Gastroview via feeding tubes

Hi everyone,
Given the warning for diatrizoate (Gastroview) for risk of severe outcome when this medication is aspirated, do any facilities have any special precautions for patients who are high risk for aspiration? In particular, when Gastroview is administered via an enteral tube, do you have limitations on the rate and/or volume of medication to be administered?
