2 1.0 Who should read this document? 1.1 Medical staff who will assess and consider the patients indication and suitability for a nasal bridle referral. Staff who insert and manage nasogastric tubes for enteral feeding or gastric drainage. Staff who insert or manage nasojejunal tubes for enteral feeding. Staff who insert or manage nasal bridles. 2.0 Key Practice Points 2.1 The use of the nasal bridle does not remove the requirement for the routine tube insertion and placement checks, and the EPR documentation prior to and during use of the tube. 2.2 If an NG tube is accidentally displaced 3 times then patients can be considered for insertion of a nasal bridle. 2.3 Nasal bridles are to be used as nasal tube retention device and not as a restraint. For any patient actively pulling out nasal enteral tubes a bridle should not be considered; ongoing management should be discussed with the multidisciplinary team, and should include consideration of 1-1 nursing and the use of posy mitts 2.4 It is recommended that all nasojejunal tubes and non-bedside placement NG tubes are secured where possible with a nasal bridle to minimise the risk of removal/ displacement; therefore reducing subsequent reinsertions requiring radiology/ endoscopy procedures. 2.5 Nasal bridles may also be used for patients with nasogastric tubes inserted for drainage where it is essential in minimising the risk of removal eg: to protect an anastomosis post surgery. 2.6 The nasal bridles will only be inserted by appropriately trained staff after referral from the medical team and assessment that the patient is suitable for the use of this device. 2.7 Contraindications to a nasal bridle: 1. Nasal airway obstruction & abnormalities. 2. Facial and/or anterior cranial fractures 3. Basilar skull fractures 4. Patients that may pull on the device to such a degree as to cause serious injury Page 2 of 15

3 3.0 Background Adequate nutrition in patients is known to be important in improving recovery and reducing length of stay. The Trust expects that staff will work to optimise nutrition for all patients while respecting the right of the person to make decisions about their treatment. The NPSA reports on nasogastric tubes in 2005 and 2011 highlighted the risks of tube insertion and misplacement. The use of a nasal bridle can reduce the need for repeated insertions of nasogastric (NG) / nasojejunal tubes (NJ) (Scott et al, 2009) 4.0 What is new in this version? 4.1 Information on bridle use as a retention device not as a restraint. 5.0 Policy Referral for endoscopic or radiological insertion of nasal enteral tubes should include a request for a nasal bridle. Revised EPR care plan. 5.1 In all patients requiring NG / NJ tube feeding staff will work to increase the chances of the tubes being tolerated by clear explanation, reassurance and in stroke patients where appropriate by inserting the tube on the side of hemi sensory neglect. If an NG tube is accidentally displaced 3 times then patients can be considered for insertion of a nasal bridle. 5.2 An assessment of mental capacity will be made. If the patient has capacity to consent then the bridle will only be used with that consent. If the patient does not have capacity to make decisions around the use of the bridle, or a bridle is to be inserted intra-operatively then a decision will be made in their best interests in consultation with all interested parties as per the Mental Capacity Act Capacity assessment and best interest documentation is to be completed according to Trust policy. 5.3 Nasal bridles are designed to be used as a nasal tube retention device and not as a restraint. Any patient actively pulling out nasal enteral tubes with a bridle inserted is at risk of: Aspiration (if the tube is pulled through the bridle clip whilst enteral feeding is in progress and is malpositioned from the jejunum/ stomach) amage to the nasal septum/ columnella Page 3 of 15

4 For these patients a bridle should not be considered; ongoing management should be discussed with the multi-disciplinary team, and should include consideration of 1-1 nursing and the use of posy mitts. 5.4 Using a small magnet on a flexible rod, a tape is passed behind the nasal septum and fixed to the tube by a clip, preventing the NG / NJ tube from being removed/ dislodged accidentally. 5.5 It is recommended that all nasojejunal tubes and non-bedside placement NG tubes are secured where possible with a nasal bridle to minimise the risk of removal / displacement; therefore reducing subsequent reinsertions requiring radiology / endoscopy procedures. The insertion of a nasal bridle must be requested on the referral for the tube insertion. A nasal bridle should be provided with the patient at the time of the initial procedure along with the tube and the bridle can be placed at the time of the tube insertion. 5.6 Nasal bridles may also be used for patients with nasogastric tubes inserted for drainage where it is essential in minimising the risk of removal eg: to protect an anastomosis post surgery. The nasal bridle may be inserted by the anaesthetist at the time of the procedure. 5.7 The use of the nasal bridle does not remove the requirement for the routine tube insertion and placement checks, and the EPR documentation prior to and during use of the tube. These must continue to be completed as per the Trust nasogastric feeding/ nasojejunal feeding policy. 5.8 Contraindications to a nasal bridle: 1. Nasal airway obstruction & abnormalities. 2. Facial and/or anterior cranial fractures 3. Basilar skull fractures 4. Patients that may pull on the device to such a degree as to cause serious injury 6.0 Standards 6.1 Procedure for insertion of the nasal bridle: Nasal bridles should only be inserted by a competent practitioner who has received training in the insertion and management of the nasal bridle. 1. First ensure that the decision to use the nasal bridle has been clearly documented by the medical team on EPR. 2. Ensure the NG / NJ tube has been inserted, and if possible the position of the tube confirmed as per Trust protocol (if the Page 4 of 15

5 position has not yet been confirmed, the nasal bridle can be inserted to secure the tube and the position changed by repositioning of the tube and clip if required the tube must not be used to administer any feed, fluids or medication until the tube position has been confirmed. 3. Note the cm marking at the nose of the inserted tube. 4. Explain the nasal bridle and procedure to the patient, and agree on a stop sign 5. Using a clean procedure, wear apron and gloves - open the nasal bridle pack (ensure the bridle is the correct size for the inserted tube). 6. Lubricate both of the probes and tape with lubricating gel, and place the first probe of the insertion kit into the nostril to the marked ridge. 7. Place the second probe of the insertion kit into the other nostril. There should be an audible click as the magnets attach- if not then gently manipulate the probes. 8. Remove the guide wire. 9. Gently pull on the 1 st probe to pull the 2 nd probe and the attached tape around the septum. The patient should have equal lengths of tape from each nostril. 10. Cut the tape to remove the insertion probe. 11. Ensure that the NG / NJ tube is correctly positioned. Place the NG / NJ tube and one length of tape into the channel on the clip and then clip it tightly shut. 12. Tie a double knot in the tape just distal to the clip. Trim off any excess tape with the scissors. 13. Securely fix the NG tube to the patient s cheek bone using adhesive plaster to prevent the extra weight of the bridle from pulling on the tape. 14. Clear away all equipment and dispose of as per Trust policy. 15. ocument in the nasal bridle care plan and on EPR that the bridle has been inserted, any difficulties or complications and any epistaxis related to the procedure. Complete the NG / NJ tube care plan as usual. 6.2 Care of the nasal bridle: The insertion and use of the nasal bridle should be documented on EPR and on the EPR Nasal Bridle care plan (Appendix 3) The tape can be gently wiped with a damp disposable cloth to prevent the build up of nasal secretions - the tape must not be removed for cleaning- this would require cutting the tape and therefore necessitate passing a new bridle. If discomfort is experienced around the nares then lubricant aqueous gel can be applied. Page 5 of 15

6 The bridle tapes and columnella should be checked at least twice per day and documented in the nursing evaluation on EPR for signs of the bridle tapes twisting or any pressure damage to the columnella (see manufacturers post insertion care sheet, Appendix 3) 6.3 Removal of the nasal bridle: If the patient has previously consented to the bridle and then withdraws consent, or if the patient becomes distressed by the bridle then it MUST be removed whether the bridle has been assessed as being in the patient s best interest or not. If epistaxis occurs then medical advice should be sought about the continued use of the bridle. If the patient continues to pull on the NG/ NJ tube despite the use of the nasal bridle then it should be removed. The bridle is placed to prevent the NG/ NJ tube from being accidentally removed, not to prevent the patient from deliberately removing it. The bridle may also be removed when the patient no longer requires the NG/ NJ tube. To remove the bridle, simply cut the tape with scissors and remove as with any NG/ NJ tube. On removal of the nasal bridle the EPR care plan should be edited with the removal details and then discontinued. 6.4 Any patient being discharged with a nasal bridle MUST be given a copy of the discharge post insertion care sheet (Appendix 3) for reference. 7.0 Explanation of terms NG Tube nasogastric tube NJ Tube nasojejunal tube EPR Electronic patient record 8.0 References and Supporting ocuments 1.
