Fun Stuff

I got to do my first NG tube the other day at work! (For non-medical people it is a tube that goes in your nose, down to your stomach to relieve pressure and etc.) I had done an oral tube on an intabated pt (patient) a few days prior and that was crazy easy. The lady I put the NG down "wanted" the tube because her stomach hurt so bad. At first she pulled her head back and up but then she cooperated and it went down so smoothly! It was a great first experience on an actual person. :o)
