Description

Nasogastric tubes provide a safe means of delivering nutrition support to many patients in hospital and the community. Insertion and care of these tubes will be familiar to many nurses. Evidence has shown that misplaced tubes, either on insertion or during use, can cause serious harm or even death to patients. This learning module explores the safety challenges posed during the insertion and maintenance of nasogastric tubes. Guidance and evidence should provide nurses with the knowledge, skills and reassurance to manage these tubes safely.

Objectives

This module aims to provide the reader with an understanding of the safe and effective nursing care of adult patients who require nasogastric tubes for feeding. The terms feeding and feed will be used to represent the introduction of any feed, liquid or medication through a nasogastric tube.

On completion of this course you will gain an understanding of:
Identify the indications and contraindications to the bedside insertion of a nasogastric tube for feeding.
Outline the steps involved in the safe insertion of a nasogastric tube and confirmation of tube position.
Explain the importance of clear and accurate documentation in the prevention and detection of nasogastric feeding tube complications.
Develop a plan of nursing care to prevent nasogastric tube-related complications.
Discuss the support that a patient discharged into the community with a nasogastric feeding tube may need.
