Enteral tube feeding in infants
Katherine Burnand, Joe Curry
Oral feeding (breast or bottle) is the preferred route for feeding babies, however there are a myriad of conditions that may necessitate enteral (tube) feeding. The more common conditions include prematurity, severe gastro-oesophageal reflux, failure to thrive, neurologic and neuromuscular impairment and anatomical congenital malformations. In recent years the range and ease of enteral access procedures have greatly improved; this article will review new techniques, equipment and accessories.
