Tube Feeding

Tube feeding or enteral feeding is a procedure that is used to provide food and nutrients to people who cannot eat through their mouth. Sometimes this condition may be due to swallowing difficulties. Tube feeding is usually done for a temporary period of time. But certain chronic conditions may also require permanent tube placement. Feeding tubes are made of silicone or PU (polyurethane) and are classified according to the usage and place of insertion. The feed that is provided via flexible feeding tube is usually in liquid form. This feed provide nutrition to the patient.
