    1. check residual before feeding or giving medication
    2. check pH (before the instillation of any substance through the tube)
    3. irrigation..

    thanx for the reply .... but saunders was exactly what got me confused ... it says check ph before instillation of anything ... so irrigation is also instillation right !!
