Around 40% of hospitalised patients in Australia are affected by malnutrition.

Without nutritional support, these patients may deteriorate, leading to poor outcomes such as prolonged hospital stays, infection and compromised recovery (DAA 2018).

What is Enteral Feeding?

Enteral feeding is the delivery of liquid nutritional support through a tube inserted into the gastrointestinal tract. It is used for patients who are unable to meet their nutritional requirements through oral intake. This may be because:

  • Their oral intake is inadequate (e.g. poor appetite); or
  • They are physically unable to intake orally in a safe way (e.g. dysphagia, reduced level of consciousness).
