Nasogastric (NG) tube

A nasogastric (NG) tube is a long flexible tube inserted into a person's nose and threaded into the stomach to deliver fluid that contains nutrients directly into the stomach (tube feeding). An NG tube may also be used to drain liquid or air from the stomach and to deliver medicines to a person who temporarily cannot swallow.
