Does It Still Feel Nauseous After The NGT Hose Has Been Removed?
hello, my father was treated using an NGT tube to secrete black fluid in the stomach. and fasting 2×24 hours, and now the fluid that comes out is normal. after the hose is removed whether it will still nauseous, or return to normal as usual ,. thanks please explain?
Good evening, thanks for the question
The black fluid in the stomach that is seen from the NGT tube is caused by a condition of stress ulcers in the gastric wall mucosa. Ulcers can occur in mucosal tissue in the mouth, stomach, or esophagus. The affected area will become irritated and inflamed, causing deep sores or ulcers in the gastric mucosa. Ulcers are at risk of bleeding so in these conditions monitoring is necessary by installing an NGT tube and administering intravenous drugs.
Some of the initial medical conditions that cause stress ulcers include:
1. Severe illness with long-term treatment in hospital
2. Postoperative procedures
3. Injury to the brain
5. Serious burns
Black NGT production needs to be temporarily fasted so as not to aggravate the gastrointestinal tract. If the NGT is clearly monitored then it indicates that the bleeding has stopped, for that direct feeding can begin gradually and the NGT interval can be removed.
In these conditions the gastric mucosa is still healing, so that mild symptoms may still be felt like nausea or heartburn. It is natural that the administration of gastric medication will be carried out in the long term for several weeks to facilitate complete healing.
That's all, hope you can help
