Tubes, Nasogastric, Feeding

Definition : Nasogastric tubes designed to access the stomach for temporary enteral feeding. These devices typically consist of a small diameter (e.g., 8 to 12 French diameter) very soft (e.g., polyurethane, silicone) single-lumen plastic tube (commonly known as Dobhoff tubes) of appropriate length to reach the stomach; the tubes may be attached or not to suction devices. Feeding nasogastric tubes are used mainly in patients who need only enteral feeding and not gastric aspiration, avoiding the possible consequences (e.g., rhinitis, pharyngitis, esophageal strictures) related to the use of larger-diameter tubes.
