New Resources for Pediatric NG Tube Placement and Verification

Today, the NOVEL Project released two new resources for pediatric nasogastric (NG) tube placement and verification.
 

Spanish Instructional Videos

Two previously released instructional videos on Pediatric Nasogastric Tube Placement and Verification are now available in Spanish. ASPEN encourages the healthcare community to use the videos for training caregivers and clinicians who care for pediatric patients. Two videos are available, one for professionals and the other for caregivers.

 
NOVEL Pocket Cards

This small laminated reference card summarizes the recommended best practices from the NOVEL Project. It also includes a decision tree on when gastric pH measurement should be used and when X-ray is indicated. These quick reference cards have been designed to fit into a clinician’s badge holder, pocket, or wallet. A PDF of the pocket card is available online

U.S. and Canada only: to receive a free laminated pocket card, please complete a contact information form. Printed pocket cards available while supplies last. 

The videos, pocket card and other NOVEL resources are available at nutritioncare.org/NOVEL.
 
Video translation and pocket cards were made possible through a grant from Cardinal Health.
