Our instructors have chosen to use Elsevier books Evolve Learning System online modules a part of our curriculum. You may remember the gem from a day or two ago regarding making sure not to trap breasts in the gait belt when transferring patients. I'm finding enough hilarious quotes that this may become a regular feature on my blog.
In reference to ensuring the proper placement of NG tubes, the module states:
"Upon completion of this lesson, you will be able to identify signs and symptoms of accidental respiratory migration of feeding tube."
Apparently feeding tubes head South for the winter?
