Precautions for gastric tube operation
1. The intubation action should be gentle and stable, especially when passing through the stenosis of the throat and esophagus, to avoid damaging the esophageal mucosa. Emphasis is placed on "swallowing" rather than "inserting" during operation.
2. When patients experience nausea during intubation, they should pause for a moment and be instructed to take deep breaths to distract the patient's attention, relieve tension, and reduce gastric muscle contractions; If coughing or breathing difficulties occur, it may be due to the stomach tube accidentally entering the throat. The stomach tube should be immediately removed and re inserted; If the insertion is not smooth, do not forcefully insert it. Check if the feeding tube is coiled in the oropharynx and pull it out a little before inserting it.
3. When inserting a tube for a comatose patient, the patient's head should be tilted back. When the gastric tube is inserted into the epiglottis, it should be about 15cm. The left hand should hold the head up, bringing the lower jaw close to the sternum handle, increasing the curvature of the pharyngeal passage, and sliding the tube end along the posterior wall to the desired length.
4. After intubation, the patient's gastric tube should be regularly observed for blockage or detachment; Whether the patient has nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, damage to the oral and nasopharyngeal mucosa, constipation, etc.
5. After intubation, regular care should be given to the nostrils and mouth to keep them clean and moist.
