Abstract

Oxygen saturations were compared, 10 min before and 10, 20 and 30 min after orogastric and nasogastric feeds, in 10 stable newborns. The mean saturations were significantly lower with mere passage of nasogastric tube and continued to be so during feeds. There was no difficulty in securing the orogastric tube and no baby aspirated milk.
