About

Insertion of a nasogastric tube (NGT) in anesthetized patients can be a disappointing experience. Many techniques have been explained to improve success rate along with increasing safety, such as forward displacement of the larynx, tube rigidity improvement methods, pushing it down directly through pharynx or using a guide tube. Failure of insertion under general anesthesia reached 50% in some publications

150 participants in 2 patient groups

Didgital group
Active Comparator group
Description:
After induction of anesthesia, and after ensuring muscle relaxation, NGT will be inserted through the selected nostril and advanced for 12 cm then the NGT was advanced according to study group advancing. In control group; NGT was inserted with patient head flexed. In D group, after feeling the NGT in pharynx, with the head in neutral position,the index finger was used to support the NGT with slight direction towards the left side. This will prevent tube kinking at this point in front of the resistance offered by the inflated tube cuff or arytenoids cartilage. Also, this digital support reinforces the tube at the area weakened by its openings
