What is a Levin Tube?
A Levin tube is very simple in design and one of the most common NG tubes used in the healthcare world. It is a type of nasogastric tubing that is made up of a single tube (called a lumen). Some other stomach tubes are dual lumen tubes, like Salem Sump tubes – one is used for drainage, while the other smaller lumen is open to the atmosphere. This allows for continuous suction capabilities. The Levin NG tube is also used for suction, but not as continuous as the Sump tubes.
