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.

Influence of Feeding Direct-fed Microbial Supplementation on Growth Performance and Feeding Behavior in Naturally- and Conventionally-fed Finishing Cattle with Different Dietary Adaptation Periods.

To determine the effects of finishing system (conventional vs. natural), dietary adaptation length (14 vs. 28 d) and direct-fed microbial (DFM) supplementation (no DFM vs. DFM) on growth performance a...

Effects of Pacifier Use on Transition Time from Gavage to Breastfeeding in Preterm Infants: A Randomized Controlled Trial.

Nonnutritive sucking (NNS) has been identified as having many benefits for preterm infants. NNS may improve the efficacy of oral feeding, reduce the length of time spent in orogastric (OG) tube feedin...

Evaluation of three different patterns of feed intake during early lactation in lactating sows.

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.
