Tube Feeding Formulas
A feeding tube is a medical tube used to provide the necessary nutrition to patients who cannot obtain nutrition orally. The tubing is usually made of polyurethane or silicone. Proper tube feeding includes a formula rich in nutritional supplements and is necessary for the health of patients.
There are many food options for tube feedings. Patients are given a special tube formula based on their medical condition. Special formulas are also available to meet the needs of patients with specific medical problems, such as:
- Controlled carbohydrate
- GI dysfunction
- Glucose intolerance
- Glutamine supplemented
And countless other diseases
Formulas For Feeding Tubes
The patients "food" is a special feeding formula and are engineered so that the feeding tube will not clog the tube. It is important that manufacturers of the feeding formula do not use a compound that is not too thick and leaves a messy residue that would clog the feeding tube.
Most formulas like the ones distributed by Nestle are intended to have water mixed to them help keep they patient hydrated. Nutritional products designed for tube feeding are formulated to provide all the nutrients the patient will need. These nutrients include proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals. Some feeding tube formulas contain dietary fiber and other non-nutritional elements.
