has demonstrated that gastric residual volume of up to 500ml could be well tolerated and did not increase the incidence of ventilator associated pneumonia.
Patients often fast for prolonged periods before procedures, and the traditional marker of gastric residual volume is outdated and unreliable.
15] The nursing subgroup had an undue reliance on gastric residual volumes as a method of checking feed tolerance, unsupported by the literature, [1] and there was a low compliance with methods to optimise enteral feeding delivery.
Few studies have been done on the effect of ginger extract on the gastric residual volume in gastrointestinal tract in patients fed with tubes therefore this study has been done with the purpose of determining the effect of ginger extract on gastric residual volume in mechanically ventilated patients in the Intensive Care Unit.
Current recommendations for general practice in tube-fed patients include routine checking of gastric residual volume every 4 to 6 hours and withholding of feeding for 1 hour if gastric residual volume is more than 1 to 1.
Nevertheless, gastric residual volume, as possibly the single most widely used crude indicator of retained gastric contents, does correlate with low energy intake.
Gastric residual volume and aspiration in critically iii patients receiving gastric feedings.
gastric residual volume assessment be used together with clinical assessment to minimize the risk for aspiration, with gastric residual volumes > 500 ml indicating the need to withhold feedings and to reassess tolerance, and gastric residual volumes in the range of 200 to 500 ml prompting careful bedside evaluation and initiation of methods to reduce risk; even though residual volumes < 200 ml seem to be well tolerated, there should be ongoing evaluation of risk.
Monitoring gastric residual volume to assess tube feeding tolerance is another time-honored tradition that is unsupported by research.
First, the recommendations for frequency of gastric residual volume (RV) checks vary greatly (see Table 2).
