Bolus Feeding Procedure

  1. 0 We watched a video in Fundamentals about administering a bolus feeding through a PEG. The video showed the nurse flushing 30 cc of water before and after the feeding which I agree with. Then, the nurse flushed the tube again with 30 cc of air after the final flush with water. This seemed a little overkill. Professor said this is how it done. Thoughts?
