Nasogastric tube

A new animated video has been produced by NHS Improvement to support guidance on who can check the placement of nasogastric tubes.

The two-minute video is designed to raise awareness among staff that only someone with the right training can confirm the correct placement of a nasogastric tube.

Dorothy Keane, CoR Professional Officer for e-LfH, confirmed that the team are currently developing 2 e-learning sessions in response to recent patient safety publications.

1 session will cover the main principles of correctly identifying the NG tube position on a chest radiograph.

The 2nd session will focus on the clinical governance around interpretation of NG tube placement with particular reference to training, audit and safe practice.

The sessions should be published in the early Autumn and will be part of the Image Interpretation programme.
