I am a nurse in a school with children with complex care needs. One of the children receives NG bolus feeds about a half hour after arriving in the morning and about 45 minutes after lunch.
This child was just started on omeprazole and receives it in the morning before coming in to school.
pH tends to read 6 at the morning feed and 5 or below for the afternoon one.
Just wondering if anyone else has dealt with this issue of pH being higher than one would normally find acceptable and other than knowing you have stomach contents how would you ensure its indeed in the right place?
Thanks for the input.
