4. Enteral Feeding Service
- Enteral feeding is also known as tube feeding. It’s a way of delivering nutrition directly to your mouth, oesophagus, stomach and/ small intestine.
- Enteral feeding may become necessary when you can’t eat enough calories to meet your nutrition needs or if you physically can’t eat due to various conditions leading to malnourishment, weight loss and very serious health issues.
Some of the conditions that can contribute to enteral feeding are:
- Cancers (neck, throat, stomach, intestine)
- Stroke and paralysis
- Other Neurological and muscular disorders like MS, Cerebral Palsy etc.
- Critical injury to vital organs.
- GI dysfunctions like Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, bowel obstruction
Types of Enteral feeding include:
- Nasogastric tube (NGT) starts in the nose and ends in the stomach.
- Nasoenteric tube starts in the nose and ends in the intestines (subtypes include nasojejunal and nasoduodenal tubes e.g NJT).
- Oroenteric tube starts in the mouth and ends in the intestines.
- Gastrostomy tube is placed through the skin of the abdomen straight to the stomach (subtypes include PEG, PRG, and button tubes).
