NGT are generally used in the short (one week) to medium term (up to six weeks) or for longer term feeding, which occurs via gastrostomy tubes or jejunostomies. There is a small risk that nasogastric feeding tubes can be misplaced in the lungs during insertion, or can be misplaced out of the stomach at a later stage. NGT Insertion
