Routine post procedure CXR on ICU. Describe and interpret the CXR
Describe and interpret this CXR
CHEST X-RAY INTERPRETATION
The nasogastric tube (NGT) passes into the trachea and then left main bronchus, it then loops around and crosses into the right main bronchus, where it again loops on itself.
Tracheostostomy tube in situ.
This NG tube needs removal, and another attempt at finding the oesophagus, followed by stomach.
This CXR is why you have been asked to review so many post NG tube CXR’s, and why you will continue to order them.
