The nasogastric tube is a flexible silicone tube that is inserted through a nostril into the stomach for feeding and decompression purposes. The tube is placed by a doctor or nurse and is suitable for short- or medium-term use. Prolonged use can cause unpleasant side effects and mucosal injuries. There are two main types of nasogastric tube: the single-lumen nasogastric tube, known as the Levin tube, and the double-lumen nasogastric tube, known as the Salem tube. These two types of nasogastric tubes differ in features such as diameter, maximum length, and clinical indications. The end of the probe, which comes out of the nose, has one or more pathways for inserting nutritional solutions and medications. The opposite end has a rounded tip so as not to traumatize the tissues.
