When they are unable to consume food or liquids safely by mouth, tube feeding is a technique to keep them nourished. If they are unconscious or having difficulty swallowing, this may occur. Tube feeding can deliver fluids and medications in addition to nourishment.
The contents of the stomach can also be removed using it. Gavage, enteral feeding, or tube feeding are terms for this.
Enteral nutrition has several benefits over parenteral feeding, including safety, efficacy, reduced risk of infection, lower cost, prevention of gut atrophy, and preservation of the gut’s barrier function. Most of the time, it is not painful, and many people eventually get used to it.
The Global Smart feeding tube Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
US FDA Has Approved the Entarik Platform, According to Gravitas Medical The groundbreaking Entarik Feeding Tube System and Feeding Tube from Gravitas Medical Inc. have been approved by the FDA.
This innovative system comes with a monitor and sensor-based nasogastric tube. Entarik gives carers access to enteral nutrition intelligence that enables quick decisions for patients using feeding tubes, assisting in preventing complications and enhancing outcomes.
The Entarik Feeding Tube System and Feeding Tube have received FDA 510(k) clearance, according to a press release from Gravitas Medical. This ground-breaking enteral nutrition delivery system from Gravitas is expected to be the first of many new products that will transform enteral feeding into enteral intelligence.
This is the first step in their objective to employ technology to replace the present nutrition delivery methods with an enteral nutrition intelligence platform that aids carers in making quick decisions for their patients.
The system comprises a “smart” nasogastric tube with sensors to track the tube’s tip’s position in relation to the stomach and a monitor that continually tracks the tube’s position while the patient is being fed.
The device offers real-time alerts for tube movement and helps lower the rate of misplacing during first positioning.The risk to the patient increases when a feeding tube moves from the stomach to the oesophagus.
The Entarik System is made to warn ICU clinical staff when a nasogastric tube moves so they can take prompt action to help prevent complications.
