Handbook of Drug Administration

Overview

An enteral feeding tube provides a means of maintaining nutritional intake when there is limited access to the gastrointestinal tract. The use of enteral feeding tubes has increased for both short and long term feeding in both primary and secondary care due to the increase in awareness of the importance of adequate nutritional intake.

Handbook of Drug Administration via Enteral Feeding Tubes is a practical guide to the safe administration of medicines via enteral feeding tubes. Ten chapters provide the background knowledge to inform clinical decisions, and the accompanying 344 monographs contain guidance on the safe administration of specific drugs and formulations.

Contents include: types of enteral feeding tubes, tube flushing, restoring and maintaining patency, drug therapy review, medication formulation choice, unlicensed medication use, health and safety and interactions. Handbook of Drug Administration via Enteral Feeding Tubes is an essential guide for pharmacists, doctors, nurses, dieticians, and also for nursing homes and hospices.
