Should gastric aspirate be discarded or retained when gastric residual volume is removed from gastric tubes?
MetadataShow full item record
Summary: Nursing care of patients with enteral feeding tubes is common in the intensive care unit but the evidence that surrounds the practice is limited. Recent research by Juve-Udina and colleagues (2010) "To return or to discard? Randomised trial on gastric residual volume management" compares two methods of managing gastric residual volume. This critique provides a brief summary of their research and critically appraises the paper. The implications for nursing practice are discussed.

Stomach-specific activation of oncogenic KRAS and STAT3-dependent inflammation cooperatively promote gastric tumorigenesis in a preclinical modelThiem, S.; Eissmann, M.; Elzer, J.; Jonas, A.; Putoczki, T.; Poh, A.; Nguyen, P.; Preaudet, A.; Flanagan, D.; Vincan, Elizabeth; Waring, P.; Buchert, M.; Jarnicki, A.; Ernst, M. (2016)About 5% to 10% of human gastric tumors harbor oncogenic mutations in the KRAS pathway, but their presence alone is often insufficient for inducing gastric tumorigenesis, suggesting a requirement for additional mutagenic ...
