Re: DS getting ear tubes tomorrow at 10 am - NPO after midnight?!

Hope it goes well for you! Tubes made a world of difference for my son.

With my son, they told me that they needed to intubate him for the procedure (I was hoping for a LMA, but that's an RT thing...). The procedure only took about 10 or 15 minutes. People can vomit if they have something in their stomache when they get intubated. An aspiration pneumonia is much more difficult to recover from than just the tubes.
