Gastric intubation via the nasal passage (ie, the nasogastric route) is a common procedure that provides access to the stomach for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. A nasogastric (NG) tube is used for the procedure. The placement of an NG tube can be uncomfortable for the patient if the patient is not adequately prepared with anaesthesia to the nasal passages and specific instructions on how to cooperate with the operator during the procedure.
