An audit of 27 ventilated patients who underwent percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) in ICU revealed that this procedure could be safely performed in the ICU under local anesthesia. None of the patients had any hemodynamic or respiratory complications. All of them could be started on enteral feeds on the following day. PEG done in the ICU avoids the complications of transportation to the operation theater and general anesthesia.
