Hi I was just wondering how you vent a mic-key button. (1) I have heard that you can attach the syringe (without plunger) to extension tubing, open clamp, lower syringe to allow air to flow out. (2) I have also heard that you can fill syringe and plunger with 10 ml of air and suck air out of stomach using the plunger until you draw back stomach contents.
The physician wants to vent the pt 30 minutes after the feeding for 10-15 min, according to the family. If you use method (1) after a feeding wouldn't all the feeding just come out? In order to vent with method (1) the syringe would have to be lowered, correct. Bc if not air would be flowing into the stomach?
