the NOVEL Project released two new
resources for pediatric nasogastric (NG) tube placement and verification.
Spanish Instructional Videos
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.
