Abstract

To investigate whether a nasogastric tube predisposes to gastroesophageal reflux, 16 preterm infants underwent 48-hour recordings of multiple intraluminal impedance with the catheter tip in the lower esophagus or stomach for 24 hours each. There were 72 (range, 40-145) reflux episodes with the esophageal placement and 122 (range, 60-147) during the gastric position (P <.01).
