Preterm Neonatal Feeding Protocol Comparing Feed Administration Time

2014-08-27 03:18:34 | BioPortfolio


Doctors have tried many different methods of feeding to try to decrease feeding intolerance in preterm babies so that they spend less time receiving liquid nutrition and have fewer problems with feeding intolerance.

The purpose of this study is to test two different methods of feeding preterm babies in the hopes of identifying a method that will decrease some of the feeding intolerance that can occur when feeding premature babies.

Short communication: The diurnal intake and behavior of dairy cows when access to a feed of consistent nutritive value is restricted.

The diurnal variation in pasture nutritive value adds a confounding factor to studies elucidating the effect of time of day on behavior. Our work separates the effect of time of day on both feeding an...

Short communication: The effects of morning compared with evening feed delivery in lactating dairy cows during the summer.

Delivering fresh feed in the evening is a management strategy sometimes used during periods of heat stress, but previous experiments have observed that night feeding increased feed intake during the 2...

Mitigation of variability between competitively fed dairy cows through increased feed delivery frequency.

The objective of this study was to determine whether increased frequency of total mixed ration (TMR) delivery could mitigate the effects of feed bunk competition on the behavior and productivity of in...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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

Administration of low doses of a drug or a drug combination over prolonged periods of time usually at a regular interval.

Time schedule for administration of a drug in order to achieve optimum effectiveness and convenience.

A condition of metabolic imbalance that is caused by complications of initially feeding a severely malnourished patient too aggressively. Usually occurring within the first 5 days of refeeding, this syndrome is characterized by WATER-ELECTROLYTE IMBALANCE; GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE; CARDIAC ARRHYTHMIAS; and DIARRHEA.

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.
