Parenteral feeding - Definition


Definition


Parenteral feeding is a form of feeding that allows the nutrition necessary to the functioning of the body to be supplied. It is used when oral feeding is no longer possible and when tube or enteral feeding is inappropriate. It consists of the placement of an intravenous drip or port. Parenteral feeding is mainly used for patients suffering from anorexia, advanced senility which no longer allows for automated food intake, digestive lesions, or those taking medication.
