Nasogastric Tubes (NG Tubes)

Are you or your loved ones struggling with dysphagia, making it challenging to swallow? Our Nasogastric Tube (NGT) services provide essential support for individuals facing difficulties in swallowing due to various conditions such as neurological issues, muscular disorders, congenital conditions, or cancer.

What is a Feeding Tube? A Feeding Tube, also known as a Nasogastric Tube (NGT), serves as a lifeline for patients dealing with dysphagia. This medical device enables the safe and effective delivery of essential nutrition and medications to those unable to swallow properly.

What can be fed through NGT?

Our NGT services cover a comprehensive range of sustenance options, including:

  • Milk feeds, water, juices, and barley water
  • Blended/pureed food for a balanced diet
  • Crushed medication in powder form for accurate dosages
