nasoduodenal tube

nasoduodenal tube

(nā″zō-dū-ă-dē′năl, -doo) (nā″zō-dū-ŏd′ĕ-năl, -doo)
A flexible tube of silicone or a similar synthetic material, inserted through the nose into the duodenum for short-term enteral feeding. The small weight on the distal end of the tube moves the tube into place through the stomach into the duodenum. Aspiration is less likely than with a nasogastric tube.
