Enteral Feeding is basically a way of feeding nutritionally complete food which contains essential nutrients like protein, minerals, vitamins, carbohydrate, fat, water etc. directly into the stomach or duodenum or jejunum with the help of a tube. This method is used for various reasons and might either be needed for a short term or permanently in some cases. It plays a major role in managing patients with poor voluntary intake, gut dysfunction, chronic neurological or mechanical dysphagia. It is also considered with patients suffering from malnutrition or those who are in the risk of it. It is used for children as well as for adults.
For short term treatments, Nasogastric (NG) and Nasojejunal (NJ) tubes are commonly used and are dependent on gastric emptying. These are fairly easy to insert. For any disease lasting longer than a month, Percutaneous Endoscopic Gastrotomy (PEG) or Jejunostomy should be considered. These are directly inserted surgically or endoscopically through the stomach wall. Inserting these can be difficult and one has to be extremely cautious as it can lead to complications.
