- Place an NG tube
- Place an OG tube
- Place a rectal flexi seal
- Have the patient bear down
Placing an NG is the priority because it decompresses the abdomen, also the patient needs to be NPO until the small bowel can be back in working order. OG tubes are not used on patients that are alert and oriented, only really intubated patients. It is contraindicated to have the patient bear down, and a rectal tube wouldn't help.
