  Tube Feeding
Feeding tubes may be inserted through the nasal passageway for short-term use, but for those patients who require longer use of the tube, it is customary to place the tube directly into the stomach through the abdominal wall.
PEG tubes are placed with the aid of an endoscope, the scope going down the throat to assist in guiding the placement of the tube through the wall of the stomach.
After the tube is placed, a registered dietitian or a nurse who specializes in nutrition should assess the patient to determine their nutritional needs, the amount of calories, protein, and fluids that will be necessary, as well as the most appropriate nutritional formula and how much of that formula will be needed each day.

However, tubes are still used in several specialised applications such as audio systems and high power RF transmitters, as a display device in television sets, and to generate microwaves in microwave ovens.
Cathodes in small "receiving" tubes are coated with a mixture of barium oxide and strontium oxide, sometimes with addition of calcium oxide or aluminium oxide.
Tubes are also considered by many people in the audiophile, professional audio, and musician communities to have superior audio characteristics over transistor electronics, due to their warmer, more natural tone.

 Innovations: How Do They Do That? Making Copper Plumbing Tube
Stationary mandrels are used for relatively short lengths of tube that are drawn on linear drawbenches.) As the tube is drawn onto the spinning bull block, the mandrel and die act together to reduce both the tube's outside diameter and its wall thickness.
Tube that is to be sold in straight lengths is passed through a series of straightening rolls that are arranged in a slight zigzag pattern.
Tube that is to be sold in the soft condition, generally as coils, is next passed through a continuous annealing furnace operating at 1300°F (704°C).

 Indiana Tube Corporation - Tube Production Process
Indiana Tube Corporation currently has five tube mills, two of which are welding tube at approximately 0.500” (12.7mm) outside diameter, two at approximately 0.750” (19.05mm) outside diameter and the fifth is welding the tube to the manufactured tube size.
The fifth tube mill is producing the tube to the correct size (welding to size) and the finished tube is sent through a series of rolls only to insure the finished tube is of the correct OD and within tolerance.
During normal tube production this magnetic field does not fluctuate, however, should a defect present itself, a fluctuation in the magnetic field will occur causing an alarm to sound and the tube to be marked within the area of the defect.

Tube amplifier watts are said to be "bigger", in that under extreme conditions a given musical passage will sound better on a tube amplifier than on a solid state amp of the same wattage.
Tubes (what the speakers of British English call "valves") were for an extended period were the only economical means of amplifying analog electrical signals (and thus useful in radios and high fidelity amplifiers).
Tubes in the 299C are four 12AX7 dual triodes (for phono amp and tone control), two 6BL6 triode/pentode combo used for output driver and inverter, and four 7189 power amps in push-pull, for a total of 11 tubes.

 End-of-Life Options: Tube Feeding
The process of NG tube insertion can be quite uncomfortable, and even painful, especially when the tube hits the upper portion of the nasal cavity (when the individual doing the insertion must force the tube to make the downward turn toward the throat).
Even after the tube has been placed, it can be irritating and frightening to the demented patient, forcing care givers to put the patient's hands in mittens which are tied to the sides of the bed or chair, to prevent them from tampering with the tube.
The placement of NG tubes is often considered part of routine care that is consented to on admission.

Sometimes, if the patient has a large-bore NG tube in place, it may be used initially for enteral feedings, but he should be switched to a small-bore tube as soon as possible to decrease the risk of complications and for comfort.
Nasointestinal tubes are longer than NG tubes and are indicated to medically treat an obstruction of the small intestine in someone who's a very poor surgical risk.
Older nasointestinal tubes with a mercury-filled balloon at the distal end include the single-lumen Cantor tube with a suction port in the lumen and the Miller-Abbott tube with one lumen for adding mercury to weight the tube and one for drainage.

Conditions where tube feeding is considered include protein-energy malnutrition, liver or kidney failure, coma, or in patients who cannot chew or swallow (dysphagia) due to stroke, brain tumor, or head injury.
Tube feedings can be a mixture of regular foods that are blended with liquid to make a consistency that will pass through the tube.

 Myringtomy, from the Bobby R. Alford Department of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery
The eustachian tube connects the back of the throat behind the nose with the middle ear and allows to enter the middle ear so that the ear may function normally.
In children, the eustachian tube does not always mature to the level of normal function at the same rate and may not work as efficiently as in adults for considerable periods of time.
The adenoid are located near the nasal opening of the eustachian tube and may prevent normal functioning of the tube due to inflammatory reactions.

 AllRefer.com - Crookes tube (Physics) - Encyclopedia
Crookes tube, device invented by Sir William Crookes (c.1875) consisting essentially of a sealed glass tube from which nearly all the air has been removed and through the walls of which are passed two electrodes.
When a high voltage is applied between the two electrodes, electrons are emitted from the cathode and are accelerated toward the anode.
The Crookes tube was used by Crookes in a number of experiments and was later used in experiments leading to the discovery of X rays by W. Roentgen (1895) and of the electron by J. Thomson (1897).

THE TUBE is targeted to an audience with attitude, not to a specific demographic.  Research from the latest Billboard charts indicates that THE TUBE has the strongest appeal among the 30+ age group, but its novel music format suggests that THE TUBE skews toward a younger audience as well.
THE TUBE is the first entertainment network to be distributed using a new broadcast technology known as digital multicasting.
One of the key incentives offered by The Tube to attract broadcasters to fill their multicast needs with the TUBE is a very lucrative revenue opportunity relationship - most notably the offer of 15% of net advertising revenue for broadcasters who carry THE TUBE, which is embedded in the proposed agreements.

A tube cage is standard equipment, and while it isn't exactly attractive, leaving it in place doesn't mar the look of the preamp, because the faceplate hides it from the front.
The Tube's soundstage radiates around and behind the speakers, but its forward-most plane is closer to the listener than that of other preamps I've had in my system over the past several years.
The Tube is the alpha male of line-stage preamps, but even with all of this talk of immediacy and power, it doesn't miss the little things.
