Quick question... am I correct in thinking that since the J peg/tube is in the small intestine, there is really no way of accurately checking any residual ?
Do we check residual at all in a J tube prior to administering a tube feeding?
What about checking PLACEMENT?
I understand with a G tube, NG tube, etc., all the above are more than neccessary, and that placement in a J tube would appear neccessary as well, but I need some input or clarification.
Any feedback appreciated !!!
