Clinical and Safety challenges in Enteral feeding

Around 30 million feeding tubes are inserted annually worldwide1

Between 2-5% of these tubes are accidentally placed in the lungs2-4  leading to a 30% chance of a collapsed lung or possible fatality2-3.

Clinical and Safety challenges in Enteral feeding

Verification of enteral feeding tube tip location.

Radiographic confirmation has drawbacks such as possible misinterpretation, increasing patient’s X-ray exposure (with additional costs) and delaying feeding1.
  1. Boeykens, J Perioper Crit Intensive Care Nurs 2018,

Between 20-50% of hospital patients, including those in ICU, are malnourished.

Malnutrition has significant impact on both clinical outcomes and healthcare systems. It is typically associated with higher infection rates, increased morbidity and mortality, longer hospital stays, increased healthcare costs and reduced quality of life1-2.
