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 nasogastric tube developed by ART Healthcare Ltd, based on sensor-lined tubes that transmit real-time information to an external console. The smARTrack™ feeding tube is equipped with reflux sensors which alert when gastric contents regurgitating into the esophagus. In addition, the smARTrack...
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 tube. However, Interventional Radiologists typically wait to feed patients for 24 hours following feeding tube placement. The investigator would like to demonstrate that feeding after 4 hours does not increase complications and can actually reduce the burden to patients who receive a feeding t...

This project is based on a three-year program that aims to improve the knowledge of the socioeconomic consequences of dementia in Norway. By including patients with and without dementia in four different cohorts (from nursing homes, from memory clinics, home-dwelling persons with dementia and elderly persons without dementia), the project's aim is to describe tha course of dementia, the economical cost of dementia and to look into possible risk factors for dementia.
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 unconscious patients have no choice but tube feeding.
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 muscle) might be affected by feeding. We also want to see if slowing down the feeding may lessen this effect.
The study team will determine whether a decreased feeding tube dwell time will reduce feeding tube contamination
The purpose of this study is to find out which method (nasogastric vs. orogastric) of feeding tube for premature infants results in earlier only oral feeding.
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 pneumonia. Methods: Randomized controlled trial Subjects: Patients expected to remain on tube feeding for 4 or more weeks Outcomes: 1) pneumonia, 2) mortality
Palliative and hospice care in advanced dementia: experiences of care givers and benefit of a brochure serving as a decision-making aid Aims: 1. Designing a brochure serving as an information tool and decision-making aid used to answer questions concerning palliative and hospice care for care-givers of persons with advanced dementia. The brochure shall demonstrate the possibilities and offerings of palliative and hospice care and shall serve...
The purpose of this study is to conduct a cross-sectional survey of primary care patients to better understand their perceptions of the risks and benefits of a screen and subsequent diagnostic confirmation of dementia.
This is a multi-centre randomised controlled trial comparing early jejunal feeding (using a frictional nasojejunal [NJ] tube) and standard feeding in critical illness.
During radiation treatment for head and neck cancer a large percentage of patients at Mayo Clinic Rochester develop the need for tube feeding to meet nutrition and hydration needs. These patients are usually taking pain medication along with a stool softener or laxative. Currently, when these patients get a feeding tube it is our standard practice to choose a fiber-free enteral tube feeding formula as to not worsen their constipation. Currently, there are no guidelines as to w...
The purpose of this study is to compare the quality of life (QOL) in head and neck patients who are given the GJ tube (which is placed in the bowel) versus those who are given the G-Tube (which is placed in the stomach) for prophylactic feeding. The standard of care for patients at Princess Margaret Hospital (PMH) is using GJ tubes. Patients who agree to be in the study will be randomized to either the GJ-Tube or the G-Tube arm. Patients randomized to the G-tube will receive pr...
The purpose of the study is to compare two ways (nasogastric tube (NGT) and nasoduodenal tube (NDT)) to provide nutrition to infants admitted to the hospital for viral bronchiolitis and who require high flow nasal cannula therapy.
This study is a randomized trial to test whether a decision aid can help to improve the quality of decision making about feeding options in care of patients with dementia.
Alzheimer's Disease and Related Disorders (dementia) are a group of serious life limiting illness that cause significant challenges to our public health system, with significant illness burden for both the person with dementia and the caregiver. At the end of life, over 230,000 persons with dementia annually are cared for in hospice, yet hospice agencies are ill prepared to care for this population and often resort to inappropriate pharmacologic measures such as antipsychotics ...
This clinical pilot trial is being conducted to learn more about the infant's feeding behavior while being fed by indwelling nasogastric tube placement or by intermittent oral tube placement. Healthy preterm infants who are transitioning from gavage to oral feedings via oral intermittent tube insertion may achieve full oral feeds by bottle/breast at an earlier gestational age than infants feeding with indwelling tubes and may be ready for earlier discharge.
Many persons with dementia exhibit behaviors that caregivers find difficult to manage. The purpose of this study is to test the effectiveness of individualized recreational activities for reducing agitation and passivity in persons with dementia.
The aim of this study is to evaluate the technical feasibility of the new tube placement technology in healthy volunteers and, if proven feasible, in critically ill patients requiring placement of a feeding tube.
This study aims to examine whether providing tube feeding with a formula enriched with omega-3 fats is better than traditional standard tube feeding in terms of preserving nutritional status, improving immune function and reducing medical complications following major upper Gut cancer surgery.
This prospective, observational study is designed to observe the use of a high calorie, high protein tube feed product in adults that are malnourished or at risk of malnutrition, as assessed by a clinician, and have been placed on a nutritional care plan which includes a tube feeding formula, per standard of care.
The purpose is to determine what factors, if any, lead to delayed feeding, discharge with a NG tube, G-tube placement or Nissen fundoplication.
Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and acute lung injury (ALI) are medical conditions that occur when there is severe inflammation and increased fluids in both lungs, making it difficult for the lungs to function properly. Hospital treatment for a person with ALI/ARDS often includes the use of a breathing machine, or ventilator, until the person is able to breathe without assistance. Initiating proper nutrition through a feeding tube early in a person's hospital stay ma...
This study evaluates the effect and process of individualized music therapy for home-dwelling persons with mild to moderate dementia. The music therapy is administered individually and includes a close caregiver. Memory of familiar music is found to be retained in persons with dementia. It is assumed to facilitate autobiographical memories and stimulate interaction with significant others. Based on time series analyses we will use statistical process control to evaluate when an...
