron and I I'm grateful to share my story, and I'm also very proud to work for an organization that's committed to patient safety and quality of life, Cardinal health. You are essential to care.
