The subject of enteral nutrition is an interesting one both to the healthcare professionals working in this area of practice and individuals who may benefit from nutritional support. These individuals usually have functional guts but may be suffering from dysphagia with underlying neurological deficit or the effect of radiotherapy treatment. Enteral nutrition involves the administration of nutritional support to individuals whose nutritional requirements cannot be met by the provision of normal diet. Thus, it could be in the form of oral nutritional support and/or the use of tube feeding. Often, enteral nutrition provision involves the assessment of nutritional status, determination of nutritional requirements, establishment of feeding regimes and management of patients, pumps, feeds and feeding tubes.
Researchers in this field are also keen to evaluate the effect of enteral feeding protocols, algorithms and guidelines on patients with different medical conditions in various care settings. There have also been series of comparisms between the use of feeding tubes, feeding methods and management approaches. Economic evaluation of enteral nutrition and Home Enteral Nutrition (HEN) teams to show the benefits of Home enteral tube feeding (HETF) due to the rising cost of HETF has been the subject of intense debate. There have been reviews on advances, challenges and prospects in enteral nutrition.
This special issue is intended to provide current information on enteral nutrition and an insight into recent advances, challenges and prospects of enteral nutrition.
