Enteral nutrition, also known as tube feeding refers to any method of feeding that uses the gastrointestinal (GI) tract to deliver caloric requirements, including normal oral diet or liquid supplements. Nasoenteral, also known as nasogastric feeding tube is placed in the stomach through the nose, whereas a jejunostomy tube is placed directly through the skin. The tube feeding formula is used in patients suffering from chronic conditions including head trauma, cancer, and strokes. Moreover, the formula helps premature infants to gain required nutrition and medications. According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), nasogastric tube is most preferred method for short term feeding in the acute phase of stroke and is commonly used for providing nutrition, hydration, and essential medications.
