Adapting available equipment

13/06/2018

 To clear secretions in patient’s mouth in a resource-constrained area. I use a 60 ml syringe and a naso-gastric tube of different size, according to the age of the patient. I insert the tube in the patients mouth as far as i can see. I then attach a 60ml sryinge to the tube and was able to withdraw out secretions. This is done periodically to maintain a patent airway for critically ill patients
