Reservists expand medical knowledge at NMCSD
940th Aerospace Medicine Squadron Reservist Staff Sgt. Elizabeth Fox places a nasograstric tube in a training mannequin’s nose at the Naval Medical Center San Diego. A nasogastric tube is a flexible tube with a rounded end that is commonly used to remove or add substances to the stomach. Training at the NMCSD for two weeks offered the reservists a chance to expand their capabilities and learn to work in a joint environment. The NMCSD is a full scale hospital that treats more than 100,000 patients and has notable clinical and research programs. (U.S. Air Force photo by Tech. Sgt. Kenneth McCann/Released)
