In NICU the nurse who feeds and takes care of the baby regulates and looks for the NG tube when necessary , also at the time of delivery the NG aspiration is done by the nurse.

We check NGT/OGT aspirate prior to EACH feeding. 1-4 ml is returned to lower incidence of wasting electrolytes, "discolored" aspirate is discarded.
