Enteral feeding - Definition


Definition


Enteral feeding is put in place when an individual can no longer feed himself/herself orally, notably in the case of anorexia, lesions in the digestive tract, or major aqueous diarrhea without the possibility of oral replacement. This allows the nutritional needs, necessary for the functioning of the body, to be met. A tube, called a nasogastric tube, is introduced into the digestive tract through the nose. A pouch called a stoma can also be attached to the digestive system surgically.
