Change in tube feeding practice improves nutrition for ICU patients, audit finds

26 agosto 2014

A practice of a certain amount of feeding per hour can be interrupted by tests, procedures, or emergencies. Changing to a volume-based system, which calls for a certain nutrition volume per day, could reduce underfeeding.
