Hi, I'd like to know how to interpret the word "gavage" into Spanish? I already understand that it somehow relates to a "forced feeding" via a catheter. I'm paraphrasing, but the statement went something like this: "Please feed the child 1oz of liquid orally and gavage the remainder via the nasogastric tube." These instructions were given to the patient's mother concluding a swallow test. Hope this clarifies matters. Thanks!
