NG Feeding 
What is NG Feeding?
NG feeding stands for Nasogastric feeding. It is a medical procedure where a thin, flexible tube is passed through the nose, down the throat, and into the stomach. This tube is used to deliver nutrition, fluids and medication directly into the stomach when a person is unable to eat or swallow normally. 
Why is NG Feeding Used?
NG Feeding is commonly used in patients who cannot take sufficient nutrition orally due to various medical conditions such as severe illnesses, surgery recovery, neurological disorders, or swallowing difficulties. The procedure is typically performed by trained medical professionals, and the tube is secured in place to avoid accidental dislodgment.

PEG Feeding
What is PEG Feeding?
PEG feeding, also known as Percutaneous Endoscopic Gastrostomy, is a medical procedure used to provide nutrition, fluids and medications directly to the stomach in patients who are unable to eat or swallow normally. it involves the insertion of a feeding tube into the stomach through the abdominal wall.
Why is PEG Feeding Used?
PEG feeding is often used for patients who require long-term nutritional support due to conditions that make oral feeding difficult or unsafe. These conditions may include neurological disorders, head and neck cancers, severe swallowing difficulties, or other medical conditions that prevent normal food intake.

Oral Suction
What is Oral Suction?
Oral suction, also known as oral suctioning or oral suction catheterisation is a medical procedure used to remove secretions, mucus, or other fluids from a person's mouth and upper airway. The procedure involved using a sterile suction catheter, which is a flexible tube with a small, rounded tip, to gently suction out any excess secretions or fluids.

Why is Oral Suction Used?
Oral suction is essential for maintaining a clear airway, especially in patients who are unable to cough or expectorate effectively. By removing these secretions, the risk of aspiration (inhaling fluids or debris into the lungs) is reduced, and the patient's breathing and oxygenation can be improved.
What are Nebulisers?
Nebulisers are medical devices used to deliver medication in the form of a fine mist directly into the lungs. They are especially useful doe patients who have difficulty using inhalers or require larger doses of medication.

Why are Nebulisers Used?
They are commonly used to treat respiratory conditions such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and other respiratory disorders. Nebulisers are especially beneficial for young children, elderly individuals, and patients with severe respiratory issues who may have difficulty using inhalers properly. They are also commonly used in hospitals and home settings for regular or emergency respiratory treatments.
