[Feeding tubes for tube feeding].
Ned Tijdschr Geneeskd. 1998 Mar 14; 142(11):557-61.NT

Abstract

Several techniques are available for the provision of enteral nutritional support. Nasal tubes, gastrostomy tubes and jejunostomy tubes can be distinguised. Nasal tubes are used for short-term support, gastrostomy tubes (preferably via a percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy) for long-term support (over 4 to 6 weeks), while (needle catheter) jejunostomy tubes are most often used to provide early enteral nutrition immediately after operations on the proximal gastrointestinal tract. The most frequent complications are: with the nasal tube dislodging, clogging and aspiration, with the gastrostomy tube peristomal infection and with the jejunostomy tube, obstruction. It should further be noted that the quantity of enteral nutrition prescribed and that actually administered may differ substantially so that patients with a feeding device may even become malnourished. With proper patient selection and secure control of the energy balance, feeding tubes are simple (temporary) devices that improve the patient's health and quality of life.
