Dr. Church presents Gastric Drains and Tubes
This course was designed because as medical procedures and surgeries continue to evolve with evidence-based practices, nurses require continuing education for the patient populations they are caring for. Nursing staff in PACU and SDS desire education on current practices for gastric drains and tubes including refeeding and signs of distress.
After completing this activity, the learner will be able to:
- identify the different types of gastric drains and tubes
- state the signs and symptoms of distress upon refeeding patients
