Nicola Credland's Uganda blog - entry 7

Tomorrow I am teaching BLS to anyone who comes to the ICU. The staff have never done this before so it should be great to teach. 
The picture I have attached today is the recipe for naso-gastric feed. The patient’s family provide the ingredients, make and administer this, not the nursing staff.  Mukene are tiny silver fish. All of the ingredients are placed in a bowl and mashed together to make a liquid and then filtered through a strainer before giving it via a NG tube.

  1. Nicky, really enjoying your blogs and pics. Excting, moving and sometimes horrifying in equal measure. Thank you for takin the time to record your views.
