A nasogastric or orogastric tube inserted through the nose (naso–) or mouth (oro–) of the patient for enteric nutrition normally ends in the duodenum. The physician may take the help of radiological guidance for the placement of the tube. Enteric nutrition is done to patients who cannot take food in the normal way due to disease conditions or trauma.
