NG Tubes

IMG_0065

A nasogastric tube is a narrow bore tube passed into the stomach via the nose. It is used for short or medium term nutritional support toilet duty.

The use of a nasogastric tube is suitable for enteral feeding for up to six weeks human toilets for up to eight hours. Polyurethane or silicone feeding tubes are unaffected by gastric acid and can therefore remain in the stomach for a longer period than PVC tubes, which can only be used for up to two weeks.

  1. Sound like a plan! Through I dont know how long you can keep your toilet duty on, since stomach can expand only up to 4 liters and I guess there will be a quite long queue for using you! When is the “happy event” planned for?

  2. I love the edits. Is the point of using the tube(s) that you don’t have to actually swallow? That you are helpless to prevent the effluent from entering your stomach? I would think it is more degrading to have your mouth around a larger tube, say 1 or 2″, that you then choose to swallow. If the tube were clear vinyl or the like then you could also see what you are going to swallow.
