Dilated Fluid-filled Stomach on Gastric POCUS

Abd pain+vomiting+peritonitis -> Massively dilated stomach on #POCUS. NG tube placed with >1L of contents. CT noted to have aspiration pna in the lower lung fields. My pearl: Dilated stomach and patient hasn't eaten in several hours? Do a diagnostic/therapeutic NG
