Gastric Lavage

Gastric lavage, also known as stomach pumping, is a specialized medical procedure involving the removal of substances that may have been ingested from the stomach. It is performed by inserting a tube through the mouth or nose and into the stomach and then using a special solution to wash out the contents. This procedure is typically used for emergency situations such as drug overdose, poisoning, or as a means to obtain a sample of stomach contents for diagnostic purposes. It requires specialized training and should only be performed by a healthcare professional with the proper knowledge and expertise.
