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.
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.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double-Blind, Primary Purpose: Treatment

This study plans to learn more about the safety of early feeding following placement of a feeding tube. Doctors in other specialties feed patients 4 hours after patients receive a feeding ...
The aim of this study is to test the clinical effectiveness of IOE tube using individually customized 3-dimentional printed guiding tube as an alternative to Levin tube feeding when uncons...
In this study, we want to see how feeding affects breathing in small premature babies. Using a special feeding tube in the stomach, we can measure how the diaphragm (a large breathing musc...
The study team will determine whether a decreased feeding tube dwell time will reduce feeding tube contamination
This study conducted in order to validate the functionality and accuracy of the smARTrack™ System in a real-life ICU setting. The smARTrack™ Feeding Tube System is a novel system with ...
Primary: to identify the potential relationship between duration of tube feeding and success of oral feeding in preterm infants; secondary: to identify the potential relationships among duration of tu...
Even though no evidence suggests tube feeding is beneficial for individuals with advanced dementia, many are still tube fed.
For most of human history, physicians used blended whole foods for patients who are unable to eat by mouth. However, by the 1960s and 1970s, advances in enteral nutrition resulted in the gradual displ...
Over 50 % of tape-secured feeding tubes are inadvertently lost. The impact of nasal bridle securement on nasogastric (NG) and nasointestinal (NI) tube loss, outcome and duration of use was determined ...
The objective of this study was to assess the association of analgesics and sedatives on oral feeding function and need for feeding tube at discharge in the very low birth weight (VLBW) (
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.
Food and dietary formulations including elemental (chemically defined formula) diets, synthetic and semisynthetic diets, space diets, weight-reduction formulas, tube-feeding diets, complete liquid diets, and supplemental liquid and solid diets.

Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
