Hey fellow Neo's,
Our unit is looking for assistance on the use of OGT/NGT's in your unit. Currently, we place an OGT for feeding and an OGT for venting (usually a 4-6Fr for feeding/8Fr for Vent) on infants that are vented,CPAP and sometimes even NC.
We are looking at changing our practice and are curious what other units are doing...
Do you use 2 tubes in your unit? (One for feeds and one for venting)
What size tubes does your unit use? We have 4Fr to 8Fr. Even on our VLBW we use an 8Fr for venting. What does your unit do?
Or do you place one tube and vent after feedings?
Just looking for some info! Thanks in advance!
