Enteral nutrition

exp date isn't null, but text field is

Enteral feeding may be justified for patients unable to meet their nutritional requirements orally. This may be via a nasoenteric tube (eg NG), gastrostomy tube (eg PEG) or jejunostomy tube. There are a number of nutritionally complete feeds available and the Dietician will recommend a feed to meet the patient’s nutritional requirement. Enteral feed interaction information is available from the BNF.
