Summary of "Modified-Bolus Placement as a Therapeutic Tool in the Treatment of Pediatric Feeding Disorders: Analysis From a Retrospective Chart Review."

Purpose Recognizing the need to advance the treatment of pediatric feeding disorders, an emerging area of inquiry focuses on therapeutic techniques that address expulsion and packing possibly associated with oral-motor dysfunction. In the current study, we documented the use of modified-bolus placement in the treatment of pediatric feeding disorders at an intensive, multidisciplinary day-treatment center over a 26-month period. Method The retrospective observational cohort study involved patients admitted for the assessment and treatment of chronic food refusal from August 2013 to October 2015. Results Patients (n = 23) who received modified bolus placement displayed moderate-to-severe oral-motor deficits. Use of modified-bolus placement was associated with reduced expulsion and packing of bites during meals, and treatment gains coincided with a threefold increase in grams consumed per meal. Conclusion Results provide additional support for the potential therapeutic benefits of enhancing bolus placement onto the tongue as a means to improve mealtime performance in children with pediatric feeding disorders when included as an adjunct to more traditional behavioral approaches.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Registered nurses with graduate degrees in nursing who provide care to pediatric patients who are acutely or critically ill.

Nutritional support given via the alimentary canal or any route connected to the gastrointestinal system (i.e., the enteral route). This includes oral feeding, sip feeding, and tube feeding using nasogastric, gastrostomy, and jejunostomy tubes.

A therapeutic treatment typically involving INTRA-ARTICULAR INJECTIONS of HYALURONIC ACID and related compounds. The procedure is commonly used in the treatment of OSTEOARTHRITIS with the therapeutic goal to restore the viscoelasticity of SYNOVIAL FLUID, decrease pain, improve mobility and restore the natural protective functions of hyaluronan in the joint.
