Old Nursing Practices may be making a come back

  1. We always used to unclog PEG tube feeds by using Coca-Cola straight into PEG tube. It work like a miracle when everything else failed.

    Of course a lot of hospitals officially stopped the use a few years ago, although I know it still goes on.

    Now it seems Coca-cola is being used for bowel obstruction instead of surgery! How remarkable is that!


    I wonder what else is going around from bygone ages that does actually work

    I'm picturing the orders now: NPO except for Coke.
