Inserted nasogastric tube passes into a left lower lobe bronchus. This should be removed and repositioned. The left IJ CVC remains in situ. There is hazy airspace opacities within bilateral lower zones.
Bronchial positioning of nasogastric tubes is a recognised complication, and is important to recognise and reposition prior to use of the tube.
