Understanding Enteral Feeding with Kangaroo Feeding Pumps

Enteral feeding through Kangaroo feeding pumps is a medical procedure whereby complete nutrition is delivered directly to a patients jejunum, duodenum, or stomach. This procedure is very important in managing the health of patients who have gut dysfunction, mechanical dysphagia, chronic neurological dysphagia, are critically ill, or have poor voluntary intake. Sometimes, parenteral nutrition is used as a supplement, in cases where a patient’s nutritional habits do not require full enteral support.
