opportunity ( ). NJ/OJ tubes - introduction Jejunal tube feeding is the method of feeding directly into the small bowel. The feeding tube is passed by the nose or mouth into the oesophagus, on into the stomach, through the pylorus and into the duodenum or jejunum. This type of feeding can also be known as duodenal, post-pyloric or trans-pyloric feeding. Some indications for use: absent gag reflex severe gastro oesophageal reflux delayed gastric emptying persistent vomiting ( ) Contraindications: upper GI

64. Recommendations for the Management of Cerebral and Cerebellar Infarction with Swelling

physiological parameters, but early extubation in patients with a decompressive craniectomy for cerebellar infarcts can be problematic because of abnormal oropharyngeal function, lack of strong cough, and copious thick secretions. 90 The presence of a cough and gag reflex and normal eye movements may predict successful extubation. 91 Airway and Mechanical Ventilation: Recommendations 1. Maintaining normocarbia is reasonable (Class IIa; Level of Evidence C). 2. Intubation may be considered for patients (...) infarction, a decrease in level of consciousness occurs as a result of brainstem compression and therefore may include early loss of corneal reflexes and the development of miosis. Standardized definitions should be established to facilitate multicenter and population-based studies of incidence, prevalence, risk factors, and outcomes. Identification of patients at high risk for brain swelling should include clinical and neuroimaging data. If a full resuscitative status is warranted in a patient

65. Sedation for Patients in ICU

.) Underlying lung disease. Ventilator disconnection Prolonged patient inspiratory time. Sedation is a common solution for managing patients who “fight” the ventilator but it may not always be the best answer. Coughing and gagging are very deep reflexes and are used in the brain stem death testing. The presence of a cough reflex should not be used to assess the depth of sedation. If coughing is interfering with ventilation and the patient is already deeply sedated, then muscle relaxants should be considered (...) cooperative and communicative than patients sedated with other drugs in the intensive care setting. Dexmedetomidine depresses the gag reflex and improves endotracheal tube tolerance when compared with other sedatives (87), (88). The cardiovascular effects should not be under emphasised however. Boluses of dexmedetomidine result in a biphasic response; there is an initial peripheral effect causing vasoconstriction resulting in hypertension and a reflex bradycardia and ultimately, a central effect causing

66. Nasopharyngeal airway (NPA)

is to be sized correctly in patients: if the airway is too short it will fail to separate the soft palate from the pharynx and if too long it can pass into the larynx and aggravate cough and gag reflexes ( ). The NPA primarily acts as a 'splint' which maintains patency of the airway, or keeps the tongue from falling back on the posterior pharyngeal wall and occluding the airway, therefore preventing airway obstruction, hypoxia and asphyxia ( ). NPAs are generally well tolerated by conscious children

Observe the swallowing process to check the child or young person's ability to do so, any pain experienced, or pooling/dribbling of secretions. If there are any doubts about the swallow and gag reflex, the child or young person should be referred to a speech and language therapist for further assessment.

68. Efficacy and safety of using premedication with simethicone/Pronase during upper gastrointestinal endoscopy examination with sedation: A single center, prospective, single blinded, randomized controlled trial. (PubMed)

lidocaine hydrochloride mucilage (LHM, N = 314) and premedication used in the intervention group was 80 mL simethicone/Pronase solution plus 10 mL lidocaine hydrochloride mucilage (SP/LHM, N = 296). EGD was done under sedation. Visibility scores, number of mucosal areas that needed cleansing, water consumption for cleansing, time taken for examination, diminutive lesions, pathological diagnosis, patients' gag reflex and oxygenation (pulse oximetry) were recorded.SP/LHM has significantly lower total (...) rate of diagnosis of atrophic gastritis (P = 0.014) and intestinal metaplasia (P = 0.024). There was no significant difference in gag reflex (P = 0.604) and oxygenation during the endoscopy procedure for either group of patients.Routine use of premedication with simethicone/Pronase should be recommended during EGD with sedation.© 2017 Japan Gastroenterological Endoscopy Society.

73. Role of Ultrasound in Laryngeal Lesions

, not all patients can tolerate the laryngoscope especially those with a sensitive gag reflex, patients with limit of jaw or neck mobility or patients suffering from stridor. It is also difficult in most infants and children . Even during laryngoscopy the exact extension of laryngeal tumor, its infiltration and invasion of the laryngeal skeleton can sometimes be hard to assess. Thus, laryngoscopy alone may not be sufficient in some cases to judge the extent of infiltrative processes or measure the exact

lateral sclerosis (ALS) which involves the degeneration of both systems. ALS patients will be gathered in clinical groups according to electromyogram (EMG) and clinical signs observed in the bulbar site. UMN signs are defined as jaw clonus, gag reflex and pseudobulbar features (lability). LMN signs are defined as lingual atrophy and fasciculations. The dysarthria will be compared to dysarthria of patients involving an exclusive UMN system degeneration (in primitive lateral sclerosis) and an exclusive (...) degeneration on one side and LMN degeneration on the other side. The investigators will compare acoustic and perceptual features between the recorded speech of different clinical groups. Clinical groups will be made according to clinical signs and EMG. The clinical signs for UMN involvement in the bulbar region are: gag reflex, jaw clonus, pseudobulbar features (lability). The clinical signs for LMN involvement are: lingual atrophy and fasciculation. The population will be composed by groups of ALS-LMN
