1. Why is an enteral feeding tube inserted?

Go back

Enteral Feeding Tube is used to administer fluids and/or medication through the nasoenteric route in patients who are physically unable to get adequate nutrition through normal chewing and swallowing. The feeding tube passes through the nose, pharynx and esophagus and ends in the stomach, providing nutrition through ports at the end. Enteral feeding tube is applied when the doctor deems it necessary.
