What is Peg Tube Feeding and Why It’s Done

Tube feeding, also called enteral nutrition, is a way food can get into the body if a person is unable to eat via the mouth or the food intake is too low. Enteral food comes in liquid form and is given through a tube that goes into the stomach or small intestine.

A patient is prescribed enteral nutrition, or tube feeding if he can’t eat enough to get the nutrients his body needs. A doctor may recommend tube feeding for the following reasons:
  • Cancer disease and/or cancer treatment
  • Medical conditions that make swallowing hard or painful
  • Brain and spinal cord problems such as stroke or ALS
  • Digestive tract issues and damages

Types of Feeding Tubes

Feeding tubes deliver liquid nutrients directly to the stomach or small intestine. Options include:




Tube feeding Through the Nose

If you need short-term enteral feeding like for a month or less, your doctor may recommend inserting a tube through the nose and into the stomach (Naso Gastric Tube) or the small intestine (Naso-Jejunal tube).




Through the skin on your abdomen

If you’ll need longer-term tube feeding, your doctor may recommend a procedure to place a tube through the skin on your abdomen and into your stomach (gastrostomy) or into your small intestine (jejunostomy).

At Salamati we understand that having a tube feeding may cause anxiety to both clients and family members. Our DHA registered staff are here to support you 24/7 with various package suitable for all UAE Clients.

How are tube feeds given?

Tube feeding can be given in 3 different ways:




Using a Pump

A pump is used for continuous or intermittent feeds where the formula is given without stopping for 24 hours or as prescribed by the Doctor.




Using Gravity Drip

A gravity drip is used to give larger amounts of formula over a shorter period of time usually 4 to 6 times Daily.




Using a Syringe

Feeding using a syringe is the fastest method where larger amounts of the formula are given at a time. it is usually given 3 to 4 times daily.
