Nasogastric (NG) feeding: Used in IP refeeding generally as a last resort when patient refuses to take sufficient quantities of food orally. The NG tube is inserted through the nose and down through the esophagus. A pouch containing liquid nutrients is then connected to the tube for slow feeding (usually over several hours, sometimes as patient sleeps.). It is usually employed as a supplement, not a replacement, for normal eating.
