I'm a med surge 1 student. I had a patient with a newly placed PEG tube the other day, I check for placement injecting 30 mls of air and listened for the sounds. I also checked for risidual, I pulled out 50 mls of gastric contents. There was an order to increase the patients feeding by 10 mls every q 6 hrs, the patient was getting 10 mls/hr, I with the assistance of my instructor increased the feeding to 20 mls. Was my patient at high risk for aspiration, concerning the residual of 50 mls?? This is probably not a great question to be asking ... being that I'm probably suppose to know the answer but I would greatly appreciate some feed back.
