Nurses who recently visited our Web site answered this question: Which of the following do you use most frequently when confirming correct placement of a nasogastric (NG) tube?
Studies have shown that the auscultatory method is an unreliable way to verify NG tube placement. No single nonradiologic technique has proven reliable, so use more than one. Research has shown that the most helpful bedside techniques are measuring the pH of aspirate and visually assessing aspirate.
