The NG tube passes through the right main bronchus and into the right lung and likely the right pleural space. There is an associated right pneumothorax of moderate size. No mediastinal shift evident.
Left PICC tip is projected in the upper SVC. Tracheostomy tube well positioned.
Good example of one possible consequence of a malpositioned NG tube.
