“Evaluating Nutrient Loss In Continuous Enteral Feeding Systems”

Nutrition Advisory Committee (NAC) presents…”Evaluating Nutrient Loss In Continuous Enteral Feeding Systems”

Very low birth weight (VLBW) and other high-risk infants require accurate delivery of nutrients to promote appropriate growth. However, loss of nutrients may occur during gavage feeding of fortified human milk. This presentation examines literature that has quantified nutrient loss based on current feeding strategies including the use of a human milk-based human milk fortifier and different feeding systems.
