Research Corner: GE Reflux and NG Tubes in Infants

Take a look at this article hot off the press. Click on secure link below.

Am J Perinatol 2017 (Nov 30 epub)

Findings: The presence of a 5-French NG tube is not associated with an increase in GER or acid exposure in preterm infants. In fact, it appears that infants fed through an NG tube have fewer episodes of GER.

This is surprising to me, and brings us new information to inform our practice with infants.

Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
