This approach of refeeding with the NG tube is well accepted by patients. It is not a forced feeding, and it is not instead of eating. They eat normally during the day If enteral feeding is likely to be needed for periods of more than 4-6 weeks, a gastrostomy tube can be inserted directly into the stomach through the abdominal wall, using relatively simple endoscopic or radiological procedures. 33 Gastrostomy tubes allow feeding without the inconvenience, discomfort, and embarrassment of NG access, and.
The ESPEN guidelines for critical care suggest a maximum caloric intake of 20-25 kcal/kg/day during the acute and initial phase of critical illness, but 25-30 kcal/kg/day during the anabolic recovery phase. 2 Certain patients (eg, malnourished or morbidly obese) may have different caloric requirements than the standard patient Nasogastric Intubation and Feeding. If you can't eat or swallow, you may need to have a nasogastric tube inserted. This process is known as nasogastric (NG) intubation. During NG intubation.
Firth (2013) recommended for debilitated patients, who cannot tolerate immediate feeding with liquid or blenderised foodstuffs, administering 0.5 to 0.5 ml/kg of an isotonic solution containing sodium, glucose and key amino acids, either intermittently or by constant rate infusion (CRI), increasing the volume by 50% every 8 to 12 hours depending on the progress the patient makes and their tolerance of the feeds Tube feeding products are liquid food, often called formula, which are given through a special tube to make sure you get the nutrition and water you need.

Attach adaptor and tubing to NG tube The diet plan for every patient is planned as per the need, metabolic changes, and basic food habits. As per the body requirement of the patient a diet can vary from- a full fluid diet based on milk products or high caloric diet to low caloric diet or high protein diet to low protein diet or fat-free diet or low salt to no salt diet, etc

In previously well nourished patients, starting hypocaloric feeding appears safe (while targeting 100% protein goal). This was previously discussed here. In previously malnourished patients, starting at a lower rate may be wise to avoid refeeding syndrome Taylor, S., 2013, Confirming nasogastric feeding tube position versus the need to feed, Intensive and Critical Care Nursing, 29, pg 59-69.
