What is Enteral Nutrition?
Also known as Tube Feeding, Enteral Nutrition, is a system of delivering nutrition directly to your stomach or small intestine. Your doctor might recommend tube feeding if you cannot obtain nutrition by mouth, are unable to swallow safely, or need a nutritional supplement.
