Background: Tube feeding had been found to be a cause of aspiration pneumonia. Continuous pump feeding at slower rates as compared to bolus feeding may be less associated with aspiration ...
This study is conducted in order to validate the functionality and accuracy of the smART™ System in a real-life ICU setting. The smART™ Feeding Tube System is a novel system with nasog...
Numerous elderly patients are suffering from aspiration pneumonia due to anatomical or functional predisposing factors including enteral tube feeding, swallowing difficulties, and gastroes...
Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) is a minimally invasive procedure for long-term enteral tube feeding in patients with insufficient oral intake. Although peristomal site infection...
The primary purpose of the trial is to compare the efficacy and safety of two measures which claim to prevent early-onset ventilator-associated pneumonia.
'Risk feeding' policies, for when people continue to eat and drink despite a perceived risk of choking or aspiration have become common in recent years. We argue that 'feeding' is demeaning language i...
Patients with functional gastrointestinal tract who are unable to meet their nutritional requirements may benefit from the use of enteral nutrition via feeding tubes which could be nasogastric, percut...
Although stroke is one of the most common causes of dysphagia, no studies have investigated the radionuclide salivagram as a predictor of aspiration pneumonia in patients with stroke. In addition, few...
With the increasing survival rate of people with developmental disabilities into adulthood and later life, nutritional support and feeding of these individuals frequently becomes a critical problem wh...
Aspiration pneumonia refers to an infection of the lung parenchyma in an individual that has inhaled a bolus of endogenous flora that overwhelms the natural defenses of the respiratory system. While t...
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 condition caused by inhalation of MECONIUM into the LUNG of FETUS or NEWBORN, usually due to vigorous respiratory movements during difficult PARTURITION or respiratory system abnormalities. Meconium aspirate may block small airways leading to difficulties in PULMONARY GAS EXCHANGE and ASPIRATION PNEUMONIA.
A type of lung inflammation resulting from the aspiration of food, liquid, or gastric contents into the upper RESPIRATORY TRACT.
Pneumonia due to aspiration or inhalation of various oily or fatty substances.
Breathing in liquid or solids, such as stomach contents, into the RESPIRATORY TRACT. When this causes severe lung damage, it is called ASPIRATION PNEUMONIA.
