Enteral Feeding Study of Formula Containing Fish Oil in Critical Care Setting

2014-08-27 03:40:41 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the clinical applicability of an enteral tube feeding formula containing fish oil and prebiotics in a critical care population.

Description

In terms of nutrition support in the acute care setting, it is generally accepted that

1. earlier is better

2. enteral is superior to parenteral

3. the quality of nutrients appears more important than quantity

4. select populations will show additional benefit from specific nutrient supplementation.

The current study is designed to evaluate the tolerance of an enteral formula in trauma and surgery patients, as demonstrated by achieving and maintaining enteral feeding goal, gastrointestinal tolerance and inflammatory markers.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Use of nursing bottles for feeding. Applies to humans and animals.

A tube of ectodermal tissue in an embryo that will give rise to the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM, including the SPINAL CORD and the BRAIN. Lumen within the neural tube is called neural canal which gives rise to the central canal of the spinal cord and the ventricles of the brain. For malformation of the neural tube, see NEURAL TUBE DEFECTS.

Behavioral responses or sequences associated with eating including modes of feeding, rhythmic patterns of eating, and time intervals.
